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!!

“ Amazing and friendly guide! ”

It was pleasure to spend our day in Kagoshima with Miki, she was such a well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable guide. She had amazing communication and organisation before the day and was able to answer all of our questions in great depth. And above all she was so friendly and lovely, we had all made such a wonderful friend by the end of the day!


Dear James, Thank you for giving such wonderful review! It’s my pleasure to have a chance to guide you and your family! I’ll treasure your words. Thank you very much. Miki

“ Best guide. Be sure to use Mikiko. ”

Miki is a wonderful guide and I give her the very highest recommendation. Use her as your guide and you won't be disappointed. She has a wonderful personality and is very knowledgable. We have special memories of Kagoshima because of Miki.


Dear BJ, Thank you for review! That means a lot to me. I had a great time with you and your friends! I wish you have a great memory in Japan, and you come back to Japan, Kagoshima again in the near future! Best wishes to all, Miki

“ Best Guide I've Had in Japan. ”

Miki is local to Kagoshima and knows the history of the area very very well. She also serves as a English speaking guide at the Sengan-en Garden (which also houses a museum of Kagoshima). Her communication before the day was excellent and very timely. Her clarity during the day was perfect. If you are looking for a personable, well informed, very competent guide who speaks impeccable English, then Mikiko is your person.


Hi, John! Thank you for review! It means a lot to me!! That’s wonderful time for me to have a chance to guide two of you! I hope you had a great moment on Mt.Sakurajima on that day. And if there is another possibility to meet you again, I’m thrilled to assist you! Please say hello to Luz! Miki

My husband and I had a private tour with Mikiko and she went out of her way to make it special. She was a delight and spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend booking with her. Thank you Mikiko for making our visit wonderful!


Thank you, Denna! And thank you for joining my tour! I'm very happy to know that you and your husband had a wonderful time in Kagoshima. I hope you come back to Japan someday and visit Kagoshima again to have another extraordinary experience!! I'm happy to arrange it to you!
