I have lived, studied, and worked in mainland Japan for almost 60 years. A year ago, I moved to Amami and currently live in the town of Setouchi . Amami is such an attractive place where you can feel close to nature. I would love to customize your tour according to your interests so that you can fully enjoy this great island.

My food and transportation costs are covered in the fixed rate. Entrance fees to most exihibits will be covered as well because my license grants free entry to them.

My own lunch and transportation cost is covered in the fixed rate. Also, you don't need to pay entrance fees with me because my license covers most of them.
