“ Knowledgeable, Organized and Personable ”

Michi created an itinerary that gave us first an overview and specific spots which were significant because they survived the bombing until today. Then she was able to better share the significance of the many things in the memorial park and museum. That made a difference in our understanding of the many stories of the bombing.

Michiru:

Paul & all, Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Hiroshima. Hiroshima is also called a ‘Phoenix’ city. The city has recovered from ashes, however in the city we can find many legacies of the a-bomb. I’m pleased you have touched some of them. After the renovation of the floating torii gate in Miyajima, please come back & enjoy the atmosphere of the island. Hope to see you again. With lots of Love, Michi

“ Hiroshima/Miyajima ”

We had a great day with Michi learning about Hiroshima before, during & after the bomb. We also enjoyed seeing beautiful Miyajima and eating traditional food. We appreciated the recommendation to see the amazing traditional Kagura show in the evening.

Michiru:

Thank you Julie for giving me a wonderful review! Our culture has a deep connection with religions, and they are very melted into our life. So we accept anything what we like. Hope you enjoy rest of your stay and find more local attractions! With lots of Love, Michi

“ A great day with Michi ”

We greatly enjoyed our day trip with Michi visiting Miyajima island and Hiroshima. The communication with Michi was excellent from the very beginning. She is a very nice person and we are extremely happy with the trip that she tailored exactly as we asked her to do.

Michiru:

Thank you Boris for your review. I believe that you all will be back to Miyajima after the renovation to see the gate. Hope you have more time in Hiroshima next time. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Wonderful insight into the tragic event... ”

Michiru- san was at the hotel well before time and thanks to her we were able to check in using her mobile phone to get the confirmation email!!!! The tour itself was short but covered all the sites associated with the tragic bombing and her in-depth knowledge helped getting more insights. Unfortunately we could not treat her to a much anticipated lunch , but guided us to a wonderful place where we had okonomiyaki... She gave us all the guidance required for spending the evening and booking tickets for airport bus etc... Dilip

Michiru:

Hi Dilip & Family, Thank you for your brilliant review! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Hiroshima, and my local taste ‘Okonomiyaki.’ Next time I sure recommend you to stay in Miyajima, a gorgeous island. Of cause! After the completion of the renovation.Hope to see you in near future! With Lots of Love, Michi
