Hello! I’m Hitomi. I was born and raised in Kagoshima. After graduating from the college, I mostly lived in Tokyo and came back to my hometown 10 years ago. I love communicating with people and sharing each other’s culture and history. As I used to work at an airline company, I could travel many foreign countries with lots of joy experiencing their unique cultures. Now, I want to help visitors from abroad to enjoy Japanese unique culture and history.

Hello, I am a retired captain of a commuter airline, with over 40 years of experience and over 22,400 flight hours focused on providing safe and comfortable travel. I have had the opportunity to visit various countries, including Japan, the United States, China, Taiwan, South Korea, and the Philippines. After retiring, I worked as a volunteer guide for city walks in Kagoshima for eight years and obtained my certification as a certified guide for the World Heritage Sites in Kagoshima Prefecture. The joy of traveling overseas is getting to know different cultures, languages, and the unique lifestyles and food cultures of the people. However, what is most valuable to me are the memories made meeting people during travels. During my career, I focused on safely and comfortably transporting passengers. Today, I aim to continue a job that brings travelers fun and memorable experiences. I am committed to being a reliable guide for everyone and providing memorable trips.

Wonderful tour of Kagoshima!

Moriaki gave the four of us an excellent tour of several fascinating sites in Kagoshima. He was extremely organized and kept us on schedule throughout the day. He provided outstanding narration and history on the places we visited and made the day interesting. He organized a very enjoyable lunch for us at an authentic local restaurant. Overall Moriaki provided a fascinating glimpse into the history of Japan and a most memorable day.
