Hi, I’m Noriko

I’ve lived in Nagasaki for 9 years

I speak Japanese and some English

I am a guide interpreter


Many thanks for visiting my page. Please call me Norah. I am a Japanese government-licensed guide interpreter. I love history, food, and shopping! I am excited that you are considering Nagasaki as one of your destinations. Nagasaki is immensely popular among the Japanese. Can you guess why this small peninsula attracts so many travelers? Is it because of its fascinating history, landscapes, festivals, food, or unique culture? Let me help you find the answer. Let us explore Nagasaki off the beaten path, while enjoying local restaurants, and hearing stories that are never found in the guidebooks!
