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!

We had a wonderful tour with Michi! She exceeded every expectation, was extremely knowledgeable about Hiroshima and surrounding areas as well as Japanese history. I highly recommend requesting the A Bomb legacy lecture from her, it gives a very personal touch to have a better understanding of that day from someone who lived through it. Fantastic tour! Highly recommend for anyone who would like a personal touch on seeing Hiroshima and Miyajima! Thanks Michi!
Hi Dena, I also had a brilliant time with you & your family. Thank you for sharing a story of a girl who was under the mushroom cloud. I would like to see you again and explore Hiroshima attractions with your girls! With Lots of Love, Michi
Michi gave us a thorough and thoughtful tour of Hiroshima. She led us through the city by each important yet seemingly ordinary site. She explained its significance and added a story about the people who were connected to the site. By the time we got to the museum, we had a real sense of context from the local perspective for the events of that horrible day. She also gave us a short talk at the end about her connection as a legacy guide and another survivor story. She was a wonderful guide - prompt, personable, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her. Thank you, Michi.
Hi Frances! Thank you very much for having me as your guide and your warmhearted review. I'm pleased to be able to share the 17yr-old girl's story with you. Next time you come to Hiroshima, hope we can visit the sacred island, Miyajima together. Hope ti see you again in near future. With Lots of Love, Michi
Very helpful and knowledgeable thanks

Hi Shelly, Thank you for your warm review. It was my pleasure to be with you! Please come back Hiroshima anytime and let’s enjoy more Okonomiyaki! Also you can join an Okonomiyaki cooking class to enjoy at your home. Hope to see you again. With Lots of Love, Michi
Michiru was a wonderful guide and we really enjoyed our tour. Michiru was very knowledgeable and we learned alot. My daughter and I could not have experienced the island as well without her.
Hi Kerri, Thank you for sharing time with me in Miyajima. I’m so glad to hear you have enjoyed my tour. Hope you come back to Hiroshima and try our local taste ‘Okonomiyaki.’ Mahalo, Michi
