Hi! I’m a licensed guide living in Kagoshima. Please call me Miki ! Now I’m working as a guide and an interpreter. And I have a certificate for medical interpreter. I love to meet new people.
In my town Kagoshima, threre are abundant nature and places where you can experience unique local culture. My favorite place is Mt. Sakurajima. It’s one of the best active volcanoes in the world. From observatories, you could feel its energy and, moreover if you are lucky, it will erupt in front of you!
If you are interested in history of Japan, here is the right place to visit because..... oops, I’ll tell you the story when we meet!!
I’m very flexible and cheerful. And I’m very happy to arrange a tour for you and customize it according to your request!! So please leave your message to me and feel free to ask me if you have any questions or specific requests before you come.
I’m looking forward to seeing you here Kagoshima!! Can’t wait!!

“ I will definitely visit Sakurajima. ”

She was very well prepared, even for questions. This is a very interesting tour for everyone, people with interest in nature, science, food, photography, or onsen. The tour was enjoyable, well organized, informative and persuasive. Mikiko gave clear explanations in fluent English. She has a good sense of humor. I will definitely visit Sakurajima!


Dear Natsuko, Thank you for the wonderful feedback! I really appreciate it!! I’m very happy to know you like it. Please come and stay on Mt.Sakurajima with your friends and enjoy the energy of the volcano ^ ^ Best regards, Mikiko

“ Great communicator and tour! ”

We recently did the “Online experience: Furoshiki Lesson and Stroll Historical Area” with Mikiko. We have a unique connection to Kagoshima in that we have a dear friend who lives there. Ayano was a foreign exchange student who stayed with us in the summer of 1987. Ayano is the person who does the Furoshiki lesson and she is a Kimono master. Mikiko is super easy to communicate with both online (written communication) and on the virtual tour (verbal communication). The Furoshiki lesson was learning how to utilize the ancient custom of using squares of cloth to wrap items and carry items. Mikiko translated as Ayano demonstrated and I now know how to wrap a gifts that will amaze my friends, since I’m not known to be very crafty! Our walk to the Kagoshima Castle was quite nice. I loved l... read more


Thank you, Janet! I'm very happy to have you this virtual tour and reunion of you and Ayano! When you visit Kagoshima, I would be definitely happy to take you many interesting and cultural places with teacher Ayano!! Let's take a walk in Kimono with a furoshiki bag! I'm very looking forward to meeting you some day in the near future!!

“ Great Tour ”

We had a great tour with Mikiko. We saw the garden and the volcano erupted for us. I'm short of internet minutes or I would write a lot more. I highly recommend Mikiko as a guide.
