About the tour

Join us as we take a walk in the port village of Tomari. Here there are monuments to famous explorers Commodore Perry and Basil Hall. We will take a look at the monuments, and the stories of how the western world started relations with Asia and how even today the cultural differences are having a effect. We will see the Port and finish at the international cemetery which is a really beautiful and historic place dating back over 200 years.

Meet James and Becka

James and Becka

The real Karate Kids!James and Becka both originally come from the U.K, and met through a passion for martial arts. James studied Japanese on the mainland and discovered Okinawa over 20 years ago! (Wow how old is that guy!?) Becka came to find the birthplace of karate in 2014, and never left after discovering how much this little island has to offer. They spend their days practising karate, and travelling around Okinawa discovering and sharing with their friends and visitors. Over the years, that has included some pretty famous people such as Anthony Bourdain who filmed his Parts Unknown series all around Okinawa with their help. Let them show you the history, the beauty, and the secrets of Okinawa!

It was interesting but fell asleep halfway through (nothing to do with the tour guide) so hope the tour will be repeated
