“ Great Day in Nagasaki ”

My wife and I had a great day with Hitomi. She picked us up at the cruise terminal. Her English was outstanding. She took us to many of the local sights in the city and to a local restaurant for lunch. She showed us how to ride the local tram and returned us to the cruise terminal at the end of the day. If you need a guide for Nagasaki you cannot go wrong with Hitomi.

Hitomi:

Dear Chris and Helen I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Nagasaki. It was a big pleasure to show you around the city and to share some time together. Thank you for choosing me as the guide and giving me a kind review! Please come back to Kyushu again, I'm willing to introduce you some other beautiful and interesting areas! Hitomi

“ Tour por la isla de Kyushu ”

La experiencia vivida con la Srta. Hitomi fue excelente, Ya que con ella tuvimos la posibilidad de recorrer lugares que solo se podian visitar en carro particular, Yo rente un auto porque queria viajar por diferentes lugares de la isla que ean de mi interes y necesitaba de un guia, que conociera, la zona, las carreteras y lugares recomendados para comer .

Hitomi:

Alex & Gina Gracias amigos, It was a big pleasure to meet you and spend 4days together! It was an adventure to visit many places by car, and I gotta say you are such a great driver! and Gina is such a sweet and kind person. It was nice listening you two speak in Spanish, it reminded me of old time in California and Sevilla, made me want to learn Spanish again. I'm glad that I could help your trip in Kyushu area. Hope to show you around the south area of Kyushu next time. Thank you very much for your kind review, and it was really nice meeting you both. All the best, Hitomi

“ Wonderful guide ”

Hitomi was a very considerate and accommodating tour guide! She was careful with our time and also spoke English beautifully. We were so happy to have her as our guide instead of taking a tour arranged by our cruise ship in Nagasaki.

Hitomi:

Dear Sandra, Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and it was a pleasure to spend some time with you two. If you ever come back to Kyushu, I'd love to show you some other interesting and beautiful places. Thank you so much for taking my tour, I hope to see you again! Enjoy your trip with your friend! Hitomi

“ Hitomi is an excellent guide! Highly recommend! ”

We had a great time in Nagasaki with Hitomi. Her English is excellent, and she is very easy going and flexible. She didn’t rush us along, found toilets when our small group of older people needed them, and walked at a pace that was comfortable. She took us to a great local restaurant for lunch, had us ride the street cars to get around, and made us feel more like locals than tourists. Hitomi was one of our best guides in Japan and we highly recommend her to tourists from the United States.

Hitomi:

Dear Cynthia, Thank you so much for your kind review. It was such a pleasure to show you around my favorite city. And thank you for your corporation during the tour, it made the tour go smooth. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your lunch at the local restaurant. The streetcar to the museum was packed with people! I'm glad you felt it more like locals, it was an experience(^^) Please come back to Kyushu again, I want to show you more of interesting places! Hitomi

“ Our guide Hitomi ”

Hitomi gave us a two day tour of Nagasaki which was very informative. She helped us choose great spots do visit. Her preparations ensured an excellent tour. Hitomi made the history of Dejima came alive. She chose an excellent restaurant for the Nagasaki specialty Chan-pon Hitomi guided us through the Atom Bomb memorial describing Nagasaki’s saddest day, and showing us how Nagasaki’s recovery is an example for the world.

Hitomi:

It was such a pleasure spending time with you both. I really enjoy having conversation and sharing some thoughts. It was a first time that I took my guest to Nyokodo and Dr.Nagai's memorial hall, and I was actually touched by that. I hope you will find the book in English or you will be able to read it in Japanese in a future. And I'm glad you liked the restaurants, I really liked the curry! Arigatougozaimashita, hope to see you two again! Hitomi
