I was born in China and lived there until I was 17 years old. Then I moved to Japan where I attended a university. After that I taught Chinese and English at a high school in Kagoshima City for about 12 years. I moved to Amami in 2016.

I am fascinated by the beautiful nature and various cultures of Amami Islands. I am looking forward to introducing you to the attraction of Amami Islands in Chinese and English.

I am so glad that I can work as a Tour guide interpreter on Amami Islands as l would like to share experiences with people from all over the world, introducing them to the wonderful Amami Islands.

I hope that you have a great time here on these beautiful Islands.

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.(Tour guide services)
