Yoshimi N.

Hiroshima, Japan

Hi, there! My name is Yoshimi. I was born and raised in Hiroshima.

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

Yoshi is an outstanding tour guide. She guided us through an informative and heartfelt tour of the Hiroshima Peace Park, and provided an incredible depth of information about each building, statue, memorial, and museum. She also expertly guided us through the Shrine and Buddhist Temple on Mayajima island, bringing us to little known spots that others passed right by. Yoshi is friendly yet professional, and a great conversationalist. I highly recommend her as a tour guide.
