Yuichi K.

Ebetsu-city, Hokkaido, Japan

My name is Ichi, Licensed English speaking guide in Japan, Hokkaido.

I was born and raised in the eastern part of Hokkaido and now I live near Sapporo, capital of Hokkaido.
I have a lot of experience working as a travel agent planning tours, itinerary control manager and English speaking guide.
I am sure I can make you fully enjoy in Hokkaido and even outside of Hokkaido because I have a license of itinerary control manager and visited many places in Japan.
My career is as follows.
2006~2013
I had been working as a travel agent and taken visited many countries with Japanese tourists. I have visited more than 60 countries all over the world. There, I was treated with kind considerations by local guides and people.
Owing to my precious memories in foreign countries, I came up with the idea that I wanted to treat foreign visitors in Japan the same way as I experienced outside Japan.

2013~2016
I had been teaching English in high school and studied how difficult is to teach and spread English to the Japanese teenagers.
I still kept having a dream to be an English speaking guide in Japan. Then, I decided to get the license and became a guide.

2016~
I have been working as an English speaking guide.
I moved to Tokyo and guided my guests in Tokyo.
(Mainly Tsukiji market & Asakusa )

Now
I came back to Hokkaido and I am working as an English speaking guide.

A Recent Review of this guide

Yuichi is a great guide and has a great personality. We hired him to be our driver and guide for Otaru. He promptly picked us up at our hotel and he gave us a tour of various parts of Sapporo enroute to Otaru. In Otaru we saw a beautiful historical home, a glass shop where we could make our own beads as souvenirs, and Sakaimachi street where would could sample wonderful treats. We finished with a visit to a sake brewery. Yuichi is someone you definitely would want to explore Sapporo and Otaru with.
