Hi, I am Yoko Tabata, a friendly regional Licensed Guide Interpreter. I’ve been sharing beauties of this prefecture with people from around the world. This area is great fun: local, historical, culturally important, sometimes mysterious and beautiful! Let me help you have a day tailored to you. Visit the best places, venues, spots and locations with me. I am a mother of two girls. I’d be happy to welcome families and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please ask. I also translate and teach English. And I am a host of an Internet radio program. I like meeting people and all these experiences allow me to be good at communicating as a guide. I can also guide you around MINO (handmade papermaking which achieved UNESCO status), SEKI (samurai sword making), GUJO (life with clean water), GIFU (traditional fish catching method “Ukai/cormorant fishing” in the Nagara River) and MAGOME-TSUMAGO Trail. I look forward to exploring Japan’s local culture and life with you. Arigatou!
