About Mediator
Hi, I'm jasmine. This is my artistic name and for your reference my real name is Yasuko Nakai. But I've been jasmine for quite a while. I'm originally from Wakayama Prefecture near Kyoto, Nara and Osaka and the place is now known for the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, one of the two world heritage pilgrimage paths along with Santiago de Compostela. Remote mystic places like them fascinate me. And often that's what I would like to share with you. But I've been away from Wakayama for a long time. I live in Hiroshima now though my family and I were in and out of Hiroshima a few times. But for my two daughters, Hiroshima is home. They were born here and now live far away. Besides in Wakayama and Hiroshima, I lived in Kyoto, Tokyo, and Oregon. I've been a professional tour guide based in Hiroshima for over 20 years and guided many other places on top of Hiroshima. My particular fields of interests are exploring architecture, art installations, traditional gardens, and local culture. And as a new interest, I learned how to be connected with people via zoom in 2020 and that's why I'm here !!

Jasmin was a superb guide, friendly and knowledgeable. She told lots of interesting stories about a beautiful, historical island, Okunoshima, in the Seto Inland sea. Although I once visited there when I was young, my memory was so vague that I was happy to learn a lot about the island. Thank you so much, Jasmin.


Informative and enjoyable. Thank you so much!
