We hired Azusa as our tour guide for the Miyajima Island tour. We were a group of 4 (me and my wife, my sister and her husband). Azusa is an excellent guide with a warm personality and we all got along great with her. She shows a lot of passion in her work as she guided us around Miyajima Island and also has a great sense of humor and always filled our conversations with interesting facts and funny jokes. She also happily volunteered taking lots of photos for us. She took us to one of the restaurants that serves Okonomiyaki Miyajima style and we were seated right at the front of the cooking area where we could watch the chefs go through the various aspects of putting this wonderful dish together. I would highly recommend this. She made reservations for us and we didn't wait even though it was a busy lunch time period. Overall we enjoyed a great day with Azusa feeling not as tourists or visitors but more like friends to her.
Dear Chris san I really appreciate your kind message. Your words encourage me more than you think. I was so happy to have a lovely day with all of you in Miyajima. You visited Japan best time for cherry blossoms. Now they are almost over. All of you are very sweet, warm-hearted and cheerful above all. I felt like one of your friends. Your jokes made me so happy. Thanks to your sister I have got some tips of guide jokes.I was inspired by her! I was also impressed that all of you showed much interest in Japanese things and asked me many questions. It was my pleasure. I hope my answer made sense to your questions. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and wish you well ! Sincerely, Azusa
