About

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.

“ A day for reflection ”

Chiruzu is delightful! We were made to feel at ease straight away. Out tour consisted of the A - Bomb Memorial and Miyajima. Whilst our day started out sombre, by the afternoon Chiruzu was laughing at my husband’s terrible jokes. It was a great way to reflect on differences, history and similarities. Chiruzu has a lovely manner and we were very grateful to have her as out guide. She is very knowledgeable, thorough and funny! We highly recommend her. Thanks you Chiruzu for such a lovely day. We sincerely hope that we get to meet you again.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much your review so quickly. I'm happy to receive lots of compliments with high evaluation. I felt like I was traveling with my old friends because I enjoyed the story you told me about your family, pets, job, work shop, and so on. I was also impressed by the pictures of your art works you showed me. Thank you very much for sharing wonderful time with you. Hope to see you again.

“ Amaizing day ”

Thanks Chizuru For making our day in Hiroshima and Miyajima such a wonderful day. The "tips"that you gave us about visiting Naoshima were great help and make our self day trip easy to manage. It was great privilege to meet with you. Anna and Gadi

CHIZURU:

Hello Anna and Gadi, Thank you for the review with high evaluation! I also had a wonderful day in Hiroshima with two of you. I'm glad to know that you managed to visit Naoshima, the island of contemporary arts by yourself. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip, take many many pictures and make wonderful memories of Japan. Chizuru

“ Delight and satisfaction ”

我々はモスクワから来たロシア人の3人のグループですが、千鶴さんとお過ごしした2日間はとても良かったです。偶々英語より日本語の方が出来て、日本語で案内をするのは依頼しました。そうして倉敷と直島を観光で見てきました。どれで快適なスケジュールで充実した観光でした。説明が分かりやすく、面白かったです。千鶴さんの人間的なカリスマにも感激。千鶴さんのような知識深い、経験の豊富、コミュニケーションお上手なガイドさんはいるのがとても助かります。安心して、誰にでも推薦することが出来ます。千鶴さんをご紹介したTriple Lights もどうも有難うございます。

CHIZURU:

今回日本語でのガイドという事で気持ち的にはとてもリラックス出来ました。タチアーナさんの素晴らしい日本語力でコミュニケーションも十分に取れ、皆さんの要望に十分にお応えできたと思います。私自身、同行の旅行者のような感じで、一緒に楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。皆さんが安心して楽しく観光ができたという事がガイドとして何よりもうれしい言葉です。有難うございました。

“ Charming and super efficient ”

We cannot thank Chizuru enough for our wonderful 2 days on Naoshima Island. She communicated with me quickly , suggesting the best options for our visit. She meet us in Okayama on day one with a big smile ,and a schedule for our 2 day visit, which covered all we wanted to see and more. There is no way we could have negotiated the islands local buses, museum and resturant open times without her efficient guidance. Chizuru is delightful company and a wealth of knowledge about the Island , its history ,and Art works.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much for the tour review with lots of complement. I also fully enjoyed that two-day tour with your wonderful family. I'll never forget that beautiful sunset. I'll have that tasty special coffee we enjoyed in the morning whenever I go to Naoshima. I pray for your family's good health and happiness. Chizuru🎼🗽🛳️🚄🌺

“ Naoshima?Art and the Inland Sea ”

My wife and I had looking forwRd to seeing the architecture of Tadeo Ando and the contemporary art installations of leading artists in those buildings. Our trip was fantastic and Chizuru did a marvelous job of showing us all of the most interesting installations and helped us understand the marvelous integration of Ando’s buildings, courtyards and galleries with the art installations. She is very knowledgeable about the work and architecture and quickly understood our interests and depth of knowledge and was able to tailor the day to make it most interesting and rich for us. The ferry ride to the island in the Inland Sea (Seto) was also a highlight. The jagged islands, peering ghost-like out of the mist in the morning and more substantial at the end of the day we’re so beautiful. As we w... read more

CHIZURU:

Hi Drew, Thank you very much for the tour review with lots of fabulous words. Your sentences remind me of the pleasure of the trip. I'm very happy to know that you and your wife were fully satisfied with the Art Island and a beautiful nature including Seto inland sea. I wish you will come back to Japan and I'm looking forward to seeing you again.
