Ms. Emiko ABE
National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter:English

I like hiking and taking hot springs. After hiking, taking a hot spring is the best match for me. If you like hiking, hot springs or both, Tohoku provides you with a multitude of options as it has a lot of mountains and hot springs. I’m also interested in the history of castles, temples and so on. Visiting them will deepen your understanding of Japanese history. Please let me help you find your own Tohoku.
