What a fabulous day we had in Hiroshima! Along with the perfect driver, we toured Hiroshima Peace Park and the Children's Peace Monument with Mayumi. She taught us all (3 American couples) how to make an origami paper crane that we placed in the Children's Peace Memorial. One of our fondest memories! Next we took the ferry to Mijajima Island and explored the beautiful Tori gate and the temples. We walked through the shopping area and sat down for a tasty treat of Momiji Manju (filled pastry) cakes with Japanese tea. What a fun experience. We took the ferry back to the mainland before returning to the ship. Mayumi's English is perfect and her love for her country is very evident. I asked MANY questions before we met and Mayumi met all our expectations. It was the perfect day - don't miss out on a fabulous day with Mayumi.
Dear Claudia, I am so grateful to you for this wonderful review and happy to know that you enjoyed the tour. We started to communicate in July last year, didn't we? I thought it would be still far away, though. it surely came. Time flies! I also very much enjoyed being with you and your group members, who are all active and independent-minded travelers. Please keep writing your own tales on a blank page at more places you travel all over the the world. God bless you all Mayumi.
