Depending on the number of customers, we need to hire a taxi of a suitable size for the tour. You will pay the taxi fee directly to the taxi driver in cash or credit card depending on the taxi company.


My coverage areas are all Okinawa prefecture, including remote islands. But I live in the Okinawa main island, so a starting and ending point should be in Okinawa main island.


I am working in both Okinawa and Nagasaki, working 2 areas for about half a half days a month. If you intend to travel in northern Kyushu such as Nagasaki, Saga and Fukuoka, visit my another account page(Nagasaki area). There is another my schedule calendar in those areas.

Okinawa Main Island Tour Reviews

Delightful Day

Hero is an excellent guide with flexibility to tailor things to suit your specific desires. He provides very clear guidance and information with a wide range of knowledge. A pleasure to be with. Clearly a five star guide.

Very flexible tour guide

Yukihiro was knowledgeable, on time and willing to flex with our schedule. Saw castles, gardens and beautiful sea coast in Okinawa. He even helped me find my house i lived in as a child 60 years ago. Would use him again.

Great Historical Tour By A Very Supportive and Resourceful Guide!

Hero was absolutely fantastic! Hero was able to personally rent a vehicle and drive for us … his knowledge and great sense of humor (as well as his great English) let my family ask more questions than I could personally handle! I would whole-heartedly recommend Hero as a tour guide in Okinawa, and I hope to get another chance to meet him in Okinawa in the future! Thanks again Hero!
