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!

“ Best guide during Japan trip ”

We had four different guides in four different cities in Japan, and Keiko was our favorite. Our group spent a whole day with her exploring Miyajima. She met us at our hotel in Hiroshima and then brought us back to the hotel. We had a big group - 12 of us in total - with ages ranging from 2 to 78 years old, and everyone thought she was the best guide. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she was very friendly and patient. Also, she is very organized and a great communicator - I had several questions and we exchanged many messages, and she was always very quick to respond. If you are looking for a guide in Hiroshima, look no further!


Thank you Carolina, it was a great day for me, too!! I love to have a relaxing tour and I enjoyed all the street food tour. Glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour a lot. When you eat oysters, please remember me and Hiroshima!

“ Hiroshima and Miyajima ”

What do I say about Keiko.. She is a lovely person in addition to being an excellent tour guide. She told an immense amount of details and little nuggets without which our experience would have been grossly incomplete. The details of the Itsukushima shrine, the Buddha teample at the top of the hill, the Atom Bomb museum and the survivir stories.. It gave a very real and tangible feel to the visit. we not only asked her about the sites but also in general a variety things about Japan and Japanese culture that she answered with a smile. While she always had an eye on the watch she never once hurried us during the trip.. When we were at Miyajima we ran into one of the families for whom she had been a guide the previous day and the warmth and friendliness wit which the faily greeted her and s... read more


Thank you very much Jayakumar, I feel very honored to have such a warm comment from you. As a local tour guide in Hiroshima, I'm happy that you were impressed by your visit to Hiroshima. Hiroshima is a very important place to think about the way to make a peaceful world. Let's make this sad experience a catalyst to make a better world and let peace bloom all over the world!

“ Great hiroshima culture trip with keiko! ”

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!

“ Couldn't ask for more ”

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!!
