Yohei is a native of Japan and spent his formative years in both Japan and the U.K. After completing an International Baccalaureate in Oxford, he returned to Japan to complete a BA degree in Communications studies from Tokyo's International Christian University. Subsequently, he pursued a career in IT and marketing with vibrant start-up businesses in Tokyo.
Eager to learn more about his home country's traditional culture and explore it on foot, Yohei did not hesitate when the opportunity arose to join Walk Japan. He started leading tours as a Tour Leader from in 2010, and especially enjoys walks in the Kiso area of the Nakasendo Way.
When not in the office or on the road with our customers, Yohei relaxes as a DJ, creating and playing music in the venues of his home-town, Tokyo. In the winter months he also takes time out to go snowboarding in the great powder snows of Japan's Central Alps.
