“ A Thorough, Friendly and Skilled Tour Guide ”

Michi gave my wife and I an amazing day tour in Hiroshima. Before we ever met, Michi worked with our arrival and departure schedule to customize the tour. She accommodated all of our requests, including meeting us at the airport and pre-purchasing event and transit tickets so we wouldn't have to wait in lines. First she gave us a broad and interesting overview of the area, going back more than a thousand years and with context to the major events going on in Japan in each time period. Next, she gave us a thorough and well explained tour of the central sites related to the atomic bombing. She relayed to us the feelings and experiences of ordinary Hiroshima residents clearly and with respect. She filled us with emotion at the tragedy and recovery of her great city. Then she took us on a tour of the island of Miyajima and especially the Itsukushima shrine. She walked us through many of the parts of the shrine and the neighboring temple and explained the history and meaning of each part well. Finally she guided us back, by boat, train, and bus, to get back to the airport for our return to Kyoto.

Michiru:

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your kind message. I’m really glad to hear that you have satisfied my tour and loved my hometown. This time we didn’t use a ‘streetcar’, or tram. Next time when you visit Hiroshima, please enjoy our local transportation system, ‘streetcar’. Some call Hiroshima a city of active rail museum, as some cars are time-honored. Hope you enjoy rest of your journey and safe back to your home. Michi
