Welcome to Tohoku region, the northern part of the main island of Japan!

I am so much in love with Tohoku region, the countryside of Japan. I have been lived in Fukushima for 5 years and attracted by picturesque landscapes such as mountains, lakes and also amazed by unique local festivals and warmhearted people.

In this region, foreign travelers are still few that's mean Tohoku is less crowded compared to other well-known cities. Now is the time to travel to Tohoku region before it gets crowded and find out totally different aspects of Japan.

English tour guide is the most enjoyable job I've experienced ever such as sales at a travel agency, Japanese group tour leader etc because it allows me to meet travelers around the world and tell them about culture, history, and lifestyle of Japan.

You would get more information and would see more in local places if you travel with me.

I am looking forward to traveling with you and discover local places together which many people don't know yet! read more
