During your visit to Japan, would you like me to show you around my hometown of Hiroshima?
If you are a person who would like to learn about different aspects of Japan and wish to experience its culture on a deeper level, then please join one of my tours. When you finish you will love my city almost as much as I do.
Among the memorable experiences you can have on my tours are: Taste Hiroshima Okonomiyaki, a local delicacy which is a favourite with my guests; Smell the abundant greenery of hidden gorges in the mountains surrounding Hiroshima; See the beautiful sunsets of the Seto Inland Sea; Learn about Hiroshima's tragic past and how it transformed my city into the treasure that it is today.
As a world traveler I have been exposed to various cultures and have lived in the historical cities of London and Kyoto. These experiences along with my professional background as an architect/interior designer have taught me what appeals to visitors from other parts of the world.
I have been a licensed tour guide for past four years. During that time I have guided groups ranging in size from a single guest to over forty guests, and I have given business and school tours. My guests have ranged in age from five to eighty years. In addition to guiding, I also teach English to the employees of the tourism industry.
Allow me to make your visit to Hiroshima a memorable one. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you!

It was a pleasure meeting Aiko and spending our time with her in Hiroshima. We visited the A-bomb Dome, Peace Memorial Museum and Hall of Remembrance, Orizuru Tower and traditional okonomiyaki lunch. Aiko presentation and knowledge was exceptional. Additionally she spent time with each person in our group making sure we all were engaged and enjoyed our time. Wish we had more time to spend with Aiko exploring more of Hiroshima.
Thank you for your kind comment! I am glad that you enjoyed your day in Hiroshima. It was very nice to meet you all and I had a great time too. I hope to see you again in Hiroshima.
Excellent day spent with Aiko. We did the Miyami Island Shrine, a fast ferry trip back to Hiroshima up a water way direct to peace park, a tour of the a-bomb area and a visit to the peace park museum. As well Aiko took us to a local restaurant to sample typical Hiroshima style food and them safely back to our cruise ship. Excellent day with great guide to see a beautiful spot in Japan.
Thank you, Collin. I am glad you liked the tour. It was great to meet you and show you around my city. Please give my regards to your wife and your friends.
