Want to sight see in Asahikawa, Furano and Biei but would prefer to be in the safe hands of a Japanese speaker? I am only too happy to help! I am also happy to interpret for any activity or experience unavailable in English. Please note that due to Japanese tourism laws, I am not licensed to provide your transport-- you will need to arrange this independently through a licensed supplier.


(Other Hokkaido Area)

40,000yen per day*

Despite its growing popularity as a tourism destination, English-speaking interpreters are hard to find in Hokkaido. If you would like to travel the region with an interpreter, I offer a special daily rate for multi-day trips in the prefecture.

Due to Japanese tourism laws, I cannot be your driver or organise your transportation or accommodation. This service is merely accompanying you around Hokkaido as an interpreter.

*Daily fee does not include my own accommodation, meals or transport fees (invoiced separately).
