What to Expect

Itsukushima Shrine is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Japan. Its vermilion colored Torii gate, though a little faded now, is a well-known symbol of this World Heritage Site. Miyajima island ,however , is not a special place only for this shrine. The island itself has a sacred atmosphere. In Mt. Misen, you'll find quiet and secluded places for the ascetic training of Buddhist priests in old days. In Daishyoin Temple, you'll see many unique Buddhist images and experience impenetrable darkness. And in Itsukushima Shrine, you'll be aware of Japanese traditional aesthetic values. In this tour, I'd like you to feel heart and soul of the Japanese.

“ Great overall experience! ”

Thank you Azusa san for a geat overall experience inspite of the weather not being very cooperative (raining most of the day). You shared a lot of interesting information and made sure our group got the most out of our trip. We highly recommend your services to other travelers.

Azusa:

Dear Vineet san Thank you so much for your kind words. The reviews I receive motivate me. You are all cheerful and jolly people. Though the weather was not so good and unfortunately the Torii gate was covered, your people seemed to appreciate life as it happens. That was a fantastic time for me to be with you. I wish you all the best ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita

“ Our guide made visiting Hiroshima a more personal experience ”

Visiting Hiroshima is bound to be a moving and also disturbing experience. Azusa was a great companion and guide on this journey. She put together an excellent itinerary, including the use of JR bus (free with rail pass), and she accommodated our preferences both in the planning and on the spot. We learned a lot from Azusa and appreciated our conversations, and instead of feeling overwhelmed and lost, we were able to participate actively in the lantern floating, thus sharing in the common appeal of so many Japanese and visitors for global peace.

Azusa:

Dear Helene san Thank you so much for your kind review. The tour day was so humid and the heat was killing us. I apologize you for making both of you walk long way in such a muggy weather and finishing up the tour earlier than scheduled. It was me who learned a lot from you. You knew well what is needed and not needed in your tour. You told me about your sea kayaking experience in Miyajima Island, which was very inspiring for me. I have never thought of that activity in my tour plan. I again realized that tour guides should try as best as possible to match guests’ desires. I wish you all the best and success in the future

“ Wonderful day in Hiroshima and Miyajima ”

Azusa (Ari) was our tour guide for our extended family group of 9. We had the most wonderful day. She is knowledgeable, engaging, flexible, funny and a great story teller. Highly recommend her.

Azusa:

Dear Manoj san Thank you so much for the wonderful day ! I was so happy to spend a great time with such a close and caring family. Especially I was impressed by your father's great sense of Japanese jokes. " Sekai wa futarino tameni." Though he stayed in Japan only one year long time ago, how fluently he speaks Japanese ! And all 3 boys were so lovely and full of curiosity. I was glad that they listened to me with attention. I wish you all the happiness in the world ! Azusa Arita

“ Visit to Hiroshima ”

Azusa was great. She was very easy to communicate with leading up to our trip and during our short visit. prior to visiting, she proposed an itinerary that maximized our time in Hiroshima. We visited Hiroshima on a day trip from Kyoto. She met us on the train platform and escorted us from place to place on our shortened and self imposed time schedule (4.75 hours - better if you allow for 6-6.5 hours) before returning us back to the train station. She was very knowledgeable and informative on the sites we were visiting and the history of Japan. She was an absolute pleasure to be with, she listened to our cues to move onto the next site, and kept us on schedule throughout the day. A day well spent.

Azusa:

Dear Ross san Thank you so much for your heart touching message. It was my pleasure to have a great time with you in Hiroshima. You are so sweet and smart couple. You clearly knew what you needed in the tour. That absolutely helped our tour go smoothly. And in the museum, I was so impressed that you friendly spoke to the Japanese students writing reports about the exhibit. They looked so happy to be spoken to and lively communicated with you. This must be a memorable experience for them. Interacting with international people should be the essential part of the peaceful world. Thanks to you, I was able to reconfirm my work for what it really is. This tour was short but very impressive. I wish both of you all the best of luck ! Azusa Arita

“ Got the most out of our trip to Hiroshima ”

Ari gave my wife and me a great day seeing all of the highlights of Hiroshima. She led us through Miyajima Island, the Hiroshima Peace Park, and Hiroshima Castle. She organized our day perfectly, and at every stop, she was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and responsive to whatever we found most interesting to do or hear about. She met us at our hotel at the beginning of the day, dropped us off there at the end, and made us feel so well taken care of at every stop in between. Strongly recommended!

Azusa:

Dear Kenneth san Thank you so much for your kind remark. I have got courage from your words. Both of you are brilliant and cheerful people. I really enjoyed spending wonderful time exchanging jokes in refreshing breeze and fresh green leaves. Everything was vivid except for deer. All deer were dozing off in the sun.( I wonder if deer are nocturnal.) You showed much interest in not only the peace city of Hiroshima but also the pre-modern history of Hiroshima. That made me so happy. Japan has become quite westernized but I think the very real element in the Japanese personality lies in samurai culture. Your jobs are busy and high demanding. Please fully enjoy your limited vacation in Japan ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
