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 was very informative, pleasant, punctual & very accommodating. She helped us store our luggage at the train station & change our tickets for an earlier time on the bullet train. She was always very concerned for our comfort. I would highly recommend her!!
Thank you Jaime, it was a wonderful day for me, too, and I'm happy you enjoyed my tour. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. And when you come back to Japan, you are always welcome!
Keiko was very entertaining and made our tour a day to remember. She was full of facts and fun information. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend her. It was a highlight of our whole cruise experience.

Thank you Aidan, I had a great day with you all, too! Our rugby games were over but let’s see how the other games go :) May sports promote peace!
Keiko was a very professional guide who took us around to the major Hiroshima sites and museums. She was very sensitive to our needs and was very responsive to our questions. She was personable and able to talk about culture, history, and politics - and her own family and spiritual life in Japan. She was quite wonderful, you will be lucky to have her as your guide!
Thank you Robert, we had lots of fun conversation and shared our opinions a lot. It was really a great day for me, too! Thank you again, let’s be small pieces of a peaceful world.
