Good short guided tour with Noriko-san

Noriko was experienced, patient, and caring. We enjoyed our time touring around Shuri Castle and Makishi market. Noriko shared a lot of knowledge about Ryukyu with us. Thanks Noriko for the great service. We liked it.

Noriko Y.

Thank you. It was a great pleasure to show around Shuri Castle Site, Pottery street and Makishi area for your family. Thank you for choosing Okinawa.

Nago Area Visit - Churaumi Aquarium, Fukugi Trees, Nakijin Castle Ruins, Orion Brewery

Noriko is very pleasant and patient. Conversation with her is fun and she is forthcoming in sharing information about the lives of ordinary Okinawans (which is a topic of interest for us, even more so than the tourist sights themselves). We have rated her 3-star and not higher only because a significant portion of our tour was self-guided (Churaumi Aquarium and Orion Brewery). As such, we didn't really have a chance to "test" her guiding competence sufficiently.

Noriko Y.

It was great to see you. Thank you for your review. Thank you for choosing Okinawa.

Nakijin and Fukugi Trees

Noriko was a great tour guide! We had to modify our original itinerary during to the typhoon, which was ok with me because she had backup plans. She is very knowledgeable of the history of the island. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Noriko Y.

Thank you for your flexibility and choosing Okinawa. It was great opportunity to be a guide for you. I hope you have a nice holiday in Japan.
