Hiroshima, Japan

During your visit to Japan, would you like me to show you around my hometown of Hiroshima?

If you are a person who would like to learn about different aspects of Japan and wish to experience its culture on a deeper level, then please join one of my tours. When you finish you will love my city almost as much as I do.

Among the memorable experiences you can have on my tours are: Taste Hiroshima okonomiyaki, a local speciality which is a favourite with my guests; Smell the abundant greenery of hidden gorges in the mountains surrounding Hiroshima; See the beautiful sunsets of the Seto Inland Sea; Learn about Hiroshima's tragic past and how it transformed my city into the treasure that it is today.

As a world traveler I have been familiar with various cultures and have lived in the historical cities of London and Kyoto. These experiences along with my professional background as an architect/interior designer have taught me what appeals to visitors from other parts of the world.

I have been a licensed tour guide for the past four years. During that time I have guided groups ranging in size from a single guest to over forty guests, and I have given business and school tours. My guests have ranged in age from five to eighty years. In addition to guiding, I also teach English to the employees of the tourism industry.

Allow me to make your visit to Hiroshima a memorable one. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you!
