Traveler, Local

In the 3 years that I’ve lived in Japan, I’ve travelled extensively within the country, visiting 20 of the 47 prefectures, including all 8 in the Kyushu region where I live.

I can provide general tips and advice for travelling in Japan, as well as specialized information on the following areas:
Miyazaki, Fukuoka, Oita, Kagoshima, Okinawa, Hiroshima, Osaka, Tokyo, Fuji Five Lakes, Ibaraki, Nagano and Toshogu.

As a resident of Miyazaki, one of the less explored areas of Japan, I’ll also help you access unique experiences and hidden gems, like canoeing down the sacred Takachiho Gorge, or walking with wild horses in Cape Toi.

Other services I can provide:
- Expert local advice on food, transport, sightseeing and accommodation
- Researching your destination and creating a personalized itinerary
- Being your local guide
