“ Hiroshima Day Tour ”

We had a great time with Michi in Hiroshima. She met us at the station and took us through the Hiroshima peace mark, museum and over to Miyajima island. Being vegetarian, she knew of a place where we could get a vegetarian ominiyaki as well. She set a good relaxing pace for the day so things weren't overwhelming and we didn't feel rushed at all either, being able to take our team reading about the exhibits in the museum. She also had substantial knowledge and was able to give us lots of background on everything we saw. It was a great way to tour Hiroshima.

Michiru:

Thank you for your review, Jamie. I’m so glad to hear that you like Hiroshima’s soul food, Okonomiyaki; sounds like a tongue twister. I hope we have time to fold an Origami paper crane for the children's monument. Hope you visit Hiroshima again to see the main building of the museum. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Personal guided tour of Hiroshima memorial and museum and Miyajima ”

We had a great day with Michi exploring the Hiroshima Memorial Park and Museum followed by an afternoon visit to see the Itsukushima Shrine (Miyajima). Michi is very knowledgeable about her home city and was happy to do the tour at a slower pace due to my elderly parents needing to take things easier. Michi is warm and approachable and we were so lucky to have booked her - I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Michiru:

Hi Jayne & Family! I knew that you were at the very last few days of the long journey, so there was no wonder to enjoy the day in a leisurely pace. Did you find new KitKat flavours in Osaka? I sure you did! Hope you come back to Japan to find more lovely faces and to see me! Thank you again! With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Hiroshima and the floating tori gate ”

Michi, thank you for a terrific day. We began our day with a very emotional experience to the A dome and the museum. Michi told us the story she is the keeper. It was a heartbreaking story and Michi did an amazing job, bringing us back to the aweful day. We ended the day at the beautiful floating tori gate and enjoyed a traditional sweet. Thank you Michi for a very beautiful memorable day.

Michiru:

Hi Jill, Thank you for your wonderful comment and sharing the story of the 17 year-old girl & her mother. It was a pity that we couldn’t see sushi running on a conveyor belt. Hope your coming back to Japan and enjoy more tastes. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Review of Michiru in Hiroshima ”

We arrived in Hiroshima with little time and very tired Grandchildren. Michiru was very accommodating took us to a lovely park. We had to separate because our autistic granddaughter had had enough. Michiru worked out the problem, put me in a cab to the hotel and took the rest of the family to the peace park. They had a great afternoon with her. In all a great experience. I would totally recommend her to any English speaking groups and others of course. Lyn Hodgson

Michiru:

Hi Lyn & Family, Thank you for your wonderful review. After the long journey from Tokyo and it was a short stay, but I’m pleased to hear you have satisfied with the tour. Hope next time you spend more time in Hiroshima and find more attractions at my hometown. With Lots of Love, Michi
