Yumiko was my guide for two days in Hokaido. She was absolutely fantastic. She was informative, knowledgeable, punctual and friendly.
The first day we went hiking up a mountain in Minami-Ku, Sapporo. The panoramic view at the top of the mountain was awesome. The trail was covered with tall trees and the music of birds and insects was amazing.
After the hike we walked to an onsen(hot springs) and enjoyed the delicious Japanese style lunch. After lunch we went to the onsen to relax. Next to the onsen we took a tour of the Ainu Museum which Yumiko was very knowledgeable.
The second day she took me to the breakwater in Sapporo for fishing. This was the first for me in Japan and I enjoyed the ocean air. I even caught fish. We ate lunch at a fish market restaurant and I had a delicious seafood Japanese style lunch. We headed to Otaru to tour a sake factory and Yumiko explained how sake was made.
I had a great time with my guide in Hokaido. I highly recommend Yumiko on your next trip to Hokaido.
I definitely plan to return to Hokaido. Thank you Yumiko for the "Omotenashi"
