About Tour Guide Noboru S.

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Japan. My name is Noboru. I’m a national licensed guide. I was born in Osaka and spent my university student life in Kyoto. And now I have been in Himeji for over 35 years. These cities are in Kansai aea. So,I'm very much familiar with the sightseeing spots and attractions in the area, especially Himeji and its neighboring cities.

If you are looking for someone to show you around the area, please join my tour. I will show you special local dishes in the area as well.

Looking forward to seeing your smile soon.


Important

I guide you in Wakayama, Kumano, Koya-san and Shiga if you pay my transportation fee from Himeji.
