What to Expect

First up, I bring you to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Hiroshima is well known as the first city in the world history, that was atomic bombed. You may walk and drop by at many spots built to commemorate those who perished in those days and learn more at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. After that study tour, we roam around Central Hiroshima (the busiest street for shopping) and finally arrive at Okonomiyaki restaurant for early supper. Okonomiyaki is Hiroshima's soul food; a savory pancake filled with chopped vegetables, meat, sea food, noodle, egg and whatever you want, even cheese... Actually this is the origin of the name of Okonomiyaki, since Okonomi literally means "as you like" and yaki means grilled. Fun to see how to make on a huge iron plate and exciting to eat with a special tool (Kote). Just give it a try.

Mayumi was excellent!

Mayumi was extremely knowledgeable, as well as very obliging and flexible. She gave us an outstanding tour of everything in Hiroshima that we were keen to see.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Laurence. I was amazed at how well your children had studied what Hiroshima experienced that day and many tragic stories of what happened during the war. Even your daughter knew the location of the hypocenter, although most Japanese children would hardly know anything about it. Brilliant! Hope they enjoy Origami paper folding and have a good report at school! Thank you very much. Mayumi

Perfectly Planned Tour of The Island Shrine of Itsukushima and Hiroshima.

Mayumi is an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Before our trip, Mayumi sent me an agenda that clearly outlined our day, which included train schedules to make our planning a breeze. In addition, she grew up in the area and related her family's personal experience with the bombing, which added an additional layer to our understanding of how the bomb affected the people of Hiroshima. Having a guide explaining the bombing from both professional and personal experience was invaluable, and I highly recommend Mayumi as a tour guide.

Dear Mary I appreciate your amazing review. It was my pleasure to have served you all as a guide. You know how to enjoy and find joy in anywhere. You were always surrounded by smiles and compassion. I also very much enjoyed the day with your group. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. Mayumi

Great day with Mayumi-san

We had a great day with Mayumi-san. She recommended us to visit Takehara and Okunoshima and we are happy we followed her advice. Everything went smoothly and Mayumi-san went above and beyond to make sure we are having a good experience and time.

Mayumi I.

Dear Maria-san. I very much appreciate your excellent review. It was surely a lovely day thanks to you and your fabulous family members and yes, thanks to the fine weather, we could enjoy the day more...actually we had so much worried about the weather, right?! (chuckle). Please enjoy another memorable time in Hiroshima before your departure tomorrow. Wish you all happiness, good health and PEACE! Arigato Gozaimashita. Best, Mayumi
