President – Masahiro Yonehana
He’s our boss – but can often be found clearing snow or looking after the flower boxes, so you might not realize who he is! If you see him, please stop and chat. Mr.Yonehana – living his dream to share a love of the countryside with the world!
Loves wild flowers more than gardens, loves open skies more than a ceiling, loves countryside more than the city, so he is at home in nature and loves outdoor practical work more than using brain-power in an office. pss!but recently he’s been using some brain power in the Winkel office!
A mogul skier when he was a student, he set off to explore Asia and Egypt. But he missed snow so much he came home to Hokkaido and now he uses his travel experiences to welcome guests from abroad and share the charms of Otaru with others.
An Otaru native, who loves baseball and skiing. His love of baseball is so great that when his team has a winning season he can be found in his local park celebrating with a private beer shower!
His dreams are: heli-skiing in Canadasaving a lot of moneyand of course – caring for his family.
I’m a professional tennis instructor, so I can teach everyone from beginners to expert. Come and try a lesson with me, your tennis skills will improve and of course the exercise will make you feel wonderful.
