Living in the central part of Japan, I am naturally best informed about Mie, Aichi and Gifu prefectures. However, I lived in Tokyo for 12 years so I am also familiar with Tokyo, Kanagawa and Chiba prefectures.
I have guided my guests to Asakusa, Ueno, Harajuku, Meiji Shrine, Yasukuni Shrine, Lake Hamana, Lake Biwa, Ise Shrine, Takayama city, Toba city, Shima city and so on.
Well versed in alcoholic drinks, I can take my guests to intriguing, traditional gastropubs “Izakayas” especially selected for them with scrumptious dishes perfect for their chosen drinks!
Hooked on the mysterious or spiritual? Let's visit power Spots, sacred locations and places never introduced in publications, many where tales of legendary historic heroes or spiritual icons have been worshipped for millennia!
Let’s talk about Tengu, Kappa, Musashi (and Bruce Lee), marriage vow renewal, and endless topics. My command of English and understanding Western practices have been continuously polished through my 20-year marriage life with my Australian partner.
My biggest pleasure to help visitors make unforgettable memories with tailor made tours.
¡Hola! Soy Hiromi Asada, guía de turismo oficial (español). Vivo en la ciudad de Sapporo de Hokkaido, la isla que está más al norte de Japón. Es famosa por su bella naturaleza, por los centros turísticos de invierno y la cultura del Ainu (indígena de Hokkaido). Me gustan mucho el deporte, la música, el vino, y por supuesto viajar. ¡Vamos a pasear juntos a conocer otro mundo!
I'm Eri, National licenced English guide.
I was born and grew up in Hokkaido. I have moved to various places, but I am now very happy to settle down in Sapporo.
Hokkaido has a lot of beautiful places, and people living here are very friendly and warm-hearted. Even to strangers, we are always very kind to others. So I feel very comfortable living in Hokkaido.
I like bird watching, riding trains, driving and taking photographs, eating good foods, and of course travel. I love Onsen hot springs.
When you ride Hokkaido trains, view from train windows are spectacular, and you will be fully relaxed to be surrounded by beautiful nature in Hokkaido.
Also Hokkaido foods are very, very delicious. Fresh seafood, and dairy products are my favorites.
I hope to see you in Hokkaido.
Travel with me to visit beautiful Hokkaido!
Konnichiwa!! (Hello in Japanese)
I’m Namiko. Please call me Nami.
I’m “Dosanko,” born and grown up in Sapporo, Hokkaido.
I love the beautiful landscapes with lots of natural environments in Hokkaido including Sapporo.
After graduating university 'some??' years ago, I had worked at a car exporting business department at a general trading company. I have lived in Toronto in Canada for a while with my family. After coming back to Japan, I have been teaching English from small children to high school students.
I like travelling, watching foreign TV dramas, theatergoing, touring of restaurants and shopping. I’m also interested in some Japanese cultures such as Tea ceremony and Kabuki which is traditional Japanese form of theater and now designated as UNESCO’s intangible culture.
In Sapporo, we have lots of exciting events like Snow Festival, Yosakoi Dance Festival, Hokkaido Shinto Shrine’s Festival, Sapporo Autumn Fest, Sapporo White Illumination and German Christmas Market all year round. The city is always vibrant, and furthermore within a half hour or so, you can get to the skiing mountains, hot springs and so on.
As Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido, from Sapporo, we can visit the major tourist spots easily such as Otaru, Asahikawa, Niseko, Furano, Hakodate, Noboribesu and Kushiro.
I’d be happy and honored to share these attractions with you and make your trip special here in Hokkaido.
