About Tour Guide Mikiko H.

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, there 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!!

Miki

Mikiko H. Japan Tour Reviews

Wow of A Day

Mikiko is a wonderful guide. Her personality is very warm and engaging. Her flexibility to make changes for her customers was great. Weather conditions on the day weren’t conducive to our planned day, hence plans modified to make a perfect day. We experienced a wonderful day of local Japanese Culture. Later on she kindly assisted me with our further planning in Japan.

Michael A.

Dear Micheal, Thank you for your great review on me and about the tour we enjoyed together! It was my pleasure to have a tour for your wonderful group!! Please enjoy the rest of the days in Japan and when you have a chance, please come back to Kagoshima!!

Wonderful day in Kagoshima

Mikiko was a kind, great English speaking, fantastic guide for Kagoshima, as a native she knows the city and its sites so well. She was able to make last minute changes to the original plans for our family and explain all sorts of history to us. She had planned our travel perfectly and made sure we made our train back on time. Highly recommend Mikiko as a guide! She was great!!
