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.

“ Time well spent ”

Chizuru is an amazing and energetic guide - very familiar with the area, she made sure that I got the most out of both Naoshima and Kurashiki. She's thoughtful and sets the pace according to what suits you, which is perfect. She's well informed and gave me all sorts of interesting nuggets of information which I really appreciated. Would highly recommend you choose to spend your time with her :) Thank you so much!

CHIZURU:

Hi Ananya, Thank you very much for the high evaluation and your complement. I was very nervous when we started the tour because it was the first guide in seven months. But I was able to relax soon thanks to your friendly personality. I feel relieved that everything went smoothly while paying attention to Corona measures. Thank you very much for your cooperation. The spread of coronavirus has not finished yet. Please stay healthy. Chizuru

“ Caring, flexible, knowledgeable and kind ”

The day before we met Chizuru we totally changed what we wanted to do with her as we decided to end the day with a bike ride in the countryside. Not only was she most understanding, but went out of her way to take the train with us to ensure that we found the bicycle rental place, and help us through the process as the bike rental owner couldn't speak English. We were so grateful. She then hurried through some of the other places we asked for, always keeping an eye on the time, but still hitting the highlights and being most informative. She was a pleasure to be with.

CHIZURU:

Hi Joan, thank you so much for your complement to me. I’m glad to receive such beautiful words. I’m relieved to hear that you enjoyed cycling without any problem. You asked me so many questions about Japanese culture, history, people and so on. I really enjoyed the conversation with you and felt that you liked Japan very much. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you! Chizuru

“ We loved our Naoshima tour with Chizuru! ”

My sister and I recently had the good fortune to take a tour of Naoshima with Chizuru. What a wonderful day we had! Chizuru met us promptly at the ferry dock in the morning and whisked us away on an art adventure. She took us to several Art House Project sites in the Honmura district, the Ando Museum, Chichu Art Museum, the Benesse House Museum, outdoor artworks including the Yayoi Kusama yellow pumpkin, and the Naoshima Bath I Love YU. There's just no way we would have been able to navigate that many locations and time it all properly without Chizuru's help. Chizuru is so knowledgeable about Naoshima art and shared so much with us. We really appreciated her generosity, kindness, humor and all of the ways she helped make the day seamless and fun. She rearranged her schedule to meet us... read more

CHIZURU:

Hi Paula, Thank you so much for your wonderful tour review. I’m glad and appreciate to receive that. You also gave me a fortune to be able to join a part of your special trip with your younger sister. I really enjoyed spending a lot of time talking with two of you. I wish you your health and happiness in the future. Warmest thought for Christmas and a Happy New Year! Chizuru

“ Great day with Chizuru ”

We had a wonderful day in Mia Jima and Hiroshima with Chizuru. Her English is excellent and she arranged our tour in a very thoughtful and convenient way, so that we could see as much as possible in the short time we had available. She even was able to take us on a high-speed boat from Miyajima Island to the Hiroshima peace park to save time. We were interested in a particular local dish, and she found a lovely restaurant for us, and ordered the food so that we had a fantastic meal. We particularly appreciated the way she showed us the peace park – her explanations were very thorough, heartfelt, and sensitive. It was a wonderful day and I highly recommend Chizuru as a guide!

CHIZURU:

Dear Molly, thank you for your tour review with a high evaluation and a lot of complements. I’m so glad to receive it and really appreciate it. Thanks to your cooperation, everything went smoothly in the limited time. I also enjoyed the tour with all of you. Thank you so much and I wish your health and happiness. Chizuru

“ Itsukushima Private Tour ”

We had hired Chizuru in Hiroshima because of my mother-in-law who has knee problems, and could not take the tours provided by the cruise company. Without surprise, Chizuru was like the previous reviews, an experience tour guide who has extensive knowledge of the island and the shrine. My family is very pleased with her service.

CHIZURU:

Hi, Bee-Lee, thank you for your tour review with complements. I'm glad to receive it. You were traveling with parents-in law. You supported them a lot. I believe they must have been very happy to have a wonderful time with you. I also enjoyed traveling with your family. Thank you for sharing a good time. Chizuru
