About

Hi! I’m a licensed guide living in Kagoshima. Please call me Miki ! Now I’m working as a guide and an interpreter. And I have a certificate for medical interpreter. I love to meet new people.
In my town Kagoshima, threre are abundant nature and places where you can experience unique local culture. My favorite place is Mt. Sakurajima. It’s one of the best active volcanoes in the world. From observatories, you could feel its energy and, moreover if you are lucky, it will erupt in front of you!
If you are interested in history of Japan, here is the right place to visit because..... oops, I’ll tell you the story when we meet!!
I’m very flexible and cheerful. And I’m very happy to arrange a tour for you and customize it according to your request!! So please leave your message to me and feel free to ask me if you have any questions or specific requests before you come.
I’m looking forward to seeing you here Kagoshima!! Can’t wait!!

Miki
