Hi! My name is Keiko. I am a nationally licensed tour guide who loves meeting people from different countries and cultures. I was born in Hiroshima and have spent most of my life in my hometown, Hiroshima.
I have been working as a freelance tour guide since 2014. I have a passion and love for my job, with my commitment to make your visit memorable and fun. You will find me friendly, cheerful, flexible and knowledgeable. I love kids and and I am happy to be with them. I love guiding elderly people and I am happy to talk about Japanese history walking at an unhurried pace. Because of my 9-year career as an English teacher at elementary schools, I am good at guiding people whose native language is not English. I can use very simple and easy English in my guiding so that non-native English speakers can easily understand me.
Hiroshima is world famous for its sad memory of the atomic bomb. But at the same time, Hiroshima is a brilliant city where you can enjoy beautiful scenery on Miyajima shrine island, eating local foods and tasting Japanese sake. Why don't you have a memorable day in Miyajima shrine and peace park with me?
I hope my tours suit your interests. Please feel free to contact me for further information. I can customie my tour based on your needs and I will do my best, with Japanese spirit of hospitality, to make your tour comfortable and happy.
Thank you for visiting my profile and I look forward to welcoming you in Hiroshima!

Keiko speaks good english and was very friendly. Shes always looking out for the children and elderly in our group. Our time was very tight, but she managed to give us highlights of the hiroshima history and made our time very well-spent. I highly recommend Keiko for anyone who wants to know about Japan history, she is super knowledgeable!
Thank you Casey, I had a great day with you all, too! I hope your stay in Hiroshima became a memorable one for you all, especially for your children. I was amazed at how carefully they read the explanation in the museum and how intelligent they are. We can be small pieces of a peaceful world. Let peace bloom!
Best decision was to hire Keiko as our tour guide for Miyajima and Hiroshima. She was very knowledgeable and kept our group interested the whole time. Always smiling and very patient with us.
Thank you Jennifer, I had a great day with you all, too. We are neighbors and let's be good friends in a peaceful world! Please say hello to the other members.
Keiko is easily the most competent and accommodating guide I have met. Throughout our tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, she provided very detailed and comprehensive information, and was willing to talk about the very poignant aspects of the atomic bomb attack. Keiko has a lovely fun and bubbly personality, and exceptional English speaking skills. She paced the day perfectly for us, never being pushy about timing which was nice. For anyone planning to hire an English speaking guide, I could not recommend her more highly. She was great!. Thank you Keiko, arigatogozaimashita
Thank you Lindsay, you all were so nice and I really enjoyed the tour with you. The history of Hiroshima is sad but I believe we can make it a catalyst to get a peaceful world. Let peace bloom and please visit Japan again!!
My family and I took a half-day tour in Hiroshima with Keiko. From the very get-go, Keiko welcomed us warmly and talked with us easily, as though she were a long-lost family member and we were catching up. The insightful facts she gave us made us want to know even more about Hiroshima, and she was very patient throughout the whole tour, despite the fact that we often took shopping detours. Thank you so much Keiko!
Thank you Deeani, I felt the same way!! It was really a pleasant day for me, too. I'm glad to know that you were more interested in Hiroshima, which all the tour guides want to hear from customer. Thank you again and enjoy Japan!!
Thank you Mark, I enjoyed the tour very much, too. You were more funny than me! Thank you for the great day.
