Hello everyone! My name is Kuniko.
I was born in Okayama (between Osaka and Hiroshima in West Japan), then grew up in Hiroshima and Kurashiki mainly.
I have been living in Tokyo for more than 30 years.
I’m a part time lecturer at universities in Tokyo after I retired from a US company.
I'm a Kagawa Setouchi Local Government licensed guide interpreter.
During long holidays in spring and summer, I love traveling in the Inland Sea district called Setouchi in West Japan as well as historical cities such as Kyoto and Nara.
While I am in Tokyo working as a lecturer, I also enjoy guiding visitors from overseas as a volunteer.
I love meeting people from all over the world.
I look forward to meeting you in Okayama, Hiroshima, and/or Kagawa. and having you learn from what you look and experience in Japan, just as much as I look forward to learning from you!

Kuniko met us at our hotel and confirmed the arrangements we had negotiated before via email. She took us to Okayama Castle by local bus and then to Korakuen Gardens. She was able to answer all our queries and questions...or most of them. We had stored up quite a few from our prior days in Japan. We then had a superb lunch of ramen noodles at a little restaurant before catching the train to Kurashiki. Kuniko showed us all the must see places such as O’Hara Museum of Art, the Ohashi House, The Green Castle and Aichi Shrine. we ambled through theHistorical Quarter and Kuniko told us of the history and important places as we walked.
Hello, Dette san and Trice san, thank you so much for your wonderful review and for visiting Okayama district. I was excited to see you because you are in the same generation with me. I was thinking of how I could make this day memorable to you since I found that you’ve visited major sightseeing sites by your own during your long journey. I’m so glad to know you enjoyed this tour with me and after in Kurashiki. Please come back in other seasons to see different features of Japan. I hope you have a good peaceful time in Seto Inland Sea area.
