Come and enjoy my tour! You will feel just like a local
My name is Michiko Nishihara.
I was born and raised in Hiroshima.
I learned English and American literature at junior college and after my graduation, I used to work for a travel bureau.
After raising my children, I now work for the information center for foreign residents and also work as a licensed guide-interpreter.
As I have been living here since I was born and my parents and grandparents also lived, worked, and breathed in Hiroshima, I can tell you how the city changed after the war and share my family experience.
Hiroshima has many rivers, mountains, and a beautiful Inland sea. You can enjoy plenty of nature and a bustling city with lots of fascinating history at the same time with very welcoming locals.
Let’s enjoy sightseeing, eating local foods and drink produce, local shopping, walking along the river and spending local like day together.
Okonomiyaki is cooked on the griddle. Looks good?! You can eat straight from the griddle without plating it up first. Why don’t we enjoy together?
Hiroshima has six rivers inside the city. This river is called Otagawa river. I take a walk along this river twice a week. Here is my comfort place.
