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!

just a wonderful guide! Thoroughly professional, organized, excellent English. Speaks slowly and carefully, easy to understand. Very knowledgeable, totally in touch with the group at all times. Excellent leadership. Terrific itinerary. Would use her skills over and over agian!
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
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 !
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
We highly recommend our guide, Michiru, who was responsible and nice and created a great itinerary for us for the day. We adjusted our plans several times because of not knowing the train schedule, and we appreciated Michi's flexibility in adjusting our itinerary to fit the time we had. From the moment we saw Michi waiting for us at the train station in Hiroshima to the time we left, she took care of us and offered helpful insight into the history and experience of people in Hiroshima. In creating a presentation for us about the legacy successors and descendants of those who experienced the a-bomb and its aftermath, Michi clearly thought a lot about how to present information to help us learn about the experience in a sensitive and caring way. Her tour of the exhibits of the Peace Memorial... read more
Thank you very much, Susan & Family. I really glad to be your guide in Hiroshima. Hope that we will be the last generation of meeting a-bomb witnesses. For this we need to learn the history and past. Thank you for visiting Hiroshima to learn a part of our history. Hope you come back to Hiroshima & visit Miyajima, a sacred island with me! With Lots of Love, Michi
We met Michi at the train station in Hiroshima. We had traveled on the Shinkansen from Osaka for the day. We found the Peace Memorial and Museum to be sobering, and Michi allowed us enough time to absorb the information, and particularly relate it for our two teenagers. She told us her legacy story which was powerful. Lunch was terrific, okonomiyaki, a Hiroshima specialty. For the afternoon, we went to Miyajima island to see the shrine and visit some shops. Michi never rushed us, and gave us lots of information about the area and the culture. We had an enjoyable day and recommend Michi highly.
Hi Nanette, Thank you for taking your time to write such a great review. I was really glad sharing time with you in my hometown, Hiroshima. Also thank you for sharing the experience of a 17 year-old girl. Hope you come back to see the brand-new floating tori gate after the Olympic games and find more charms of Hiroshima. With Lots of Love, Michi
We are two well travelled “Senior” couples and fairly fussy too! We spent the afternoon and evening in Miyajima and the next full day visiting the “must sees” in Hiroshima. Michi is a knowledgeable guide whose company we enjoyed. We have no hesitation in recommending her.
