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.

Chizuru was a great guide for my daughter and myself on a day trip to Naoshima Island. The logistics of getting to Naoshima and then getting around the island via busses were more than I wanted to plan, particularly with a child in tow, so it was great to be able to just relax and let someone guide us. She was also quite knowledgeable with respect to the art/architecture that we saw. I’d definitely recommend Chizuru as a guide.
We met Chizuru promptly at 9.30 am in our hotel lobby. Our day was well organised and the timing of our visits to The Peace Museum and Miyajuma were not hurried. Chizuru speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable. She went out of her way to help us buy some items in the supermarket after our trip. We thank her very much and would recommend Chizuru as a guide. J and K
Hi Kathryn, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I’m very happy to receive it and glad to know that you enjoyed the tour very much. That was the most perfect day for sightseeing. It was a little cloudy day. The temperature was not so high. We enjoyed walking. And any sightseeing spots were not so crowded. Everything went so smoothly. So we could add one more spot. That is a beautiful Japanese style “Migratory garden, Shukkeien” That garden is a place to rest and relax for the people of Hiroshima. I’m glad to see you enjoy one of Hiroshima specialties, Okonomiyaki. Thank you for the wonderful time with you. Chizuru
Thanks for great tour of Naoshima. Your preparation was excellent, and we enjoyed a very smooth, fun tour!
Hi Sandra and Jason, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I'm happy to receive it and glad to know that you enjoyed the contemporary art island very much. That day was nice for sightseeing. We were very lucky. Every spot was not so crowded. Everything went so smoothly as planned. You are a very nice couple. I really enjoyed the tour, too. Thank you for the wonderful time with you. Chizuru
Chizuru was an excellent guide, and she did an outstanding job helping us move quickly and comfortably to and from Naoshima Island by way of the Okayama Train Station, where she met our family on the morning of our day trip from Kyoto. We are a family of three adults, and we only had one day available to see Naoshima. She sheparded us from Okayama to Uno Station, then the ferry to and from the Island. We covered the Chichu Art Museum, the Benesse House Art Collection and the Art District in Honmura. We had lunch at the cafe in the Benesse House. Chizuru was very knowledgeable about the various art collections as well as the outdoor art installations and the history of the island. Her English language skills were excellent, and her friendly and kind demeanor made the trip with her very enjo... read more
Hi Steven, thank you very much for the tour review with lots of complement. I'm happy to receive it. I had a great time with your family. Before the tour you wrote me many times to inform me of your preference and requests. That helped me make plans and look for a restaurant for dinner and so on. I was impressed by your son. He is knowledgeable about the art and artists. I felt happy when I saw your son find and be excited about some artworks by the artists he knows. I appreciate that you spent some time at “ Izakaya” in Okayama and enjoyed the special products of Okayama after the tour. They are “Sawara, Spanish mackerel” and “Hiruzen Yakisoba, noodles baked on the hot iron plate”, which won the Grand Prize in B-class gourmet competition. I believe you enjoyed the whole day in Naoshima an... read more
Chizuru met us at our cruise port and took us to the beautiful Miyajima and then Hiroshima. There was a little confusion at the port on the ships end and she managed to adapt our schedule and we fit everything in that we wanted to see!! Chizuru was very knowledgeable and her English was excellent. It started to rain quite hard while at Peace Memorial Park and she managed to quickly show us the highlights!! Much appreciated by a few with no coats or umbrellas!!! We had a a great day!!
Hi Sandi, thank you for the tour review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour of two World Heritage sites in Hiroshima though unfortunately the weather was not so good. I was also happy to have a very enjoyable time. Thank you for sharing a wonderful time with you.
