I am a "Dosanko" ("Hokkaido-ite"). Recently, Hokkaido has been attracting more tourists from all over the world. Hokkaido is a unique place because of its uncommon history, Ainu culture, and rich natural environment. Growing up in Hokkaido, I didn't appreciate the winter so much. However, when I moved from Hokkaido and lived in the Tokyo area for a year, I recognized that I missed the snow and clear cold air. Now, I appreciate living in such an attractive area through my job as a tour guide.
I myself like travelling overseas and domestically throughout Japan. All these trips have inspired me to discover the uniqueness of each country and area. Just as I have experienced, I would like to assist my guests in having fun and gaining nice memories through their visits to Sapporo/Hokkaido.
In addition, I like to look for new and trendy restaurants or confectionery shops. Since Hokkaido is blessed with high-quality ingredients, you can enjoy delicious local specialties. I can introduce interesting restaurants and taverns.
I am looking forward to sharing enjoyable tours with visitors to Hokkaido and Sapporo!
