Hi! I'm Chisato Danura.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Onomichi is located in the western part of Japan. It has been a thriving merchant town thanks to its port since olden times. Many old temples still stand on the hill along the sea, which creates a unique atmosphere.
The town stretches from east to west. Hills rise sharply behind the town. This limited space provides nostalgic and romantic ambience. Many writers visited this place and excellent works have been produced. Definitely, this town makes you feel something you have not found in yourself yet. Come and find yourself here in Onomichi.
I once have worked in Onomichi. People here are just like ones in other places but they love their heritage. Traditional ideas and customs are still alive in the city. I would like visitors to share their minds and feelings with me.
Japan has many fascinating aspects. Try to seek another attraction in this local town. Enjoy finding and feeling the difference from your own.
1.Ushitora shrine⇒Feel the atmosphere of the oldest shrine in Onomichi
2.Tenneiji temple⇒See 500 wooden statues of Buddha's disciples
3.An alley of cats⇒Meet cute round cats along the lane and start a little hiking
4.Senkoji temple & park⇒Enjoy the panoramic view of the Inland Sea
5.A ropeway⇒Go down the hill and share a bird's-eye view of the hill city
6.Japanese-style meal⇒Have a taste of sushi which is warm
Enjoy the tour!

I have run a small English conversation school at home for more than ten years. It is my pleasure to encourage and see the students' gradual improving processes through this work.
At the same time, I would say it is also my delight to introduce Japanese things to international visitors to Japan.
Japan will need to have wider perspective in order to get along with this world. I believe that the guiding job is one of the first steps to grassroots exchanges with other countries.
My favorite motto is " Today is also one precious day in my whole life." I would like to value and remember this phrase every day. Thank you very much.

Chisato was our translator when we met our Japanese family for the first time in Onomichi - near Hiroshima. We used her from 9am to 4pm and she was amazing the entire time before and during the day. Prior to the trip, she contacted us multiple times via WOW U to set the meeting point. She even contacted our relatives in Japan to verify the schedule. This was especially helpful because we are based in US and can not speak Japanese. One the day of the family reunion, Chisato met us promptly at the train station and arranged a taxi to take us to our relative's home. We had an amazing day meeting with the relatives for the first time and Chisato translated the entire day. She not only put us at ease, but also put our Japanese speaking relatives at ease. We did not have to worry about communication. I would hire Chisato again without any hesitation!
