About Tour Guide Michiko N.

Hello, I am Michiko , the same name of Japanese ex-Empress. I am a government certified tour guide.

I have lived in Nagoya ( located between Tokyo and Osaka) for 35 years since I got married.

I worked for JAL as a flight attendant in my 20's. After retiring JAL, I have taught English and Mathematics to junior and senior high school students for 20 years.

I love traveling very much both domestically and abroad and enjoy walking around each city and talking with local people so that I can find out the way how to they live and think about their life. It's quite a fun for me. I also love hiking and mountain climbing in spring, summer and autumn, and skiing in winter.

In the countryside of Japan there still remain those farming and fishery villages where people have been rooted in their land and community, living the way handed down from generation to generation.

You can also enjoy the original Japanese landscape there.

Why don't you get out of the hustle and bustle of your busy life and have a rest rich in nature in the rural Japan enjoying beautiful scenery and local food.

I'm waiting for you!

Important

I can guide you in Ise in Mie prefecture and in Takayama & Shirakawa-go in Gifu prefecture, if you pay the transportation fee of mine.

Michiko N. Japan Tour Reviews

Very kind and proactive guide!

Michiko guided us hiking from Magome to Tsumago and sightseeing at Kiso Fukushima. She was very patient with the slow hiking members and took good care of them. She was very friendly and interacted well with everyone. She also helped us call the lunch place in advance so that everything is ready just when we arrive.

Wonderful Experience in Nagoya

MICHIKO was a very good choice for our group of 6. She was waiting for us at the cruise terminal and guided us to the Toyota Museum and Tokugawa Museum. She told us about the city, it’s history and what we could expect at the museums. We had time to enjoy the exhibits and did not feel rushed. We were all happy with MICHIKO, her knowledge and her English skills.

Genevieve  W.

Dear Genevieve, Thank you so much for such an excellent review. I’m so glad to know that all of you enjoyed Toyota Museum and Tokugawa Museum last Friday. I also really had a delightful time with such wonderful people like you all. I thank you all for your consideration and kindness. Best regards, Michiko

We had an Incredible time with Michiko!

Michiko was our Guide during our time in Nagoya, and she was great providing us an overview of the history of the city and the places we visited (Nagoya Castle, Osu, etc). We also had an amazing traditional lunch with her and spoke more about Japanese life which is one of the key reasons I enjoy meeting with guides wherever I go. She was great with our kids and gave them tons of snacks for the day. As a local Nagoyan resident, she knows the city well, and even helped us get some train tickets afterwards. Highly recommended if you are in Nagoya.

Paola B.

I’m looking forward to seeing you again next trip in Japan. Sincerely yours, Michiko
