‘Tohoku Trails’ Travel Talk
Rewatch one of our most popular online travel talks below where our team of Experts in Japan Travel discusses our brand new Tohoku Trails small group tour.
Guest Speaker: Yohei Sato, Unique Japan Tours
Yohei Sato comes from Fukushima prefecture in the Tohoku region of Japan. He has several years of experience in the travel industry and has a deep pride in the cultures and customs in Tohoku. He was thus the perfect person to put together this new Tohoku Trails small group tour. A history fan, Yohei has studied the rich samurai history in Tohoku. He believes many elements of samurai culture are well preserved in the modern-day culture in Tohoku, especially within the farming communities. Join Yohei to learn facts like how children in the Aizu area (featured on this tour) still taught the 7+ samurai rules as part of compulsory education in schools.
Guest Speaker: Andrew Clarke, Unique Japan Tours
Andrew has lived in Japan on and off since he first moved to Tohoku in 2004. He has been producing travel videos featuring Japan and writing travel blog posts for many years. He has experience as a tour leader in Japan and has traveled extensively around the Tohoku region whilst living there himself. Join Andrew as he introduces his former home city and the highlights of the Tohoku region that feature on this tour.
Guest Speaker: Junko Hamilton, Japanese Cooking Instructor
