Hi! I'm Miwako, a national licensed English-speaking tour guide. Miwako literally means beautiful Japanese child. But please call me Olive! I have a funny story why I’m called Olive, which always makes foreign tourists laugh. If you have a chance to join my tour, I’ll tell you about the reason.
I was born in Osaka, raised in Hyogo, temporarily lived in Kyoto when I was in University, and now am back in Osaka.
I'm familiar with a lot of sightseeing spots, fashionable shops, restaurants of all types, and hidden gems due to my high curiosity.
Also, I love to make foreign tourists laugh. My guests always comment on how funny I am. I promise to provide you with a fun tour.
I’m also working as a writer. I take pictures of my interviewees and several locations. Please look forward to memorable pictures as well! The photography fee is included in the tour. Don’t hesitate to ask me for a picture.
Thank you for reading my profile page♪
