I was born and brought up in Sapporo, the forth generation of immgrants to the frontier island of Hokkaido from the main island of Honshu.
I am honored to have an opportunity to introduce our home land, Sapporo and Hokkaido.
I have been engaged in the hotel business in Sapporo as a concierge for years and then I started as a tour guide. I also work as a medical English interpreter mostly for foreign residents in Sapporo.
I can offer standard tours as well as customized tours tailored to meet your needs. In particular my tour includes sightseeing spots that ordinary bus tours do not include but are very interesting places such as a Japanese sake brewery or an ikebana, Japanese flower arrangement class.
Sapporo serves as a flagship base for Hokkaido tourism and a variety of activities as Sapporo is the political, cultural, and economic center of Hokkaido. Hokkaido is treasure trove of tourist attractions: locally grown foods, high cuisine, and dynamic nature. From Sapporo, many many wonderful one-day trips are possible.
I am interested in Japanese history, sports (ski, golf, baseball, etc. ) culture (art, music, flower arrangement, caligraphy, tea ceremony), cuisine and shopping. So please feel free to contact me to plan your travel schedule.
Let me help you discover your own Sapporo and Hokkaido and create memories that wil last a lifetime.
A Recent Review of this guide
Ms Yuko was our guide for two (2) days, 1/31 and 2/1, 2018. Yuko is a super excellent guide. She knows the culture, traditions and history of northern Japan, having been born in Sapporo. She is accommodating, hospitable, friendly, helpful to the max...even providing us with heating pads to counter the cold weather. She even takes our orders in restaurants and serves us like a mother. We have not experienced such level of hospitality and kindness in our travels. Our tour experience is 10/10 with Yuko
