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.

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

Wonderful day in Hiroshima!

We had a wonderful day in Hiroshima. Mayumi is wonderful-she shares a wealth of knowledge both on the sites we visited and how to get there. This has been one of the best tour experiences I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Mayumi!!

Dear Meri, I appreciate your wonderful review. I was forever grateful that you were able to come to Japan and Hiroshima to share your time and joy wth us. Now we have a difficult time and many sites & facilities are shut down, though. I hope you will have good memories in Japan and come back to fully enjoy next time. Again I was so touched by your consideration and thoughtfulness. Please give my best regards to your son and friends. Thank you very much. Mayumi

A wonderful with Mayumi

My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Mayumi at Miyajima and Peace Park. We were blessed with good weather (despite earlier rain forecast), and more importantly, informative, understanding and helpful guide. We have been to both places previously on our own many years ago. However, with Mayumi as our guide, we felt like we were visiting them for the very first time! Should we return to Hiroshima again, we will certainly engage her as our guide again!

Dear Yean san. I appreciate the awesome review you kindly left. I couldn’t be happier. The day I spent with you was surely memorable and joyful. It felt on the auspicious first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, which made it more special for you. I was honored that I could be with you and your gracious wife on that special day. I was also very grateful for everything you two kindly did for me. May every day of the New Year brings you sweet surprises that fill your life with happiness. With gratitude, Mayumi
