20歳の頃から旅に出てアジア放浪生活やネパール居候生活、フィリピン駐在生活を経て西表島に辿り着いたのが2016年夏。一度島を離れるも、自然を愛する人と過ごした経験が忘れられずガイドを志し帰って来ました。
とにかく話し上手、聞き上手なので一日ずっと一緒でも笑いが絶えません。スノーボードが好きで冬は北国の山へこもるので、沖縄でのガイドは夏限定。西表島が一番輝く季節にお会いしましょう。

Welcome to Iriomote island.

Long ago, I only had two kayaks and I did not have a car too. Therefore we had to go to the start point by bike. Our tours were usually hard.
But now, I have some cars, an office, five shower rooms, and a lot of kayaks. We can receive many guests every day.
These things are “Thanks to our guests” Kazaguruma tours is not only a shop for Japanese. People of all nationalities are welcome.
Our staffs are not so good at English, but we have great hospitality. Your enjoyment is our pleasure and mission.
