Important message from the guide

I am very familiar with leading tours throughout Japan so on occasion, I would be happy to create a bigger experience in other parts of the country if you would like to discuss directly with me.

***Please note that this is a three-stage process: We would agree on destinations and activities to be included. 2. I would compile an overview. 3. If that is accepted, the guest agrees to receive a detailed itinerary including information about attractions, activities and transit details.

**Depending on the guest's length of stay and the time required to produce the tour itinerary document the guest may be quoted a fee of my hourly rate up to a maximum charge of (8) eight hours and if satisfied, to agree to accept that (subject to some reasonable amendments), the agreement to receive the itinerary would be a binding contract to agree to pay for the itinerary with no further obligation to accept it as a tour offer.

Hiroshima Tour Reviews

Fountain of knowledge

Hugh met us punctually on the train station platform as pre arranged. He assisted us with storing our bags for the day then whisked us off via local bus to the Peace Park. It was an enlightening day as we had robust discussion about the world at the time and global ramifications of what happened in 1945. At the end of our time together Hugh gave us onward tips for our next journey and following days. Hugh speaks fluent Japanese and of course his native tongue, English. It was a pleasure to have the company of Hugh for our 5-6 hours in Hiroshima.

Thanks Sandra. It was my pleasure!

A Canny Day in Hiroshima

We did a one day Hiroshima trip last week with Hugh and had a wonderful time. We arrived by shinkansen from Kyoto and Hugh met us on the platform which was very helpful, he also helped me arrange my exact train tickets/schedules ahead of time. Hugh was very patient and accommodating with our large group of 8. Hugh is full of knowledge, easy to talk with and took us to a delicious lunch! Probably one of my top meals while in Japan! Thanks for a great day, Hugh!
