Hide N

Nabari, Mie, Japan

Hello. I am Hideki, Hide for short, a licensed English-speaking tour guide.

Born and raised in Osaka, I live in Mie prefecture (60 km from Osaka)now.
I have been engaged in guiding as a tourist guide for 10 years including the terms as a local volunteer guide.

So, I can show you not only the must-see places but as well, places the average tourist is likely to miss. I can also customize a tour to suit your preferences.

It is my pleasure to learn more about and introduce things Japanese to visitors from overseas.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.

A Recent Review of this guide

Hide was very friendly and informative, and he took use to all of the sights listed on the itinereary, but he will adjust the tour to your liking. We saw a lot in one day. Although he's is supposedly 69 years in age, we walked over 8 miles, and he did not seem to be tired. He hardly smiles if you' re taking his photo, but he will gladly take photos of the group for you. And he loves classic American music (from Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra to Neil Sakada, etc).
