Two lovely days with Kazumi

My wife and I were fortunate to have spent a day and a half with Kazumi. One day we spent in Hiroshima and the next day was a half day in Miyajima. Kaz is a delightful, well informed, energetic wonderful person. Her English is excellent and local knowledge superb. We loved her smile and warmth. I would highly recommend touring with Kazumi!

Kazumi M.

Totally worth it to get a guide

Kazumi was on time to meet us at the station - this was really helpful as we didnt know the station. She was very patient with the group and quickly saw that we all had different interests. She gave us a lot of very interesting information but not too much. She had just the right speed with us. A very pleasant, easy and likable young woman. Without her we would not have seen or understood half the terrible history of Hiroshima

Kazumi M.

Thank you for your wonderful comment, Anita. Congratulations for the Victory of South Africa in Rugby World Cup. I am sure you all had a great time in Stadium. I was very happy to spend and share my time and knowledge with you. It was very interesting to know about South Africa. I hope I can visit you in South Africa sometime soon. Please say hello to your husband and friends. Love, Kazumi
