Fukuoka is one of the big cities in Japan, however, it has a good balance. I mean this city has 50% city area and another 50% local one. So, you are able to enjoy its nature, various kinds of fresh condition food and kindness of people. I am not only a tour guide but an amateur pianist, golfer, fisherman and an announcer for radio and TV stations. See you in Fukuoka city in Kyushu island, Japan.

Our Story

Fukuoka Walking Tour guide
When I traveled in Central America in 2008, I met a Costa Rican family in an island in Panama and we had traveled together after that. In Costa Rica, they were also so hospitable to me that they let me stay at their house, made a homemade meal, told me their popular music and took me to historical sites, nice restaurants, a local market and a coffee plantation in a small village where I could never have visited by myself. I had started being interested in the country although I had an original plan to stay for only a short time.

This trip became one of my best memories because I could make friends with the local people, eat the regional foods, experience traditional culture, was impressed by the beautiful nature and could learn about the country. Now I dream of the day that I will visit there again with my family.

Just like you, we also love traveling. I have ever traveled Asia, Europe, Oceania, North, Central and South America, over 50 countries. I was able to enjoy myself in almost all countries thanks to all of the local people and the travelers whom I met while traveling. I came to love traveling and travelers.

It is our turn to give thanks to you.
