My name is Yuichi. My guests call me Ichi or Yu.
Ichi means No.1 so I hope it's easy for you to remember my name.
I am a licensed English speaking tour guide.
I was born and have lived most of my life in Hokkaido. I have a lot of experience working as a travel agent and guide. I am sure I can make you enjoy in Hokkaido!
My career is below:

I worked as a travel agent and took Japanese tourists to other countries.
I have visited more than 60 countries all over the world.
There, I was treated with kind consideration by local guides and people.
Owing my good memories in foreign countries I have been thinking that I want to treat foreign visitors same way that I was treated outside Japan.

I taught English in high school and studied how difficult it was to teach and spread English to the Japanese teenagers. Then I developed the dream to be a English guide.

I have been working as an English speaking guide.
I moved to Tokyo and guided my guests in Tokyo.
(Mainly Tsukiji Market & Asakusa)

I came back to Hokkaido and I am working at a travel agency and also as an English speaking guide.
I have had a lot of guests and they all enjoyed my tour in Tokyo.

    Sapporo Private Tours and Custom Tours

    Sapporo Private Tours and Custom Tours The overall experience was a unforgettable and informative trip for me and my family.

    We had very specific instructions for the guide and he handled it very well and was professional throughout the planning process.

    On the day of the tour, He was very professional in planning the day and adjust according to the bad weather, he even made sure we could see the things we arranged and was cheerful throughout the entirety of the tour. Definitely engage him if you want a professional, humble and resourceful tour guide! :)

    Find historical assets and try fresh seafood in Otaru

    Find historical assets and try fresh seafood in Otaru How lucky I was to be able to arrange a last minute day trip to Otaru with Yuichi! He met me at my hotel, took me through the intricacies of theJapanese train system, and proved to be a wonderfully fun companion to explore this historical city with. With his deep knowledge of this seaside town, Yuichi quickly molded the tour to suit my interest in local food, and introduced me to some of the best examples of a surprisingly rich variety of regional offerings — delicate pastries, savory rice crackers, insanely fresh seafood, and what to look for when tasting sake, to name just a few of the delectable things that await you here. Tip: Do taste or purchase for later anything he points out as his favorite — I only regret not following my own advice throughout the tour!
