WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD TRY TO BE A GUIDE USING ROOTTRIP?

I was born and raised up in Tokushima. When I went on a trip and did an internship at the outside of Tokushima, I felt good points of my local. And then, I knew RootTrip. I want people to know interesting places in Tokushima. So I registered as a guide.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOU BE IN TROUBLE OR FEEL ANXIOUS?

I was worried whether the guest likes Tokushima, my favorite place, and my favorite tastes, or not.

DO YOU OFTEN GO TO TRAVEL?

Yes I do. My goal is traveling every prefecture in Japan. The goal will be achieved soon

WHAT DO YOU DO USUALLY?

I am working as a part time job relating to Tokushma’s market. I work while thinking there are plenty of delicious food in Tokushima.

WHERE ARE YOU ALWAYS?

I often go to my favorite coffee shop in Tokushima city. When I take a break, I go to many places.

WHAT IS A GOOD POINT WHEN YOU USE ROOTTRIP AS A GUIDE?

Many people think that there is nothing in Tokushima. But my guest said to me, “I want to recommend Tokushima to my friends.” Please come to Tokushima again!!

POST-EXPERIENCE

I visited Tokushima the second time, but there were many things I did not know at all. There are plenty of things such as rice paddy, Oono seaweed, Okonomiyaki with a new crispy texture, and going to Namba at 2,000 yen by ferry. And, above all, I was touched by the feeling of thinking of the guide Tokushima, and I recommend Tokushima to friends who are also awesome. Through RootTrip, I'd like to encourage more people to feel such encounters. Thank you very much.
