Welcome to Kyusyu Island! I am a licensed tour guide living in the center of Kumamoto, which is located the center of Kyusyu. I love to show you around this beautiful area with a lot of different attractive destinations of historical sites, breathtaking nature spots, relaxing hot spring resorts, and many more. I am appreciative of your interest in Kyusyu. Depending on your interest, I will customize your tour. I am a very flexible person.

I ensure you will not regret that you have chosen Kyusyu as your destination.

I worked for American companies in Tokyo for years, and returned to Kumamoto, my home town. I love my hometown and my profession as a tour guide.

Again, I am ready to tailor your visit to suit your own interests within time constraints.

Kiki (Ikue's nickname) took us on a 4 hour walking tour of Nagasaki which enabled us to see the main points of interest. We spent much of the time at the Atom Bomb Museum and Peace Park - a sobering but necessary experience, and Kiki proved to be very knowledgeable and supplemented the information. We also had time at the Glover House, and again Kiki made this a fascinating visit. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wanting an in-depth cultural experience
