Hi! My name is Saeko. I have been in San Diego, California, USA since 2002. I graduated from a graduate school in San Diego and have a few jobs in San Diego now. One of my jobs is interpreting. I hope that I can help you to make you have a wonderful trip.

I was born and grew up in Himeji city, Hyogo, Japan. I went to University in Kobe and worked in Kobe for a few years. My family still live in Himeji, so I visit my family once or twice a year. Especially I stay in Japan for a couple months during the summer. Both of Himeji and Kobe are my favorite cities to visit. I really want to show my favorite places to share during my visit.
