Ryoko Vick Kitano

I was born and raised in the mountainous northern area of Nagahama. After graduating from university and working as a translator outside of Shiga, I returned to my hometown in 2020. Nagahama has beautiful scenery of satoyama and Lake Biwa as well as many historical cultural assets and distinct food culture that’s been handed down by local people. I will give you the best information that only locals know. Come and experience the local culture and activities in nature that you’ll never find in the busy cities!
