What is good about Yuko San is that she is a Japanese licensed tour guide. As what I know of, not many tour guides in Japan are licensed tour guides. As a licensed tour guide, she had to sit in for exam about Japan history, thus she has good knowledge about Japan history and good places to go in Sapporo (she lives in Sapporo). I brought my elderly parents in winter and she hand-held my parents when we walked on snowy roads. She was friendly and helpful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eric sama Thank you very much for your kind comment. Otaru was cold that day but you survived! Fresh seafood in Otaru was superb. I was deeply impressed how attentively you took care of your parents. I was so grateful for my time with you and your family duirng your travel in Hokkaido.

Yuko is a lovely person and was an excellent tour guide. She adapted the itinerary to fit in with the time we had available so we maximised it and were able to see both Otaru and Sapporo. We have teenage boys who absolutely loved her, and she was able to explain everything really well and answer any questions we had. Our day was made significantly better by having Yuko as our guide and the boys missed her as soon as we were in the taxi back to the ship. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather Cunliffe sama Thank you very much for your kind feedback. Your group can walk fast and active so that we were able to visit Sapporo and Otaru at the same time. It was a shore cruise excursion and thanks to good weather, we enjoyed nice view from Okurayama Jump Hill and other landmarks. I was amazed at your sons' deep knowledge about Japan. I am glad that you had a good time in Hokkaido and Japan. Please remember me to everyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ratih Dewijanti sama Thank you very much for your kind comment. It was my pleasure to meet you and your family in Hokkaido especially i learned the special relationship of your family and Japan.

We had a wonderful tour by Yuko! She met us in our hotel lobby and escorted us the train station. We were soon on our way to Otaru. Upon our arrival, we visited many historic areas that were very beautiful and Yuko provided us with a detailed historic account of these places. She showed us the fish marked where we had a great seafood lunch, then we went to the shopping area. Took the bus back to Sapporo and saw the beautiful sights and the streets of town. Thank you Yuko for a great tour!
