Welcome to Sapporo! We’re thrilled you’ve found us and can’t wait to welcome travelers from around the world.

One of the highlights of traveling is communication with people. However, many Japanese people struggle with speaking English. If you can speak simple Japanese, you can bridge the gap with them. We have prepared 10 ready-to-use Japanese phrases for travel. The guide will teach you how to actually use these phrases for communication with Japanese people during this tour. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the unique qualities and characteristics of Japanese people.

Tours are available in Japanese for language enthusiasts, or in English and Japanese for those focused on travel. We also offer tours conducted solely in English, or the guide would accommodate the tour content or language levels according to the guests.

You can enjoy the chance to blend sightseeing with Japanese learning at your own pace, as our tours are fully private, just for you and your group.

To make your trip in Japan more enjoyable, join this tour first to learn basic Japanese while exploring Sapporo. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
