TO DO
HOURLY GUIDE

An English speaking guide will give you a short tour providing you with local information that you can’t find in guidebooks! What is the drift ice all about? What’s the story behind the prison? What do you do at a shrine? Why not have a look-see of this town at the northern tip of Japan? From museums to shopping or just a drive around the wheat fields, I can take you around to your request.
