“ A day in Miyajima & Hiroshima ”

Michi toured our family of 5 (2 grandparents, 2 children, and myself) around Miyajima and Hiroshima Peace Park. We were on day 8 of travel and very tired. She was super understanding and adjusted her pace & plans to work with our family. Her English was great and she was very good with my children. She took them to a home-made Momiji Manju baking class in Miyajima that was the highlight of my children's trip. She was a great teacher, knowledgeable about the area, easy to understand, and I would use her again as a tour guide.

“ Hiroshima, half day tour. ”

Michi was prompt in picking us up at our hotel. She led us through the Hiroshima museum ( the Bank), through the city to the Shrunken Gardens, the A Bomb Dome, The Museum and the Peace Promenade all through poring rain. She was pleasant and informative, yet inobtrusive as we explored what Hiroshima City has done to commemorate the happenings of August 6 1945 and to promote the banning of nuclear weapons. She was just the type of guide we needed as it was a very emotional experience.

“ Great guide for Hiroshima & Miyajima ”

The day before the tour, we arrived in Hiroshima. She sended us an e-mail with a tip to visit Shukkeien Garden at night, to see the beautiful illuminated cherry blossoms. Even before we met, she was already a great guide! At our request, she started the day tour by taking us to Miyajima at the highest tide to see the famous tori in the water. Back in Hiroshima, she guided us through the Peace Memorial Park and was able to tell us many stories behind the monuments.
