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.

Hokkaido Tour Guide - Akira M.

Japan

Hi, I'm Akira, please call me Aki. I am a Hokkaido native, born and growing up near Hakodate and National Government licensed guide interpreter. I used to be an elementary school teacher until retirement. I've been to the U.S twice to study the American educational system sent by Hokkaido board of education. I also acted as a volunteer guide in Hakodate city for more than ten years because as a civil servant, moonlighting was prohibited by the authority. After retirement, I started working as a professional tour guide mainly in Hokkaido, but because of the Pandemic, I soon lost my job. So I decided to enter graduate school of Hokkaido University where I studied Japanese modern history. So I am well-versed in Japanese history and culture. I have also learned about tourist spots around Sapporo. I have shown around foreign guests in Hakodate and Sapporo many times. I'd like to promote international friendly relations by entertaining foreign guests by showing them around beautiful tourist destinations in Sapporo because I like to communicate with foreign people. When you have a chance to visit Sapporo, Please contact me and join my tour. I know every corner of Sapporo and its hidden history. I look forward to spending a wonderful time with you. See you soon.

The Best of Otaru from Sapporo

Otaru

A Beautiful City

This was our second tour with Miyuki and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. Otaru is quite beautiful and even more so as it was snowing. We never felt rushed with Miyuki and she was happy to let us look in any of the shops that we passed and even encouraged us to do so. My adult daughter was particularly impressed as other guides have rushed us past shops. We were booked to make glass beads however the shop was not open at the time Miyuki had booked. This did not deter her as she adjusted the itinerary to have lunch and tried to find another venue. We ended up at the original shop at a later time and it was a lot of fun. Our final stop was the sake brewery and after showing us through Miyuki went back to collect our bead creations so we didn’t have to backtrack. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day thanks to Miyuki.

Lynn R.

Thank YOU again. I really appreciate your warm comments for our trip. I can’t thank you enough. I hope you have another chance to come and see beautiful nature in Hokkaido with your family. Millions thanks, Miyuki
