Having worked for All Nippon Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways as a flight attendant, I now work as a tour guide, an interpreter and an instructor for manners and etiquette.
I have been working as a nationally licensed tour guide including for VIPs for more than 15 years since 2001.
Since I live in Hiroshima, I mainly offer tours in and around Hiroshima.
Two of the most popular sightseeing spots in the world, Peace Memorial Park and Miyajima, are in Hiroshima.
You must visit Peace Memorial Park while you are here, since it is an indispensable and truly reflective place for building world peace.
Of course, you can count on me to tell you where to eat delicious local cuisine, such as Okonomiyaki and oysters, where to shop and even where to sing Karaoke!
Hiroshima also has the sacred island "Miyajima".
Sacred deer welcome us on the island.
Naoshima, an art island is also a must while you are here. Riding a power bike, experiencing the Seto Inland Sea, its nature and local streets are brilliant.
How about going a little further to Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni, the Kurashiki Bikan historic quarter and Himeji Castle?
I am happy to customize your tour, so shoot me a note and I'll send along a list of possible attractions.
Why don't you join me to make your stay in Japan one of a kind and a once in a lifetime experience?
A Recent Review of this guide
Yoshie delivered a great tour. This is obviously an emotional tour. She connected with each of us personally and went out of her way to make the tour personal. She went way beyond what was expected and took us all the way to Miyajima on the ferry even though that was not part of the tour. This was one of the best tours we have had with Tours by Locals. We would highly recommend Yoshie and this tour.
