Otaru is a wonderful place to visit and Miyuki was the perfect guide. She made sure that we experienced all that we came to Otaru for. She was very sensitive to my family's needs and adjusted the tour as needed. We all had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Angel san Thank you for having me as a guide. I wish we could had more time to see around Otaru. Also more time to Yoichi Nikka Whisky. Maybe next time. Please enjoy rest of your stay in Hokkaido and have a safe flight to your home. Best regards, Miyuki
Miyuki brought us to some of the most beautiful gardens and parks in and around Sapporo. She made sure to show us the best spots for viewing the flowers in season. She was also very sensitive to the needs of my family and adjusted as necessary. As a result we had an enjoyable and relaxing tour. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Angel san I am glad you came just the perfect time to enjoy Sakura, Japanese apricots and other flowers. And the weather was also nice. This season was perfect to walk in beautiful parks. I also had a enjoyable time being with you and your family. Much appreciated. Miyuki
I highly recommend this tour with Miyuki. The arrangements were perfect. She was kind and accommodating. She made sure we experienced as much as we can in Niseko during this time of the year. My family had a wonderful time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Angel san I really had a good time being with you and your family. Niseko is a wonderful ski resort. I hope you will come back to Niseko in winter. Miyuki
Miyuki's knowledge is superficial and lacks substance. She fails to translate to us in English the Japanese answer given in reply to our questions and request for help. She appears to be an amateur. She was first to and was busy taking her own photos with her phone when we arrived at any tourist destination.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wing-Yong san Thank you for having me as a guide. When I read your review, I felt so sad, because you were not happy during the trip. I tried to make you and your wife comfortable and happy while you were staying in Hokkaido. I thought I did as much as I could to make your trip relaxed and wonderful. I have to apologize I booked Airport Hotel, not Air Terminal Hotel. I made a big mistake, but it wasn't intentional. Please accept my sincere apology. Best regards, Miyuki
We availed of 3 days tour with Ms. Miyuki san. She is very knowledgeable about our trip for hell valley, Sapporo city tour and otaru. She is very accommodating to our group consisting of 2 elderlies and 1 kid. She even help us look and inquire for the shop that we're looking for. We enjoyed very much our tours with her. Highly recommend her...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Charnette san Thank you for having me as a guide. Thank you very much giving me many stars. I am glad you enjoyed trip in Hokkaido. I also enjoyed being with you during the trip. I hope you will come back to Hokkaido and see you again. Best regards, Miyuki
Edee SchoenbergerUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Miyuki. She was waiting on time at our hotel for us. She is very pleasant to be around, very knowledgeable of the Sapporo area and shared a lot of information about the places and areas we visited. She modified the tour to take us to places we wanted to go see. The Chocolate Factory was wonderful! The Olympic museum with all it's winter sports simulators and ski lift ride to the top of the downhill ski jump, with its observation area looking out over Sapporo, was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Edee san Thank you for having me as a guide. And also thank you for giving me many stars. I hope you had a wonderful time in Sapporo. I enjoyed being with you during the trip. Hope to see you again in Hokkaido. Best regards, Miyuki
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having me as a guide and giving me five stars. I really enjoyed being with you. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Hokkaido. Come back again!! Miyuki
Miyuki-san was a wonderful guide. She spoke English well and she was very accommodative to my group's wishes. She contacted me a few days before the tour to suggest the activity of making glass beads which was later enjoyed by my group. I highly recommend Miyuki-san as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Irene san Thank you for having me as a guide. I had a wonderful time being with you and your family. The roads in Otaru was very slippery. I am afraid that it took time to move from one place to another place. But still I hope we had a wonderful time in Otaru. Thank you for giving me many stars. Come back again to Hokkaido. Hope to see you in the future. Best regards, Miyuki
Miyuki san is responsive in communications prior to the booking. This is not always the case - I was frustrated with the slow response of another highly rated guide in Hokkaido that I did not end up booking. Six of us had a customised tour and a private vehicle. She showed great attention to detail and understood our unique needs, and is always observant and helpful, ensuring the temperature of the car is ok, having a stool to step down from the car. Exceptional guide that we would readily recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Siong san Thank you for having me as a guide. I really enjoyed being with you and your family. I could learn a lot from your responses. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Hokkaido. Best regards Miyuki
We had a great time with Miyuki travelling around Sapporo and Otaru. She was really patient and informative. Her english is excellent so we didn't have any problems in communication, both prior and during the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sylvia san Thank you for having me as a guide. Thank you for giving me thoughtful comment and many stars. I hope all of you had a good time in Otaru & Sapporo. I really enjoyed being with you. It was very cold day, especially at night. But I am glad we can enjoyed colorful illumination in Chocolate Factory, Odori Park and Munich Christmas Event. Hope to see you again. Thank you. Best regards, Miyuki
Very good and well managed private vehicle tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ajit san Thank you for having me as a guide. And thank you for giving me many stars. I hope you had a wonderful time in Furano and Niseko. Hope you would come back to Hokkaido again sometime. Best regards Miyuki
Patricia MurphyUnited States
This was an excellent tour. Miyuki was wonderful.... informative, helpful, and responsive to our every need. I felt as though I had been in Japan for days because she was so thorough. Totally enjoyed it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Patricia san Thank you for giving me many stars. And thank you for having me as a guide. We were so lucky, everything was perfect. I enjoyed being with you and your friends. Say hello to everyone! Best regards Miyuki
Deane ArakakiUnited States
Miyuki went above and beyond what we thought she was going to do for us. She was very knowledgeable with Otaru, Sapporo and Hakodate. Even though she was not our guide for Hakodate, she made sure that our JR tickets were purchased and showed us where to catch trains and subways. We are grateful for all that she did for us and will recommend her services to all of our friends in Hawaii.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU for having me as a guide. I really had a great time being with you all. And thank you for a nice gift from Hawaii you brought all the way from your home. Have a wonderful time for the rest of your trip. And come back again to Hokkaido. Miyuki
This tour was awesome!! Miyuki is a fantastic guide and chose really great sights for us to enjoy. The Lake Toya area is beautiful and well worth visiting. We highly recommend her and hope to tour with her again in the future!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Michelle san Thank you for giving me a lot of stars. I hope you didn't have any problem with a rented car. I am glad you and your family enjoyed the tours. Say hello to your wonderful family. I hope to see you again in the snow festival. Best regards, Miyuki
Miyuki is a fantastic guide. She is very courteous, speaks great English, knows the local area very well and was particularly great customizing our tour to ensure our kids had fun. We definitely plan to tour Hokkaido with her in the future. We recommend her very highly!
Poh Gaik ChooMalaysia
Miyuki san is a excellent guide. I will not hesitate to recommend her to my fren who are visiting hokkaido in future. Lake Toya is so peaceful as we drive around the Lake. Going up Mt. Usu and the hike up to the top to view the crater and look out to the Pacific Ocean was satisfying. Ainu village was interesting. Picking cherries was so enjoyable and we can eat to our heart content.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Leanne san Thank you for having me as a guide. And also thank YOU for giving me a lot of star. Now I am face book friend with your sister, so you would see my tours in Hokkaido. Please come back in winter next time. Best regards, Miyuki
Poh Gaik ChooMalaysia
We are very satisfied with the arrangement made by Miyiku San. her timimg was right on the dot to pick us up . We pass the patchwork road, stop and took photos at strategic spots. Miyuki explained very clearly in excellent english that we can follow easily. She made good recommendation on choices when we needed to pick our options. The flowers in Furano was picture perfect. I will not forget the melons and the melon bread that we had near Farm Tomita.
Alan TamashiroUnited States
Miyuki was very professional in her preparation of her tours. She customized our tour to include Youichi to visit the Nikka Factory. We enjoyed Miyuki's friendly personality and her local view points on the tour. Miyuki-san, Domo arigato gozaimasu
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Alan san Thank you and your wife for having me as a guide. And also thank you for giving me a lot of stars. I am sure you enjoyed the rest of the tour in Hokkaido. Please come back to Hokkaido in winter next time. Best regards, Miyuki
Glenn SatoUnited States
Our group of five had a great time with Sapporo guide Miyuki. We took the Noboribetsu tour but modified it with a visit to Sekisuitei Onsen so we could experience Kashikiri Buro (private baths) Miyuki made the reservations and we were not disappointed. It was great! The Noboribetsu tour also took us to the Aquarium, Jigokudani (Hell Valley) and Date Jidai Mura to see the ninja and oiran shows. Miyuki also went out of her way to make reservations for us at a sushi and seafood restaurants. Top notch!
Miyuki's love for Hokkaido can be seen on how passionate she is in our tours and how accommodating she is in our request even help us book some Michelin Star Restaurants for dinner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate you to give me many stars. Next time, why don't we go hiking. Please say hello to your wife. Takinoya in Noboribetsu, Daiichi takimotokan in Noboribetsu, Kuramure near Otaru, Korakuen near Otaru, those are good hotels or ryokans. I didn't mention it, but Zaborin in Niseko is NICE too.
If you really want to see the beauty that Hokkaido has you have to try this tour it was amazing! I haven't seen such wonder in a long time. Thank you Miyuki for bring us there it's really worth every penny... :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a beautiful & wonderful day. The flowers and everything were so perfect. We were so lucky we didn't have rain.
The tour with Miyuki San was a nice, she was very patient with us and accommodating with our request. Me and my wife had a wonderful time at Sapporo. Anyone who will want a private tour in Sapporo should try her services... :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much having me as a guide. Next time, I will looking forward to meeting with your children.
Lynn RoachUnited States
The coastal tour I took with Miyuki was the highlight of my amazing trip here from the USA. Miyuki's English was great and her knowledge superseded my expectations. She knew of folklore stories, and had answers for everything asked. The tour was beautiful. Mixed with culture and history in both Otaru and the distillery. We hiked along the breathtaking Shakotan Peninsula and Camp Kamui. The drive felt shorter than it was because of how much you see along the way. Miyuki and her knowledge is a treasure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Lynn san Thank you very much to have me as a guide and also gave me a lot of starts. It was a wonderful day yesterday. I enjoyed every moments being with you. I hope you will find a place where sells ceramic tools. Have fantastic days in Tokyo with your husband. And have a safe journey returning to your home.
Kiyoshi OnoUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tours with Miyuki. She bent over backwards to accomodate our requests and often went above and beyond what we expected from a tour guide. For example, she recommended and made reservations for us at several restaurants in Sapporo and Otaru, and they were excellent. Miyuki also laid out some alternative activities to do beyond our time with her. Hokkaido is a beautiful island and travelling with Miyuki made it that much more pleasurable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Ono san. Thank you for coming to Hokkaido all the way from Hawaii. I assume everybody had a good time in Hokkaido. Also thank you for giving me many stars. Please come again!! Thank you, Miyuki
Kiyoshi OnoUnited States
After two days with Miyuki I, we became accustomed to her great service and attention to detail. During our visit to Otaru, Miyuki took us to the stores that we indicated interest in, and others that we hadn't heard about. For lunch, she took us to a sushi restaurant that was off the beaten path that we will remember for a long time. It was delicious. Miyuki made sure we saw the Snow festival lights along the canal and the special light display made by students closer to the train station. Thanks, Miyuki
Kiyoshi OnoUnited States
We asked Miyuki to take us on the Chocolate factory tour, followed by the Wholesale fish/crab market. Using a one day transportation pass, she guided us to both sites, explaining their background and history. Of course the tour's highlight was eating fresh Hokkaido seafood at the market, where we bought omiyage for our friends and family back home. Miyuki then took us back to Sapporo Station. Miyuki's servic didn't end there. She made us reservations for teppanyaki dinner at Cairn Annex in Susukino. Great
Kiyoshi OnoUnited States
We asked Miyuki I. to spend our half day with her giving us an orientation of the Downtown Sapporo area and the two sites of the Snow Festival. She took us from our hotel to Odori St and Susukino via the underground walkway and subway. Along the way she pointed out the best places for Sapporo specialties. Mikuyi made reservations for an amazing Hokkaido crab lunch at Kani Honke, where we had a multi-course meal featuring imaginative uses of hairy crab and king crab. Miyuki's expertise served us well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for giving me so many stars. I hope your wife and boys are doing great. Now I have a tour for Furano and Biei to see beautiful flower gardens in July. And in winter there is a tour to see Ryuhyo (drift-ice) in Abashiri. And new Michelin stared restaurants were issued. Why don't you come to Hokkaido to see lavenders nest year? Mid July is the best season to enjoy many kinds of flowers. Best regards, Miyuki
Miyuki was a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. She was very flexible and tailored the tour to our requirements. Her English is flawless. We had a most enjoyable day with her. Miyuki wss exceptional.
