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.

It was pleasure to spend our day in Kagoshima with Miki, she was such a well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable guide. She had amazing communication and organisation before the day and was able to answer all of our questions in great depth. And above all she was so friendly and lovely, we had all made such a wonderful friend by the end of the day!

Dear BJ, Thank you for review! That means a lot to me. I had a great time with you and your friends! I wish you have a great memory in Japan, and you come back to Japan, Kagoshima again in the near future! Best wishes to all, Miki
Miki is local to Kagoshima and knows the history of the area very very well. She also serves as a English speaking guide at the Sengan-en Garden (which also houses a museum of Kagoshima). Her communication before the day was excellent and very timely. Her clarity during the day was perfect. If you are looking for a personable, well informed, very competent guide who speaks impeccable English, then Mikiko is your person.
Hi, John! Thank you for review! It means a lot to me!! That’s wonderful time for me to have a chance to guide two of you! I hope you had a great moment on Mt.Sakurajima on that day. And if there is another possibility to meet you again, I’m thrilled to assist you! Please say hello to Luz! Miki
My husband and I had a private tour with Mikiko and she went out of her way to make it special. She was a delight and spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend booking with her. Thank you Mikiko for making our visit wonderful!
Thank you, Denna! And thank you for joining my tour! I'm very happy to know that you and your husband had a wonderful time in Kagoshima. I hope you come back to Japan someday and visit Kagoshima again to have another extraordinary experience!! I'm happy to arrange it to you!
