What a delight was Yuko san. She was on time and very kind. She brought us hand, feet and back warming pads as the weather was really cold. She discussed with us the tour for the day and customized it to our needs. Being local, she knew how to get around using local public transport and the history of Hokkaido. Lunch at the Otaru fish market was a delight with fresh seafood! Yum. We had a lot of fun with Yuko san, who was more like a caring mother than a guide. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Saad Ismail sama Thank you very much for your kind comment. We visited Sapporo Snow Festival Tsudome site and Otaru. I was gald you tried tube slide on the snow slide. I was really grateful for my time with you. Now due to prevention of corona virus going around, many snow festivals ended earlier than usual, but I am doing all well and Hokkaido and Sapporo are resilient and we will continue to provide excellent and safe tours to our guests. I wish your continued happiness and good health. Yuko

"Professional, Knowledgeable, Personable, and Caring" would be how I describe our tour guide Ms.Yuko S. She is the best tour guide I have ever met in all my travels around the world. Super friendly and know her stuff and willing to share everything with us. The fact that she used to live in America is a big plus for American tourist. She would go above and beyong to take care of us and making sure that we are happy. I highly recommend Ms.Yuko without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Will sama Thank youv ery much for your kind comment! I had a wonderufl time with you and your group for Thailand. As a native in Sapporo and a descendant of pioneer immigrants from northern Japan, it is may pleasuer to welcome guests from outside and share our life with them. Snow is the letters from heaven and we received many letters in February. Hokkaido has many faces to offer in each season. I hope you will another opportunity to visit here again. I wish your good health and happiness. Yuko

"Professional, Knowledgeable, Personable, and Caring" would be how I describe our tour guide Ms.Yuko S. My family and I (six persons all together) were very happy with her. She went above and beyond to make sure that we get to see everything on our itinerary. We asked her to modify our tour and there was no problem there at all. All you have to do just ask her. We asked her to book our taxi for us to go to a ski resort for the next couple days, done! I would highly recommend Ms. Yuko S.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Will sama Thank you very much for your sweet comment. I was very happy to welcome you and share wonderful experience with you and your lovely relatives from Thailand. Winter was just in Sapporo and I was very pleased to be able to show you around winter beauty and special local winter delicasies here. I am doing alll fine free from corona virus infection. I hope you are all well. Remember me to your family in Thailand too. Please take good care of yourselves. Yuko

Yuko is so knowledgeable about the history of the places we went to, shes very amiable and we hit it off right away since like me she is also a mother of 3 daughters. She paid attention to all of us very well and she made sure we followed our itinerary without being pushy. She is gracious and kind. We enjoyed our day trip with her. I will recommend her highly to anyone

We spent 3 days with Yuko as our guide and can definitely say it was a 5 star+++ experience. To begin my husband exchanged numerous emails with Yuko in the weeks leading up to our arrival. She provided invaluable assistance and recommendations. Her suggestions of hotels, venues, restaurants and where in Hokkaido to visit were all perfect. The sights she took us to see, her wealth of knowledge, her charming, warm and lovely personality proved we found a shining star guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martin and Anita sama Thank you very much for your kind comments. I am hapyy to know that you had a good time in Hokkaido. This year was unusually warm and autumn foliage came later but we were able to witness autumn colors, annual dance event with Japanese cuisine. I am glad that you tried onsen hot springs. Japana hasa many to offer to guests so I hope you will come back to Japan again.

Yuko is absolutely charming and so knowledgable about both Sapporo & Hokkaido. Our day was carefully thought out and was the perfect mix of city & countryside. The pace was just right. We saw a lot of Japan in the following 3 weeks but because of Yuko, Sapporo will always hold special memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael Jardine sama Thank you very much for your kind comment. I am so gratefu for my time with you. We Sapporonians were very happy to host World Cup Rugby matches at Sapporo Dome Stadium. England team was really strong and we feel England rugby team coach has special relationships with Japan. I am glad that you have enjoyed Englad rugby match in Sapporo ! It was a very special experience for me too and Japan has so many nice places to visit, so I wish you will come back to Japan near future.

Yuko was very thorough in her explanation. She went out of her way in attending to our needs. Her English and communication skills are excellent. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to do any Hokkaido tour and wanting to learn more about Japanese culture and history.

If you're going to Otaru Yuko has an amazing tour. Visited Nikka Whiskey, Otaru's Sakamaechi shopping street for shopping and a delicious lunch, and Tanaka Sake Factory. Yuko suggested Otaru Canal after but we were exhausted with the full day tour and headed back to Susukino. She was so nice to accompany us back to our hotel in Susukino. Thank you Yuko hope to see you soon, in cooler weather

Yuko took us to the lavender farms, alpacha farm, and the blue pond. Ms Yuko is an amazing tour guide. We traveled with 5 adults and one adult in wheelchair total of six. Her recommendation to take a private taxi was well worth it. It made transportation to and from very easy. Her knowledge of the sites we visited was very educational. She even offered assistance in other matters not related to the tour. Thank you Yuko

Yuko was a fantastic guide the day we spent with her made such great memories of Sapporo. Yuko's knowledge and love for her home town shone through the whole day, her planning of the day was meticulous, she had organised glass blowing for the whole family and then delivered the items to our apartment two days later. I would highly recommend Yuko and we would have no hesitation in booking her again if we were ever back in Sapporo.

It was a rainy Wednesday morning but Yuko still made our Sapporo tour bright, fun and exciting. She equipped us with umbrellas and took really good care of us. We enjoyed exploring the entire Sapporo with her. Yuko is the best tour guide ever and we highly recommend her.

We highly recommend Yuko as a tour guide. She's very nice and knowledgeable. She shared with us not only the history of Otaru but the entire Hokkaido. Yuko goes out of her way to help us with almost everything - from finding (and even taking us to) shopping places that are out of the scope of our tour, to recommending dining places, etc. Yuko is the best tour guide we have ever had. Looking forward to spending two days more with her.

This is the second tour that my father, wife and I took with Yuko, and for the second time we were not disappointed. Yuko is a great tour guide. Her great knowledge of Hokkaido made the tour very educational. She made sure that were able to see everything on this tour that we wanted. It was like we were traveling with a family member or good friend instead of a tour guide. Someday when we return to Sapporo, we will be sure to book Yuko again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darry Ymamoto sama Thanks to a fine weather, we were able to visit Niseko Pink Moss Garden. It was so beautifurl and you were able to witness amzing Lake Toya, Mt Usu and Noboribetsu as well. I was so impressed by your family bondage and your father's excellent health for his age! I was so garateful for my time with you and for your consideration and kindness. I wish your continued hapiness and good health. Yuko
