Rod Walters
Tour Coordination and Customer Service

I’m from Bristol in England, and I came to Japan in 1990. I’ve lived in many parts of Japan including Osaka and Nagano, but Shikoku is my favourite place.

I always thought it was a shame that so few overseas visitors made it to such a fascinating and attractive region, and so I began working with local travel companies to offer tours specifically for foreign visitors.

Besides planning general interest tours, I'm qualified by the Sake Sommelier Association as a Sommelier and Educator, and I arrange tours, events and courses for the enjoyment of Shikoku's excellent sake.
