Freelance trekking guide(JMGA licensed), adventure trip coordinator, interpreter guide (English- national licensed), and columnist

I am extremely passionate about nature and love nothing more than spending time in the woods. I fell in love with the wild when I first visited Alaska to coordinate an aurora borealis viewing trip. After eleven years working in the travel industry, in 2007 I moved to Alaska, where I took a backpacking and a mountaineering course of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). There I learned a range of outdoor skills including navigation, route finding, camping skills, leave no trace and ethics. Since then I've spent every summer in Europe or North America as a trekking guide, sharing my summer days with many great people, surrounded by nature.

Spending time in foreign countries and different cultures reminds me of the importance of deepening my knowledge of my own wonderful culture in Japan. It is a great opportunity that I can introduce and share my culture with those who are interested. Japan is a mountainous country, and mountains are intimately connected to our culture.

I hope all who join me will enjoy finding out more about our mountains and history, and how closely they are linked.
