Yuka Obitsu (Yuka)

Yuka was born and brought up in the countryside of Saitama Prefecture next to Tokyo. Since her early girlhood she’s enjoyed playing outdoors in nature, which led her to a college of medicine and sport. After graduating from the college, she worked as an athletic trainer for athletes and people in the entertainment industry for eight years. In her free time she liked going out for hiking and walking in nature. Her growing passion for mountain climbing eventually took Yuka all the way to the Down Under in 2018. For a year, Yuka worked as a nature guide on the foothills of Aoraki Mt Cook in New Zealand. She’s recently found her new nest in Furano where she continues working as a nature & hiking guide. Yuka is looking forward to hosting the visitors to Hokkaido and helping them discover the natural beauty of Hokkaido and Japan.
