Hi, I’m Chizuru Morofuji. Please call me Chizuru. I’m a government licensed guide and I’ve been working as an interpreter guide for seven years in the area of western and southern part of Japan.
I love my job and I enjoy meeting people from various countries. I have an experience to study in the U.S. for two years. During my stay, local people gave me a plenty of help and kindness. Thanks to their help, I was able to finish my study there. Now it’s time to express my appreciation to people who need help.
I love the word “Ichigo-Ichie、(一期一会)”, which means “Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur”. I’m sure, I’ll do my best to make your experience in Japan the most wonderful and enjoyable one.
Let’s have wonderful time with me! I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.

From the first time I contacted Chizuru she was prompt, professional and efficient. I arranged a a 7 hour tour for 8 of us from our cruise ship. We used public transportation, shuttle bus, street car, ferry and train. She knew the exact routes we needed, went to the window and bought tickets for our group and was alert to the fact that 2 in our group moved a little slower and used elevators whenever possible. (I mention that she saved time buying group tickets at the window as a previous guide had me go to the machine and buy tickets there with a maximum of 3 at a time. Her way was much quicker than my stumbling thru the directions on the machine and foreign currency). We appreciated her explanation of the places we went and then the free time to explore on our own. We especially appreciat... read more
Thank you very much for your review. I really appreciated your help and preparation for a big group trip. I really enjoyed traveling with your group. All of them are very friendly and cooperative. Thank to everyone's cooperation, we could finish the tour smoothly and safely. I'm sure you are a big planner and you will make an another trip plan with your friends. Please have a wonderful time and enjoy your life.
We, a family with two daughters were very enjoyed to have Chizuru to guide us through our short stay in Hiroshima.
Thank you very much for your high evaluation for the guide. I'm also glad to know that your family enjoyed the sightseeing in Hiroshima. Though I worried about the weather in the morning, it got very nice in the afternoon. I also had a wonderful day with your family. I appreciated it. I wish you have a wonderful vacation and a Happy New year!
Chizuru is the perfect guide! She adapts to your time schedule, your interests. She knows a lot about everything you see, she is the perfect time manager to visit as much as possible without putting pressure on anyone and helped us a lot with the travel preparations to Naoshima. We would recommend her to anyone!
Hi Ann, Thank you very much for your mail and quick review. I'm glad to know you and your family enjoyed the island. I appreciate you came all the way to Naoshima from Kyoto. I know you got up very early morning. And you took four trains, ferry, two buses before getting to the main museum, Chichu Art Museum. In spite of that, you said "It was worth coming here." I was very happy to hear that world. Thank you very much. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
With Chizuru as my guide for two days, I was able to fully experience and enjoy Naoshima Island. She greeted me in Okayama and shepherded me from there on in. I didn’t have to figure out transport, tickets, timings or food or accommodations – just fully enjoy the place. Chizuru’s English is very good and we discussed many topics, not just the art and architecture. Having the two days meant that the pace was easy AND we got to see everything. A very professional guide, she is also kind, gracious and generous with her time and her knowledge. Don’t miss Naoshima! One days is better than none, two days are better than one. Highest recommendation for Chizura as your guide.
Thank you for your very generous complement. You stayed at Benesse Hotel. We could spent two full days at the island. Thanks to this situation, I was able to have many first experiences. I could join the night program by James Turell at Chichu Art Museum. It gave me a precious time. I was able to walk into the guest room area which looks simple but very sophisticated. We could take enough time to appreciate many art works in each place. I appreciate that you visited in Naoshima and chose me as your guide. What a wonderful time we could share! Thank you Barbara!
My wife and I had a fantastic time in Hiroshima. We went to the Peace Park, A-bomb dome, and Miyajima. Chizuru was very flexible with the schedule and really showed us a great time.
Thank you very much for your review with a high evaluation. It was a beautiful day. Thanks to nice weather, we took two ropeways to Mt. Misen and we were lucky to be able to see a panoramic vies of Seto Inland Sea and many islands dotted there. I'm glad you could have wonderful time in Hiroshima. I hope you will come back to Japan again.
