My name is Asako. I would love to show you around my home town of Fukuoka in Kyushu Island. There is so much to see, and what I love about this city is that we can see the old and the new existing next to each other in a perfectly balanced manner. Fukuoka is the most-populated city in Kyushu Island and a very vibrant city with its population still growing, which is rare in Japan.
Born and raised in this livable city, I have been juggling three jobs for the past dozen years or so, that is, being a mother of four kids, an English teacher and a professional tour guide. From this information you can see that I love people. Yes, I like meeting people and sharing joy.
I promise that I will take you to the places that local people think are the best and I do not take you to the places that guidebooks say are good but actually are not good from the local people's point of view.
I am offering some possibilities for tours here and would be happy to work with you to develop a custom tour which will make your visit memorable and fun.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
A Recent Review of this guide
My day with Asako. Exceeded my expectations! She is a terrific ambassador for her country. A wonderful teacher so excited to share her culture and very patient with a first time American visitor! She has only inspired me to want to return to Japan. Study more about Buddhism, the Shinto religions and other layers of the Japanese culture. She felt like an old friend perhaps our spirits were somehow connected in a previous life! Hopefully you feel you've made a new American friend. Arigatou gozaimashita, Deb
