Hi, I am Mayu. I can speak English and Spanish (for guiding my Spanish needs to be polished. But I can communicate). I have had experiences as a tour leader for groups of Japanese tourists to foreign countries and foreign tourists in Japan, Tokyo, Osaka. Kyoto, Hiroshima, Kanazawa and many other cities. I live in Hokkaido. My tours are around my city, Asahikawa. But I can customize your plan and take you around Japan. (Please let me know 2 weeks before your plan.) Even if my days are not available on my calendar, I could arrange them for you. So please ask me for availability. I like hiking and cycling. If you are interested in those things, I will make a plan for you. I am looking forward to showing you around Japan. Hola, Me llamo Mayu. Soy guia turistica. Puedo comunicar bien en Español. Pero tal vez no sería suficiente para hacer turismo. Si te gusta que te guie, después de comunicar con usted, será un placer.

I am a licensed tour guide in Hokkaido. I have been working as a guide for about 10 years. I can work in Sapporo, and whole area of Hokkaido. Right now I live in Sapporo ,capital city of Hokkaido. Sapporo is the fifth largest city in Japan with 1. 9 million people. But if you drive one hour or so, you are in the middle of rural area surrounded by mountains and the lakes. So if you come to Hokkaido, it is guaranteed to enjoy urban sightseeing spots and food, at the same time, to enjoy soaking in the amazingly beautiful nature. I can provide you a basic tour, also a customized tour depending on the seasons. Let me help you to create memorable tours that you would cherish for a long time.

I used to be a high school English teacher at the public high school in Hokkaido. I retired from an English teacher 6 years ago and I got a license of the national government licensed guide interpreter. I live in a small city named Abashiri, which is located in the eastern part of Hokkaido island, Japan and very rich in nature. Abashiri is surrounded by natural beauty such as lakes, rivers and mountains. I like to go hiking in the mountains near our city all year round. In spring, we can see beautiful peaks crwoned with remaining snow, in summer there are a lot of alpine flowers, in autumn we can see gorgeous autumn colors and in winter we can enjoy snowshoeing in the small mountains on sunny days and seeing beautiful Okhotsk Sea covered with drift ice. I would like you to enjoy walking in the forests while hearing birds singing. I hope you will have a chace to enjoy some of them. I can help you spend wonderful time here. Abashiri offers you not only natural beauty but also some interesting museums which specialize in northern minorities such as Ainu, Inuit and Eskimo. Also, there is a drift ice museum where you can touch some drift ice in the very cold room (-15 degrees Celsius) even in summer. You will have a great time visiting those small museums.

A wonderful guide for Hokkaido

We had a wonderful time with Kumiko for two days. She showed us around in Sapporo for one day and in Otaru for another day. We not only enjoyed her knowledge about both cities and Hokkaido, but also the conversation and her energetic and joyful personality. She hikes and skies too and can guide you from cities to the mountains in four seasons!

Debra C.

Thank you very much for your fantastic review for our tour.It was my great pleasure that I also enjoyed the conversation with both of you 2, such intelligent and thoughtful persons.And you 2 taught and encouraged me a lot without many words.Thanks again for this precious meeting! Best regards Kumiko

Our van/driver was excellent

Our van/driver came on time, in fact earlier than our 9:00 am meeting. He had a clear sign with my name on it. He was respectful. He was a good and safe driver. The van was clean. Even if we trekked in snow, after every stop, we would return to a cleaned up van.

We’re so grateful that you took the time to leave us a 5-star review. Have a wonderful day!
