I am Yoko, a licensed tour guide in Kyusyu, a southern island of Japan. Kyusyu has a wide variety of tourist resources such as historical spots, abundant nature, local specialty and so on. Some areas in Kyusyu are still unbeaten tracks for foreigners. I would like as many as people to know about attractions here and explore new world in Japan. Moreover, I’ll include the information about everyday life of ordinary people in terms of tradition and culture of Japan which you can’t find in a guidebook. I hope the articles are helpful for you. Thank you.
