Great guide

Kazumi took us around Hiroshima and Miyajima. She accommodated our requests and were easy to talk to regarding the schedule and itinerary. On the tour, she took time to talk to each of us including the children. Warm and friendly and knows her stuff.

Amazing tour

We really enjoyed our tour of Peace park with Kazumi! We loved hearing her insights and talked about so many interesting things along the way. She also walked us to our lunch spot to enjoy some delicious okonomiyaki while she helped prepare us for our self tour at Miyajima with a map, how to navigate the ferry, and our train stops home. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. We traveled from Kyoto for the day and are so thankful that we did. We highly recommend a tour with her! She is the best.
