Hi&Konnichiwa! I am "YOKO" live in Katsuura Wakayama near Nachi, a spiritual
place where a big waterfall is worshiped. I am a certified local tour guide for the
Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trails.
Walking in Kumano, listening to the sounds of birds singing and leaves
whispering, you will have a chance to revitalize yourself and get some
inspiration to take back home. My family grows organic rice, tea and vegetables.
I have had the good fortune to travel widely and experience a range of countries
and cultures, including a trip to France, learning English in Florida, a working
holiday in Australia, volunteer work in Bangladesh, and backpacking in India,etc.
I love meeting and talking with people from all over the world.
I like Yoga, hiking, traveling and snorkeling.

I look forward to sharing the beauty of the Kumano pilgrimage trails with you,
while also learning about your adventures!
