About

Hi. I'm Michi.
I’m a national certificated tour guide in English. I would like to introduce many faces and charms of Japan and make your stay in Japan more fascinated and satisfied.

My specialty is tours of Hiroshima. In Hiroshima, there are two famous World Heritage Sites.
I have experienced many tours of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum & Park since I was a junior high school student. I would like to introduce you the a-bomb legacies that still existing in the city.
I also would like to share time with you in a historic island, Miyajima. There is one of the most famous Shinto shrines, the Itsukushima Shrine.

I also an official ‘A-bomb legacy successor’ designated by the City of Hiroshima. An A-bomb Legacy Successor is a memory keeper of the A-bomb survivors. To ensure that the A-bomb survivors' experiences and desires for peace are faithfully inherited and shared with as many people as possible, the City has started a three-year training program for official ‘A-bomb Legacy Successors.’ It is possible to include my lecture in my tour. It is appreciated that if you could let me know upon your booking.

Let me support your stay in Japan and I look forward to showing you the best of Japan!
Thank you.

“ A great day with Michi ”

We greatly enjoyed our day trip with Michi visiting Miyajima island and Hiroshima. The communication with Michi was excellent from the very beginning. She is a very nice person and we are extremely happy with the trip that she tailored exactly as we asked her to do.

Michiru:

Thank you Boris for your review. I believe that you all will be back to Miyajima after the renovation to see the gate. Hope you have more time in Hiroshima next time. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Wonderful insight into the tragic event... ”

Michiru- san was at the hotel well before time and thanks to her we were able to check in using her mobile phone to get the confirmation email!!!! The tour itself was short but covered all the sites associated with the tragic bombing and her in-depth knowledge helped getting more insights. Unfortunately we could not treat her to a much anticipated lunch , but guided us to a wonderful place where we had okonomiyaki... She gave us all the guidance required for spending the evening and booking tickets for airport bus etc... Dilip

Michiru:

Hi Dilip & Family, Thank you for your brilliant review! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Hiroshima, and my local taste ‘Okonomiyaki.’ Next time I sure recommend you to stay in Miyajima, a gorgeous island. Of cause! After the completion of the renovation.Hope to see you in near future! With Lots of Love, Michi

Michiru:

Thank you for your excellent feedback. It was my pleasure being a member of your group. I was a little bit worried about the weather, but everything went so smooth. I was so glad to hear that you adore my country. We have four seasons, so the scenery looks different in each season. You will never get tired of our country! Hope to see you again. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Great day with Michiru - Hiroshima + Miyajima ”

Michiru was great. We had an amazing day with her. She took care of everything and the communication with her was so easy. We did Hiroshima and Miyajima (day trip from Kyoto) and I can tell you that we would not have been able to see all the things we saw in one day without Michiru. She was so nice and helpful and has great knowledge about Hiroshima Bombing. We were not sure if it was worth it to do a day trip to Hiroshima but I can assure you that Michiru made it worth it and I strongly recommend to hire her for the day trip we did, you won't regret it. Thank you Michiru !

Michiru:

Hi Francois, Thank you for hiring me as your guide in Hiroshima & writing a wonderful review! I’m so pleased to hear that you liked my tour & our local taste, 'Okonomiyaki'. Hope you come back to Japan & find more charms! With Lots of Love, Michi
