Hi, I'm Ritsuko. I'm a national certified guide.
I was born and raised in Shimane. I have long been living in here.
It is Shimane's abundant natural beauty that brought me back here after living in several other cities in Japan.

Shimane is also well known as the place where a lot of Japanese myths started.
I'd really like to show you around this spiritual and relaxing place with the distinctive culture and history.

I'll help you enjoy every minute of your stay in Shimane. Also, you can tailor your tour trip according your interests.
I'm sure you'll find something new and old about Japan here in Shimane.

See you soon!
