Guide & Yoga Teacher (Japan)

Mika Saito

Mika is an experienced trip leader and yoga instructor with a background in hospitality and tourism.

Mika was initially involved with RAW Travel as a yoga instructor on our Japan yoga hiking trips. She now also leads some of our guided trips along the ancient and wonderful Nakasendo Way and wants to encourage as many people as possible to walk it! Mika’s friendliness and spontaneity ensures that every guest who hikes with her enjoys themselves.

Before becoming a yoga instructor, Mika worked as an airline cabin crew member in the Middle East. She offers various yoga sessions at a studio in Tokyo and leads private bilingual courses. As an expert in Acroyoga, Mika’s primary focus is partner yoga. She looks forward to incorporating yoga and stretching into her hiking tours, creating a unique and enjoyable experience for all.

Despite her urban upbringing, Mika has discovered a profound joy in sharing the beauty of nature and the richness of Japanese culture with visitors worldwide. Her passion for these experiences is infectious, inspiring others to embrace Japan’s unique offerings.

Mika is looking forward to welcoming you to her Japanese homeland and sharing her experience and knowledge with you on the trail.
