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.

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.
The transportation in a day tour to one of the most important art center in Japan is not obvious. There is one taxi in the island, Ten vessels goes daily from Takamatsu and if you miss them or the local bus your trip to Naoshima will be absolutely not effective. We hired Chizuru and everything went smooth. We visited many interesting unique and hidden spots. Chizuru followed our priorities and offered unknown places from her experience. Lots of photo oppertunities and never missed any transportation mode. She has vast knowledge regarding the island and the art pcs. and artists. So we enjoyed very much her guidance during our day trip to Naoshima and hope to hire her again in the future.
Hi Avi Thank you so much for your tour review. I was surprised and very impressed by your comments because you recognized everything within a few hours that I always keep in mind such as the route, the transportation, the artworks, the artists and so on. I noticed that you were appreciating artworks and taking pictures of them quietly. Now I know that you are used to travel and have a sharp sense to recognize surrounding situation. I’m very grateful your complements. Thank you again. Chizuru
Chizuru is a great guide. She took care of all the logistics so all I had to do was show up. She had a lot of knowledge of the island and it’s art projects. She pointed out details and things that I wouldn’t notice or see on my own. I’m really happy I decided to get a guide for the day. I couldn’t have seen or learned as much as I did without her help. Plus she’s very friendly!
Hi Jenny, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I also had a wonderful day with you. You are so lucky because of a nice weather and less crowded sites. We could go to the most art sites including an artistic shrine building on the top of the hill. It is often deleted because it takes time to go. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. Lastly, thank you for a mail with a picture. Arigatou!
Visited Naoshima during the Setouchi Triennale with her. Not an easy visit, train to port, ferry to the island and bus ride to the sites. One of the museums she had us get tickets before our tour and we're glad we did because it was sold out. Very personable, good command of English and very knowledgeable about the sites and various works of art. Made the art pieces come alive! Arigato Chizuru
Hi John san, thank you so much for the wonderful time with two of you. I appreciated that you allowed my friends to join the tour. They were very grateful for your acceptance. Weather was nice and everything went smoothly even though the art festival is held. I'm happy to know that you love Japan so much. I hope you will enjoy the next visit to Japan. Chizuru
Chizuru was everything we could ask for. Seriously one of the best tour guides I have experienced in my life. First of all, due to an approaching typhoon, Chizuru was able to guide us a day before our scheduled itinerary, on a very short notice. She took us everywhere we wanted, knew when should we rush and when we could enjoy the moments during the tour. She also has great English and thorough knowledge about Japan in general and Naoshima in particular. This made our tour day a perfect day, and we were able to experience and enjoy all of the attractions on the Naoshima island on single day. I wish Chizuru to anyone which comes to the island. Thank you Chizuru!
Hi Yaron, thank you for your review with lots of complement. I also appreciate your prompt decision for changing the tour date. Everything went so smoothly despite the change of schedule. I'm glad to know that you could go to Teshima and enjoyed several artworks there including " Teshima Art Museum" which is totally different from the ordinary museums. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your vacation and I'm looking forward to receiving pictures you took during the tour. Thank you for wonderful time with you, your mom, and Deganit! Chizuru
