Michiharu Namba

For the past 10 years, Michiharu Namba has worked in the travel industry as a tour leader, guiding trips through Africa, Europe, and Asia. Yet his interest in Japanese history, culture, art, and literature—paired with his love for hiking—led him back to his home country of Japan to lead trips to iconic settings like Mt. Fuji and Mt. Hiei. When not leading trips, Michiharu enjoys exploring new places in Japan by foot and spends time in his hometown of Nishinomiya.
