What is the specialty of this instructor?

Horseback riding instructor


Katsunori Inaba


Katsunori san


I did not intend to be a owner of a horse riding club. I always wish to be a bit of a horseman. I used to teach my students strictly to make them get better, but that often make them unhappy, I realized. I'm more careful and gentle now, as I've got old. I am a class B rider certified by Japan Equestrian Federation, and a certified instructor of National Riding Club Association of Japan.


I seldom meet people who say "I'm fond of horseback riding." It is hard to be engaged in horseback riding, even for fun. That's why I think horse riding sounds cool. Now you have a chance to ride a horse in front of you, there is no way to miss the opportunity. At the tranquil horse riding club in a valley, you can enjoy horseback riding without worrying about other people's gaze. They say, "the paradise on the ground is upon the horseback."

My recommendations

Superb view spots of Shimoda recommended by local guides
Cape Tarai. You have to walk hard to get there. But You must be moved that everything in sight is the beautiful ocean. The sea of Shimoda is all lovely, but the emotion is deeper when you make efforts to get there.
How delicious! Best restaurants to enjoy local specialties of Shimoda
I am often asked "Is there anything cheap and delicious?" But the answer to this question is difficult. Taste is extremely subjective, and its cheapness (?) is also a personal matter. As far as possible, find it yourself, and you will be satisfied in any case.
What is the best word to describe Shimoda?
Shimoda is a very popular place for many foreigners who live in Tokyo area. I frequently see foreigners, here. I do not know if it is due to historical background or its resemblance to their hometown.

This instructor is guiding this program.

If you get into the rhythm.
Horses are smart and faithful.
The ocean is nearby.
