I thoroughly enjoyed the tour to Otaru during my trip to Hokkaido a few weeks ago. I normally do not get private tours, but I am so glad I did this time as I don't think I would have gotten the same experience otherwise. Miyuki is an incredibly professional, knowledgeable, warm soul. It was a long day, but I really enjoyed every part of it, and Miyuki gave me a lot of room to customize as we went, she really went above and beyond. As a girl who's cautious travelling solo, I felt really comfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christina san Thank you for coming to Hokkaido. And thank you for having me as a guide. I am glad you enjoyed my tour. Hope you would come back to Hokkaido and walk with me again!! Best regards, Miyuki
We were in Otaru during a cruise and were looking for a private tour as I am handicapped and cannot negotiate the stairs into a bus or keep pace with a big group. We (2 persons) can only highly recommend to go with Miyuki. She planned the tour according to our interests and we could go everywhere on our own pace and decide how much time we need at one spot. As I cannot do a walking tour, she also organised a car and a driver for that day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Martine san Thank you for having me as a guide. I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Please come again in Hokkaido. Next time, I hope you have time to visit Sapporo. Best regards, Miyuki
Miyuki is very patient and very helpful, she even taught us how to go around sapporo. Every part of Otaru was covered and the last stop (Shiroi koibito) was the highlight for our kids! Would recommend getting her for her patience and knowledge. Next time, to FURANO!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Deng san Thank you for having me as a guide. I am glad you liked the Otaru tour. I also enjoyed being with you and your family. Hope to see you again in Hokkaido. Miyuki

Miyuki was very professional and pleasant, she provided the kind of local interaction that toursbylocal is so renown for, speaking fluently in English, our topics ranged from local trivia to current affairs and history. She is an excellent photographer getting the composition and focus just right on our phone cameras; regretfully we only realized this after the tour and should have capitalized on her abilities more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tji san Thank you for having me as a guide. I am glad you and your family had a wonderful time in Otaru. And thank you for giving me a great feedback. I hope you and your family would come back to Hokkaido in different season. Best regards Miyuki

Had the best time in Otaru. A different experience... and we were just like any of the locals. Miyuki was great with my kids as well. Do not go to Sapporo without this tour. Thank you Miyuki for the wonderful experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary san I really enjoyed being with you and your family. I am glad you had a time in Otaru. Best regards Miyuki
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.

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
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 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
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!

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
