About Tour Guide Yasuhiko I.

Hi! My name is Yasuhiko Ikeda, please call me "Yasu", meaning "hello" in Greek. After I worked in an electric company in Japan, I became a professional guide to introduce my town, my country.


After Covid-19, tourism is back! you may want to have more private experiences like no other people had before. Then, my home, Fukuoka, has a lot to show you around. So many nice places, cultures, and nice local people with delicious local foods.


I like sports, climbing, running etc. I also like to visit temples and shrines. I am also an active backpacker, (have been to 50+ countries mostly in Asia and Europe over 30 years) So, I suppose I know well about where you would like to visit. :) I have never lived outside of Japan, however, you may also feel better that my speaking English is not typical Japanese "flat" intonation.


Where you would like to go, I will be there with you! I am looking forward to inquiry.

Yasuhiko I. Japan Tour Reviews

Fukuoka Experience

Yasuhiko is an excellent guide. This was my first trip to Fukuoka and I really enjoy Fukuoka. It was easy to communicate with him because he speaks English well. He guided me to my hotel and showed me other places I was interested. He is professional and friendly. I will book with him again.

Thank you for your comment, Lynne. I am very happy to know you liked Fukuoka very much. Please come back again I will highly welcome you. -Yasu

A Professional and Personable Friend plus Guide

My wife and I booked Yasu in two occasions: to receive us at the airport cum walking tour in Hakata plus Tenjin and African Safari. Our flight was delayed for a good whole hour and after clearing immigration, when the sliding door opens, there he is: holding up my name with a smile. His eyes communicate a promise: I am here although you are one hour plus late. From the airport to hotel to drop off our luggage to the walking tour, Yasu communicates efficiently step by step in each maneuver and seeking our opinion in each step. He even taught us how to ride the Japanese sub-way, lol. Next day was the Safari. We went down to the lobby fifteen minute earlier than the scheduled time and he is already there. It was a long commute and no boring moments with Yasu. He sang well and we exchange jokes. By the way, he is a great photographer too. All the pics and videos turns out great. In conclusion, we had a marvelous time, thank you Yasu San. Wishing you all the best in your upcoming marathon and yes, you will complete the whole 42.195 km, we have confidence in you.

Stephen san, thank you for writing a review. I am so happy that we were able to share such nice experiences together. Have safe flight back to your home. See you later!

Satisfaction guaranteed

Yasuhiko-san is professional and personable. While he's ordinarily a tour guide, and I can imagine him being a knowledgeable and engaging one, I needed a Japanese-English interpreter for a meeting in Fukuoka. Yasu not only participated actively in our six-hour meeting, ensuring that I was kept in the loop throughout the day, first he scheduled our meeting and made sure he had everyones contact information - just in case. The other participants were busy professors/researchers and a city official, so Yasu's professionalism lent credibility to our gathering. In addition, he suggested that a journalist could support our efforts. When I agreed, he took it upon himself to email and then spoke over the phone with the journalist I had identified as a good match. I would trust Yasu with the best interests of a small or a large group. You can count on him to be well-prepared, attentive, flexible, and guarantee satisfaction.

Erika-san, thank you very much for taking your time for my review. Guiding you was really different from any other guide experiences I had before, and I was a bit anxious how it would go. The moment I met you that feeling disappeared! I liked your personality, your encouragement to others and to yourself, and all of us were so motivated. It believe it was our destiny that you have chosen me, and I was the best one for you in Fukuoka. Keep my fingers crossed for your ancestral trip on the way. Good luck!! -Yasu
