Nagano, Japan

Hello, my name is Eriko. I have professionally guided people for the past 10 years, and I love connecting people to Japanese culture and the beauty of Japan.

I love Beautiful Nagano! I grew up in Nagano and can give you information beyond and above guidebooks. Once you step into Nagano, you 'll be attracted to its nature, ancient traditions and unique culture that Nagano still preserves. Nagano is not only famous for snow monkeys, hot springs and nature, but also as a city where people here has the longest life span in Japan. It is said that ancient wisdom of fermented food culture like sake and miso are the one of contribution factors.

How about coming to find out secrets of longevity?
How about taking a break from busy cities and come relax in countryside of Japan?
I am happy to custom made your trip.

I lived in Canada for 13 years , having studied healing arts, yoga and fermented food. I have a great understanding of Japanese society and culture, and I'll be your excellent guide and cultural interpreter for your time in Japan to be the best use of. My clients often says that a day in my tour was one of the best day in Japan.

Looking forward to meeting in Nagano from my heart.
