About

Hello, I am Michiko , the same name of Japanese Empress. I am a government certified tour guide.
I have lived in Nagoya ( located between Tokyo and Osaka) for 35 years since I got married.

I worked for JAL as a flight attendant in my 20's. After retiring JAL, I have taught English and Mathematics to junior and senior high school students for 20 years.

I love traveling very much both domestically and abroad and enjoy walking around each city and talking with local people so that I can find out the way how to they live and think about their life. It's quite a fun for me. I also love hiking and mountain climbing in spring, summer and autumn, and skiing in winter.

In the countryside of Japan there still remain those farming and fishery villages where people have been rooted in their land and community, living the way handed down from generation to generation.
You can also enjoy the original Japanese landscape there.

Why don't you get out of the hustle and bustle of your busy life and have a rest rich in nature in the rural Japan enjoying beautiful scenery and local food.

I'm waiting for you!

“ Michiko and our tour to Shirakawago ”

Michiko was a very good communicator and joyful to be around. Her easy going personality made our trip even more pleasurable. She was informative, organised and knew exactly where to go for views at Shirakawago and also where to eat! She was very helpful as my husband and I travelled with 2 young children. She was very kind and I highly recommend her for a tour. She is highly knowledgeable and we ask many, many questions!

MICHIKO:

Dear Joanna, Thank you very much for having chosen me as your tour guide this time and written a fine review for me. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed yourselves yesterday in Shirakawago. I also had a great time being with such wonderful people like your family. I hope you will continue your trip in Japan joyful and safely. Let's keep in touch!! Thanks again. Michiko

“ Shiragawago & Takayama ”

Lovely tour with Michiko who is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and history. Her attention to details (booking lunch place in advance so we can be seated immediately amidst the tourist crowd, checking out points of interests before the tour to make sure everything is in order ...) clearly shows her enthusiasm and effort in making your trip as enjoyable as possible. Thanks very much, Michiko, for the fascinating tour!

MICHIKO:

Hi Ivy, Thank you very much for writing fine review for me. I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the tour and I could be your help with making the tour to Shirakawa-go and Takayama. I also had a wonderful time with Kwan family during the tour. Thanks again. Michiko

“ Great fun with the family for our first ski trip! ”

Michiko-san has provided us with an excellent experience from the moment we inquired with her on the possibility of a ski trip for our family where we have no prior experience. Upon understanding our requirements and status of the family (we had 2 young kids under age of 6) she actively checked with the various ski-resorts/slopes and came back with several suggestions coupled with her recommendations. Upon the confirmation Michiko-san constantly updated us on the latest status of the ski-slopes and its suitability until it was 1 week before our trip where accurate weather forecast is available. On top of the information on the ski-slope Michiko-san also provided information and assistance on some of the equipment and items we needed for our trip. On the day of the trip, she was on-ti... read more

MICHIKO:

Dear Adelene and all KOH family members, Thank you so much for writing a fine review for me and having chosen me as your tour guide today. I am very glad to know that you were satisfied with my management before and during the tour and enjoyed skiing. Above all, I was so delighted with your two little kids did ski quite well for the first challenge! It's so surprising!!! Your kids are genius for skiing!!! My son and I also had a wonderful time sharing with your family and the ski tour this time became memorable one for us. Thank you very much and I appreciate your kindness and generosity. Take care and enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan! Hopefully we can keep in touch. See you next time in Singapore. Fondly, Michiko
