Private tour guide Mikiko

Mikiko H.

Kagoshima, Japan

Hello! I'm Mikiko! You can call me Miki! I was born and bred in Kagoshima.

Now l'm living with my husband, two sons, and one dog.
I have worked as an interpreter and a port agent for cruise ships for about 7 years. Fortunately I had opportunities to work in from very formal international conferences to music and sports events as an interpreter. As a port agent, I often take crew members and passengers to hospitals for medical emergency, so I've learned basic medical English and got a certificate last year. Still I'm learning such terms for the next level.
For local companies, I join business meetings as an interpreter and translate documents for them.
In addition, I have worked as a lecturer at an English academy for about five years.
As a licensed international guide, I've guided FIT and big group for tours about 3 years now. I took them various sightseeing spots in Kagoshima. Sometimes for people who want to experience something very local or Japan, I offered such opportunities using various channels I have.
