My name is Akiko, national licensed English-speaking tour guide. I'd be happy to help you in your adventure in Japan. I love traveling myself, and I actually traveled extensively in the world and also within Japan. I am interested in history, archaeology, and culture. So I believe I can be good company as well while being your guide. I love to meet new people because there is always something new to learn from them. And I enjoy learning new things.
I was born and raised in the city of Hachinohe in Aomori Prefecture which is located in the northern tip of the main island Honshu in Japan. I lived in Tokyo and worked with Americans for 30 years, and recently moved back to my hometown where I belong.
I can offer you a tour in Akita and Iwate as well. There are so many interesting destinations in Japan. Please come and visit Tohoku (northern Japan) where you can enjoy Japanese real local life and people. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
Thank you for paying your attention on Miwi's tours.
I am a tour guide with national licence of guide interpreter, especially good in Akita. Akita is a prefecture locating south next to Aomori the north tip prefecture of Honshu the main land of Japan, and is facing to the Sea of Japan.
The word Akita may reminds you of DOGS or the Vatican admitted MIRACLE STATUE of St. Mary- Our Lady of Akita-, but there is much more here. The Shirakami Mt. range, the world natural heritage, unique folklores NAMAHAGE the God's messengers-UNESCO stated world intangible heritage-, classical bear hunters MATAGI, beautiful view of the Sea of Japan at the sunset, rice field of world famous label Akita-komachi, sake the rice wine, festivals, various fruits, and so on that I would never end writing up here. Oops! I almost forgot to mention the Samurai Houses district Kakunodate and the Japan Deepest Lake Tazawako!
I am a lisenced Namahage Missionary which means I can tell you a lot about the Akita local lives.
I was not brought up in Akita nor Tohoku the northern area of Honshu mainland of Japan, but have lived here over 13 years. I was brought up in Tokyo and moved here unexpectedly (because of my husband's job). I totally had no idea about Akita nor Tohoku before then. I am proud that I have the view of an etranger and I can show you what you would be interested in. Tohoku has everything you would expect to Japanese local and classical lives.
Please visit Akita and Tohoku area. This area is not well known to the outer world than its residents yet.
You explore Akita and be the pioneer of this region with Miwi.
