Hello! my name is Maika.
I’m Hokkaido born and raised from a town in Eastern Hokkaido called Abashiri. Abashiri is well known for delicious crab. I moved to Niseko in the summer of 2020 and have been a member of the Niseko Kid’s Club team since then.
Aside from 7 years experience as a childcare worker in Japan, I also had the joy of spending one year in Vietnam teaching at an International kindergarten.
I believe in helping children expand their independence by interacting with nature. I love exploring beautiful nature myself. I have been travelling around Southeast Asia and South America for about three years learning about different cultures and meeting all kinds of people.
I look forward to welcoming you and your children to Niseko!
