Hello/Konnichiha, Welcome to the beautiful Ogasawara islands.
I am your guide Shun. I've lived on Chichijima(the main island in the Ogasawara islands group)for the past 10 years. Prior to this I became a scuba diving instructor in 2006 and have worked Australia, Guam and Fiji before moving to Chichijima in 2010.
I have a strong background in environmental protection and I am currently engaged in the protection of Albatross on uninhabited island of Ogasawara. I also study Ogasawara native insects and help out with efforts for the removal of invasive species.
I love Japanese traditional festival and marine activities as surfing, standup-paddling, fishing and diving.
I am not a native speaker of English, However I learned English through working as a diving instructor in various countries. I will guide you the island with 'Omotenasi-heart', the Japanese spirit of hospitality.
Please contact me before you arrive in Ogasawara.
Shunsuke is friendly and a good guide. He took time to understand what we wanted to see which was really great so we got to see a lot of interesting spots and learn about Ogasawara history, we would really recommend the tour :)
Hi, Mike. Thank you for your reviews. Hope see you again in Chichijima and I will take you to diving next time. Please say thank you to Asha, too. Arigatou! SHUNSUKE TAKEDA
