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!

Eri made this trip the easiest we've ever done, anywhere. On the first day she went out of her way and actually came to meet us at the AirBnB we were staying at. She knows the best places to eat (why else are you coming to Japan?) and not expensive restaurants, either. We traveled by train, bus, subway and even an aerial tram. Of course, there was also a lot of walking. Eri is very knowledgeable about all aspects of Hokkaido. My only advice to Eri is to slow down, sometimes, and let your guests enjoy the scenery and the sounds of Hokkaido.
Craig, thank you for wonderful comment and useful advice. I really enjoyed traveling with both of you. I will take your advice into my next tour. Thanks again.
Our family had a wonderful time with Eri. She was very knowledgeable and had a wealth of historical knowledge about Sapporo. She really went above and beyond for helping us find a lost cell phone (left on a bus). We must have called her a dozen times. Don’t think we would have successfully retrieved the phone had it not been for Thanks for everything Eri!
Thank you, Rich, for a wonderful comment about my guiding. I am honored!! Please enjoy the rest of your journey, and hope he will find another POKEMON😊
Great time today. Flexible n very helpful
