2019 Winter Biei and Furano

Winter Biei and Furano are also very interesting.

(1)Shikisai-no-Oka Hill: You can enjoy snowmobile(1000yen) and snow rafting(600yen) there.

(2)Restaurant Daimaru: Here is my favorite restaurant in Biei.  This restaurant has many kinds of foods, and has an English menu.  The curry and rice, pork fried katlet bowled rice, and udon noodle is so tasty!

(3)Shirahige Waterfall: You can watch blue water from the bridge.  The water is the same as the famous Blue Pond.  You can watch the blue water all year round instead of the Pond.

(4)Fukiage Hot Spring: It's a real outdoor hotspring in a mountain.  If you want to try Japanese hot springs, here is also enjoyable.

“ Too many types of transportation were Frustrating ”

Good
2 weeks ago Traveler: Linda -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

Our day with Shinobu was good overall but frustrating at times. We visited the things we had wanted to see, but the frustrating part was using so many different types of transportation that seemed to waste so much time. Also, communication in English was challenging. The day would have been so much better had he rented a jumbo taxi and saved the time and costs of purchasing tickets for short ...

8 months ago Traveler: Venessa -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

Shinobu helped us to enjoy a day in Hakodate - he was prompt, courteous, responsive and keen to show us as much as he could in 6 hours. He was considerate to our needs and thoughtful. His English is not yet fluent but this will improve in time. He was a good escort and used the local transport systems well - his knowledge of the town of Hakodate was not extensive and perhaps a little more backg...

“ Hakodate by Tram ”

Good
1 year ago Traveler: Diana -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

Our tour of Hakodate gave us a good feel for the city. We took the trams to/from different parts of the city. Shinobu guided us thru the intricacies but had a problem describing the culture, telling us the history of the city and understanding what we wanted to do. Although he tries very hard, his English needs much improvement before continuing with English tours. We had 2 Australians, 2 Canadian...

“ Sakura viewing ”

Poor
1 year ago Traveler: GUPTE -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

Was good as escort but not as guide. No information about city or attraction was given. Did not show initiative to make trip comfortable by small gestures. We went for sight seeing directly from airport. I was carrying 3 bags but did not volunteer to hold the bag while getting into bus or showing tickets. Spoken english could be better if not fluent. Was helpful in rebooking Shinkasen ticket.

“ Very Enjoyable Trip in Otaru ”

Good
1 year ago Traveler: Karen -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

My family thoroughly enjoyed our trip in Otaru, the glass blowing experience and the sushi-making were well received by my 4 yr old son. Shinobu-san is very helpful and polite. The only comment is that the cost quoted for both the glass blowing and sushi-making were only for 1 person, but this trip was for 3 of us - myself, my husband and my son, so the cost of the trip was 3x than what was quot...

“ Japan..different city every day ”

Good
1 year ago Traveler: Cindy -   Tour Guide: Shinobu

Shinobu did an excellent job pre-touring where we went. Unfortunately his English is not very good so communication was very difficult. Also, it would have been better if we had known the entire cost earlier rather than a day or two before when additional expenses were added. The restaurant choices were very good and we really enjoyed them. I would have to say Shinobo is more of a guide to g...
