“ Learned a lot! ”

We did the 2 hour walking tour of Hiroshima Peace Park + the additional A-Bomb legacy talk. We learned more in those few hours about the Japanese experience of the A bomb than I had ever learned before. Michi's english was perfectly understandable and she did a great job answering all of our questions (we had a lot!). I think I got much more out of the experience with Michi than had we just toured the park on our own. 100% recommend for anyone looking to enrich the Peace Park experience! Thank you Michi!

“ Sacred Island and Sacred Ground ”

We were very lucky and happy having Michiru spend this important day with us. She helped us understand both the sacredness of Miyajima and the memorial site in Hiroshima. Both were important places for us to see and feel and Michiru allowed both by professionally accompanying us there and showing us its uniqueness and helping us understand the Hiroshima memorial and museum from the survivors' perspective. Michi provided us with a lot of information and was very gracious in answering questions and putting up with my sometimes tender knees. She also allowed us some quiet time in between sharing facts to take everything in and experience the emotional nature of the visit. We never could have seen as much without her experienced help. We are so glad that she agreed to guide us through these important areas in Japan. She kept us on track without feeling rushed and showed us the best spots to view and take beautiful pictures of each interesting site. I had hoped that we would be able to start with Hiroshima first to have enough time at the memorial grounds; however, she notified us that high tide would allow us to see the Miyajima torii at its best and we agreed based on her advice. We were impressed to see the torii in both high and low tides during our short visit to the island and have beautiful pictures to remind us of the beauty we experienced there. Her knowledge of the human experience at Hiroshima was also very interesting and helpful. Thank you Michi for a great visit to Miyajima and Hiroshima!

“ Excellent tour ”

We, family of 4, were in Hiroshima with a cruise and decided to hire a local private toir guide to see the city. We were really fortunate to find Michiru. She is native Hiroshimian and knows the area really well. We spend whole day with Michiru and saw Shukkei-en garden, Hiroshima castle, World Peace Park, and Miyajima Island. Michiru reserved transportation for us, picked an excellent local restaurant for lunch and told us many interesting stories about these sites. Many thanks Michiru for the great tour!
