梅谷美知子/ Michiko Umetani
Hi! I'm Michiko, a Japanese who lives in Sasayama city, Hyogo prefecture, Japan. I have been working as Sasayama city Local Vitalization Cooperator since April, 2017.
I grew up in Amagasaki city (close to Osaka), some early years in United States and Germany (My native language is only Japanese, however.) then finally came back to Japan in 1999. I moved to Tokyo to study in Waseda university, and after graduated, had jobs of music promoter and restaurant service. After that experiences, had moved to Sasayama city to start my own business, a tourist company in Hyogo prefecture, Japan.
I sincerely love this country.
Now I'm spending totally different time to it used to be in Tokyo. Tokyo have taught me how to enjoy the newest aspects of Japan, while for now, how to enjoy traditional aspects is what I am learning here.
I'd like to introduce the appeals of Japan's countryside through local experiences. Let me show you the Good Old Japan by visiting the castletown, or spending time in "Satoyama" ; the verge area of forest and human site.
You know what, it's only 1 hour to get here from Osaka or Kyoto!
I will make a suitable plan for you, show how to know deeper about Japan.
