Trekking Guide

I'm a JMGA certified hiking and ski guide and UIMLA mountain leader. I've traveled more than 50 countries as tour guide of trekking, skiing, cycling tour. I've visited overseas mountains such as Europe Alps, Canadian Rockies, New Zealand, Patagonia. I stayed in Zermatt, Switzerland for 4 years as trekking and skiing guide.

Even I traveled many countries, I also love to walk and ski the beautiful mountains in Japan. We have distinct four seasons, volcanos, hot springs in our mountain areas.
My favorite mountain area is the North Japan Alps, Mt. Fuji and Yatsugatake mountains. Of course sake and tasty Japanese food too!

I hope you to enjoy the nature, culture and communication with Japanese people during your stay in Japan. Looking forward to enjoying Japanese mountains with you!

What people are saying about Yuichi



The climb to the summit of Mt. Fuji was incredible. Yuichi is a great guide with deep knowledge of mountaineering and Fujisan. He provided a number of hiking tips to me along the way as we ascended to the summit. The climb was incredibly arduous since it had snowed a few inches the night before, the wind was at 35mph from the 8th station upward, and it hailed and rained on us all the way down. But…he got me through all of that!



It was a very good experience. Yuichi is a very great guide. Memorable for a lifetime.



Yuichi-san was friendly, experienced, knew the Mt Fuji trails and the region very well, and spoke excellent English. It was a great experience.



As a way to celebrate a milestone birthday, I decided to explore the beautiful country of Japan. A major highlight of this trip was the Mt. Fuji summit hike with Yuichi. It was very evident that he has a wealth of knowledge and experience as a hiking leader. Yuichi communicated in advance to help me prepare for the hike--including suggestions for nearby lodging options--and his knowledge of the trails and environment was impressive. He was professional and personable. If I had more time during this trip I would definitely hire him to explore other areas of Japan.



It was a awesome experience and I can highly recommend climbing Mt Fuji with Yuichi!! He is a very experienced guide, speaks good englisch and tried to give me the best experience possible (due to bad weather we had to reschedule).
