自己紹介

Hello! My name is Fujiko Maeda. I'm a national-licensed tour guide. I was born in Sado Island, off the coast of Niigata Prefecture. I once worked in tourism industry for about 10 years when I lived in Tokyo. Now I'm a persimmon farmer but when time permits I'm happy to guide you here in Sado mainly but also other places, too. We have a lot to offer like beautiful nature, historical sites, local specialties, traditional performing arts, festivals, islanders smiles and so on.
If you'd like to know real Japanese lifestyle, please visit Sado.
I'm sure you'll be satisfied.
Let's explore Sado or other wonderful and beautiful places with me!
Also, if you have any questions about Sado or Japan as a whole, please don't hesitate to email me.

“ A super guide ”

She got everything well-prepared and studied in order to bring me a wonderful journey. I can get my job done smoothly and it should be credit to Fujiko too. Thanks very much.

Fujiko:

“ Shukunegi, the best place ? ”

I do not often take the services of a guide, but I see that our guide Fujiko, is filled with its function, that she likes to share the recesses of her island, that she loves this one, which makes alive his visit. In addition, she is lovely and full of empathy, it was a wonderful moment to spend this afternoon with her, because she was of a partience with us (there was a ils lady, my Mum and a friend) and she always had to precede the times when it was better to take a break or worry if everything went well for our crew! If I have one thing to recommend, visit this island with Fujiko and you will fall in love with this island, if it was not the case before your visit! Thanks again to you, Fujiko, for this moment of sharing, Miss Lo

Fujiko:

Hi, Laurence Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review of the Shukunegi tour! It was a lot of fun for me and I was motivated to re-study French seriously! I really enjoyed sharing a memorable time with your mom, her friend and you. Please visit in March next time to taste oysters!! Merci and arigato:) Fujiko

“ Fujiko showed us the authentic Sado ”

The day was fantastic! Fujiko understood exactly what kinds of things we would enjoy, and introduced us to many interesting people! She knows everyone and told us all about the history and about living on Sado today. We were looking for a specific bamboo basket, and Fujiko found a basket maker craftsman with a huge warehouse of baskets. We found exactly what we were looking for. Fujiko is fun to be with and her English vocabulary is impressive.

Fujiko:

Hi, David san Thank you very much for writing such a rewarding review of the tour! I was happy to find the right person for you and you could get what you've wanted. I'm sure you've enjoyed the rest of the days in Sado. I saw the local TV show and enjoyed it very much! Please stay healthy and happy and enjoy visiting beautiful places you've not discovered yet in Japan. ありがとうございました。 Fujiko

“ Falling in love with Sado! ”

We had a wonderful 2 days with Fujiko-san at Sado and completely fell in love with the island and its locals. Fujiko-san speaks perfect English and is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Sado and the locals (seems like she knew everyone on the island). Everything was arranged impeccably down to small favours of arranging for a bday dinner for 2 of our companions. Her food choices for the “greedy” Singaporean palate were completely on point, whether it was a lovely Japanese set lunch in an old Japanese Inn or a quaint pasta shop in the middle of old Shukunegi. Fancy a coffee and freshly baked pastries from a baker who was trained in New York? Fujiko-san knew them all! We were genuinely sad to send Fujiko san off on the last day... we can feel her love for the island ve... もっと見る

Fujiko:

Hi, Wei san Thank you very much for writing such a heartwarming review of the tour. I know I'm getting older and have become absent-minded, but guiding such a wonderful people like you makes me happy and motivated!! Yes, there are more to discover in Sado and I'm really looking forward to seeing you again with your best friends. また あいましょう!! Fujiko

“ 5 Hour Sado Island Tour ”

Due to our schedule, we were only able to do a 5 hour tour in Sado Island. Fujiko was very accommodating to make sure we got to tour sites that we wanted to cover on such a short period of time. She advised & shared her ideas of the limitations of a 5 hour tour. Fujiko is very knowledgeable about Sado & it’s history. She speaks English well & has great communication skills. Also, she kept in contact w/ us prior to the trip & informed us of the weather & tide condition of the day before the tour. She was very pleasant & comfortable to be with throughout the tour process. We highly recommend Fujiko & would request her tour guide services again!!!

Fujiko:

Dear Jean Thank you so much for writing a review of the tour so quick! Yes, it was a relatively tight tour because of the ferry schedule and also Sado is big and sightseeing spots are scattered on the island. Anyway the weather was nicer than expected and we could visit places on your bucket list! One of mine is visiting your country in a few years!! Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Mahalo:) Fujiko
