Hi. I'm Michi.
I’m a national certificated tour guide in English. I would like to introduce many faces and charms of Japan and make your stay in Japan more fascinated and satisfied.

My specialty is tours of Hiroshima. In Hiroshima, there are two famous World Heritage Sites.
I have experienced many tours of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum & Park since I was a junior high school student. I would like to introduce you the a-bomb legacies that still existing in the city.
I also would like to share time with you in a historic island, Miyajima. There is one of the most famous Shinto shrines, the Itsukushima Shrine.

I also an official ‘A-bomb legacy successor’ designated by the City of Hiroshima. An A-bomb Legacy Successor is a memory keeper of the A-bomb survivors. To ensure that the A-bomb survivors' experiences and desires for peace are faithfully inherited and shared with as many people as possible, the City has started a three-year training program for official ‘A-bomb Legacy Successors.’ It is possible to include my lecture in my tour. It is appreciated that if you could let me know upon your booking.

Let me support your stay in Japan and I look forward to showing you the best of Japan!
Thank you.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Michiru. She was informative and knowledgeable and gave detailed descriptions which enabled us to understand the sites and their significance. We would highly recommend her services to others. Cheers Michi San from Pete and Ann.

“ Like a family ”

Michisan is a distinctive guide from those I used to meet in that she could join my group so well that the kid loved her. She always tried to help everything as much as she could, not to let her know. This is really a good trait for the company to gain advantage over competetitors and I am sure that in the future, guiding a tour would change to what Michisan has acted. Please let her know that our group would not forget her, especially her goodness to teach us some Japanese. Recommended.
