Hi I'm Yuka!
I'm a Japanese native that lived in Chicago for 5 years in my youth and came back to Japan at the age of 12. I studied Japanese culture, especially folklore, in University. My thesis was about Sumo jinku (the songs Sumo wrestlers sing on special occasions) and I reckon the best part of that was to go out drinking with sumo boys :)
I worked as a tour leader for an Australian tour company for 7 years until 2013, and simply loved taking people around Japan, sharing the beauty and craziness this country offers.
