Simply Amazing!
May 2019
We were lucky to have Rio as our tour guide to show us Sapporo and Otaru. Rio is very knowledgeable and full of fun. He took us to many great spots and restaurants (including some hidden ones) and everyone in our group thought the experience was memorable and enjoyable.

I highly recommend Your Travel Hokkaido for those looking for a reliable guide and amazing experiences!

Amazing experience!
Jun 2019 • Friends
Friend and I booked this tour and were guided by Rio. He first drove us to Yoichi, and then to Otaru. He was very knowledgeable about every stop we made, knew the best places to buy food and souvenirs, and tailored the experience to what we were most interested in seeing and doing. Not only that, he gave us tips and advice on what to do for the rest of our trip! This was a fantastic experience and if you have a day to do it, you will not regret it!
