Hi, I’m Michelle

I’ve lived in Kobe for 23 years

I speak English, Japanese

I am a Post Pregnancy Rehab Specialist


Half-Japanese half-USA American, bi-cultural/bi-lingual, outgoing spirit, who has passions for many genres of life. I have lived on and off throughout my entire life in this beautiful Kobe city. Life-long entrepreneur, ex-elite level athlete, (current masters athlete), and multi-media artist, (computer graphics, video editing, and traditional media). I love trying new things, and seeing new places, and want to offer you my enthusiasm while helping you explore Kobe. The go-to person who can take you to the “off-the-main road” mom & pop izakaya eateries, to the happenin’ places for night life, (dancing, karaoke, etc). Of course this won’t leave out the famous temples/jinjas, onsen/hot springs, and popular shopping locations, (from the underground type, to luxury brand stores), if that is on your list of to-do’s. Is this a family trip? I have 3 children myself, and know many children friendly places for your family to enjoy. Tell me what peaks your interest, and we can plan a Kobe spree that will bring a smile to your face every time you reminisce :-)
