Update of the site: I will be in Nagasaki, Kyushu, in August, tentatively, August the 4th(Tue.) through the 6th (Thur.). I am happy to show you around "hidden Christian sites" with terraced paddy fields, "TA-NA-DA". The sceneries imprinted in Venezia come to my mind when I stand near the Hirado pier. Our itnerary (meeting at Sasebo at 9:00 and finishing there at about 17:30) includes Whale Museum, one of the main local industries of the time, too. I will help you with information on other tourists’ spots on the beaten track. If interested, please e-mail me for the particulars. (as of March 10, 2020)

I am available during the public holiday seasons and semester-end breaks; April 28 - May 6, Dec. 25 - January 7, and the month of August. Could you please bookmark them on your calendar and I will be ready to attend to you. Thank you. Hideaki

Hello, I'm a resident of Ebina, Kanagawa, and am a national government licensed guide and interpreter.

I enjoy showing travelers the countryside of central Honshu, primarily Shizuoka, ranging from the beautiful Izu Peninsula, Shimoda, and the Port of Shimizu, to Kunozan Shrine and Ieyasu TOKUGAWA, the elaborate resting place of Japan's first shogun.

I also enjoy introducing travelers to Japanese culture through home visits with Japanese families, touring Zen temples, and explaining the intricacies of Japanese culture.

I am happy to arrange personalized tours to other places of your interest.
I’ve been a frequent visitor to Kyushu, too.

I am making the most of my long experience as a foreign language education services, escorting VIPs at the Sony showroom in Ginza, Tokyo.
I also offer services to help families and individuals relocating to Japan with VISA applications.

My hobbies are movies, strolling along the river in my neighborhood and am a novice at la lingua italiano.
Let's enjoy touring together, shall we?
I look forward to meeting up with you soon. Thank you.
