Beppu has recently become the 3rd most popular cruising destination on many of the International Cruise Companies Japan itineraries in Kyushu after Nagasaki and Kagoshima.
I have had some many requests by existing and potential customers if I could do a Shore Excursion in this region of Kyushu. I can understand that it takes a lot of time, effort as well as trust to hire a private guide for your shore excursions especially when we are talking about Japan, where there may be language, cultural and timing issues.
I believe now I will be able to attract a wider clientele by offering this new service and will continue to strive and make adjustments to my business setup and deliverance of services.
On this day, even though there wasn't a Cruise Ship in port, a Japanese Naval destroyer was in its place and I was able to make sure the logistics of a smooth tour pick up were viable. In the not too distant future, I will revisit this location on a real Cruise arrival and make any further adjustments if necessary.
