I am appreciative of your interest in Kumamoto, my home town. I know it is not easy at all for you to get here, but Kumamoto is a very worthwhile place to visit with many attractive spots such as Mt. Aso, Kumamoto Castle, hot spring resorts, etc. Please tell me about your interests and the kind of places you would like to visit. I am flexible with scheduling to meet your needs, helping to make the most of your time here since it is your vacation and your tour.
I worked for foreign affiliated companies in Tokyo for years, and returned to Kumamoto where I have been engaged in labor and social security attorney as well as a tour guide. I also like to travel around Japan and the world.
Again, I would like to tailor your visit to suit your own interests and time constraints. As a native and a local tour guide, I will make sure you will have a fabulous time in Kumamoto.
Let's explore this interesting region together!
A Recent Review of this guide
Ikue provided a long day's adventure to Mt ASO, the nearby lookouts, village markets and a soba lunch in a family restaurant. She was good company, full of information and entertaining. It was a long day but she made it worthwhile and finally escorted us to the right train. We had come from Nagasaki early in the morning so it was a long day, but very worthwhile. The weather was kind so we had a good view of the volcano.
