Dohoku Diary

Dohoku Local - Hello

My name is Hattie and I'm the creator of Dohoku Local!

I am originally from the UK and I have lived in Hokkaido since 2019. After some time spent working at the local tourism association, now I am a freelance interpreter, translator and experience leader in the town.

"Dohoku" means "north Hokkaido" in Japanese. This region is very important to my heart and I began operating experiences in the hope that I could introduce this region and its people, the Dohoku locals, to visitors. After joining me for an experience and meeting some of the people in this lovely part of Hokkaido, it's my hope that you'll come away feeling like a Dohoku Local yourself!
