Hi, my name is HASHIZAKI Schingo, just call me Schingo.
I am a National licensed English speaking tour guide living in a mountainous place “Gokanosho” which is a collection of 5 small villages. I’ve been working as a professional tour guide for over 7 years on Kyushu island in all the prefectures of Kumamoto, Miyazaki, Oita, Kagoshima, Saga, Nagasaki and Fukuoka. To become a National licensed English speaking tour guide, I passed all of the 4-subject (English / Japan’s Geography / Japan’s History / Common knowledge [Politics / Economics / Industries / Culture]) examination which is held only once a year.
I have lived in Kumamoto Prefecture for over 40 years in total since I was born. The more I learn about Kumamoto, the more I get to love Kumamoto. We are very proud that Kumamoto gives us Japan’s beautiful aspects such as mountains with full of trees, clean rivers, various agricultural products, historical sites, traditional events, tasty local foods, the way of living which have been imparted from generation to generation, and so on. Should you visit Kumamoto and its surroundings, and would like to have some really good experiences of Japan, just ask me before you go any further. I’d be pleased to give you some suitable advice on what you need and tour arrangement.
