Hello everyone, this is Jonah, the English cycling guide at Oasa Mobility Station. With 5 years of guiding experience in this town, I would like to share with you why I love being a guide.

I spent 10 years, from my teens to my young adult years, in the United States, where I learned to appreciate diversity and see beyond cultural differences. This experience has profoundly shaped my worldview, and I feel it's my mission to share this perspective back home in Japan.

As a guide in Oasa, I have the unique opportunity to introduce our visitors to what I call "Untouched Japan." Here, you'll experience authentic Japanese life away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. My tours highlight local gems such as the spectacular view of the town from a mountaintop, the charming rice fields, and delightful encounters with the locals.

One of my favorite memories is guiding a couple from Europe who enjoyed an unexpected summer shower. Despite the surprise, they found joy in the experience, appreciating Japan where even the rain can be a blessing. Moments like these make me realize the profound impact of sharing my home with others.

But it's not just about showing my guests the beauty of Oasa. It's also about inspiring the local community, especially the younger generation. By meeting people from all over the world, they learn about different cultures and see that we are all essentially the same.
