Hi! I’m Youki! I’m originally from Misugi village! Misugi is very beautiful, quiet and peaceful Inaka place. Misugi has unique history, culuture and lifestyle. Inaka means the country-side in Japanese. However, Misugi is now facing at extreme depopulation problem. When I was elementary school student, the population was more than 9000. But nowadays, decreased by half, about 4000, in this 2 decades. I want to empower our village by tourism. Because tourism can connect many people and industries. In Straw Marquetry Experience, I'm cooperating with Mr. Moritani who is the professional of Straw Marquetry. In Ise Honkaido pilgrimage walks, I will guide by myself. I have more than 10 years experience of guiding customers.
