About the Host
Born in Chiba, Ayuki was brought up in Osaka, and attended college in Tokyo. While studying, she travelled extensively through Europe. After graduating, she began her career at Sony until moving to a British airline as a cabin crew member. For both work and pleasure, Ayuki has travelled to more than 50 countries as well as Antarctica. She found Uzbekistan, Romania and Pakistan very enjoyable destinations, not least because Japanese people seemed to be a great curiosity for the locals. An avid hiker, Ayuki has undertaken some tough trails including Tour du Mont Blanc in the French/Swiss Alps and Milford Track in New Zealand. She has also climbed many other mountains in the French and Swiss Alps, and throughout the Japanese archipelago. For more leisurely forays she enjoys strolling around Tokyo and exploring its myriad neighbourhoods. Ayuki has lead tours for Walk Japan since 2015, and is a licensed National Guide and holds Sommelier and a Sake Diploma.
