About

Hi. I'm Michi.

I’m a national licensed tour guide in English. I would like to introduce many faces and charms of Japan and make your stay in Japan more fascinated and satisfied.

My specialty is tours of Hiroshima. In Hiroshima, there are two famous World Heritage Sites, Hiroshima Peace Memorial & Itsukushima Shrine.

I have experienced many tours of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum & Park since I was a junior high school student. I would like to introduce you the a-bomb legacies that are still existing in the city.

I also would like to share time with you in a historic island, Miyajima. There is one of the most famous Shinto shrines, the Itsukushima Shrine.

I also an official ‘A-bomb legacy successor’ designated by the City of Hiroshima. An A-bomb Legacy Successor is a memory keeper of the A-bomb survivors. To ensure that the A-bomb survivors' experiences and desires for peace are faithfully inherited and shared with as many people as possible, the City has started a three-year training program for official ‘A-bomb Legacy Successors.’ It is possible to include my lecture in my tour. It is appreciated that if you could let me know upon your booking.

Let me support your stay in Japan and I look forward to showing you the best of Japan!

Thank you.

Knowledgeable, Organized and Personable

Michi created an itinerary that gave us first an overview and specific spots which were significant because they survived the bombing until today. Then she was able to better share the significance of the many things in the memorial park and museum. That made a difference in our understanding of the many stories of the bombing.

Paul & all, Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Hiroshima. Hiroshima is also called a ‘Phoenix’ city. The city has recovered from ashes, however in the city we can find many legacies of the a-bomb. I’m pleased you have touched some of them. After the renovation of the floating torii gate in Miyajima, please come back & enjoy the atmosphere of the island. Hope to see you again. With lots of Love, Michi

Hiroshima/Miyajima

We had a great day with Michi learning about Hiroshima before, during & after the bomb. We also enjoyed seeing beautiful Miyajima and eating traditional food. We appreciated the recommendation to see the amazing traditional Kagura show in the evening.

A great day with Michi

We greatly enjoyed our day trip with Michi visiting Miyajima island and Hiroshima. The communication with Michi was excellent from the very beginning. She is a very nice person and we are extremely happy with the trip that she tailored exactly as we asked her to do.

Thank you Boris for your review. I believe that you all will be back to Miyajima after the renovation to see the gate. Hope you have more time in Hiroshima next time. With Lots of Love, Michi
