Akira Yagasaki

He teaches mountaineering classes at a major travel agency in a gentle and detailed manner. Enjoys mountain climbing with 1,000 customers a year.

Mainly for customers who have been climbing mountains for a few years or less, I teach the basics of mountain climbing, such as how to walk in the mountains and how to use equipment, in an easy-to-understand manner. I use my years of experience as a company employee to interact with customers in a polite and cheerful manner. I am also a lecturer for corporate training programs.
My specialties are explaining the topography of volcanoes and getting to know newcomers quickly.
Major overseas climbing: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, and Monte Rosa in the European Alps, Island Peak in the Himalayas, Jade Mountain in Taiwan, etc.
