Hi! I’m George and I’d like to welcome you to my adopted home of Fukuoka, in the beautiful area of Kyushu!

About me:

I’m originally from England, but I’ve been living here for over 10 years. Before that, I spent many years visiting this area and studying the local history and culture. I’m not Japanese and as a foreigner, I’m not in competition with the wonderful Japanese guides here. I just hope to give you an alternative option and something a little different. I have a lot of enthusiasm and love for Japan and Japanese culture and I’d love to pass that on to you, but with simple, direct explanations and a fresh and unique perspective on the local history, culture and daily life.

My tours:

I aim to give you a gentle, fun and relaxed tour, packed with as much information as you need to achieve your goals, but with a free atmosphere, where you can take time to yourselves to relax, wander and explore a little. I’m a big history buff, so I’m especially knowledgable about the historical sites here and I can go into great detail, if you’d like that, or I can give you the key information you need to get things done, then hang back a little and let you enjoy it at your own pace.

We can talk about whatever you’d like to do. Your tour is yours and I’m just here to guide, inform and be there to help when you need me.

Also, the tours and dates shown are rough outlines. I can change to suit your goals whatever you’d like to do.. short tours, full days, extra hours, city, countryside, other cities and nearby areas.. I can even take photos for you! So, feel free to contact me and we can plan something cool!

George knows the city and it transportation

I did everything I wanted to do with George. He knows the city and if you looking to visit Fukuoka, explore what might interest you and let him know some of your interest.s. He can also add to your suggestions as he showed me some places that few people know about. Overall I had a great experience with him.

Fukuoaka 6 hour tour

George is a very friendly and knowledgeable local who has lived in the area for about 11 years. We really enjoyed his tour and he was extremely considerate of our group and what our group's needs were. I would definitely recommend George as a private tour guide when you visit the area.
