What to Expect

First up, I bring you to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Hiroshima is well known as the first city in the world history, that was atomic bombed. You may walk and drop by at many spots built to commemorate those who perished in those days and learn more at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. After that study tour, we roam around Central Hiroshima (the busiest street for shopping) and finally arrive at Okonomiyaki restaurant for early supper. Okonomiyaki is Hiroshima's soul food; a savory pancake filled with chopped vegetables, meat, sea food, noodle, egg and whatever you want, even cheese... Actually this is the origin of the name of Okonomiyaki, since Okonomi literally means "as you like" and yaki means grilled. Fun to see how to make on a huge iron plate and exciting to eat with a special tool (Kote). Just give it a try.

“ Fantastic tour of Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was a fantastic guide for our day tour of the Hiroshima historical sites and Itsukushima shrine/Miyajima island. Mayumi was flexible in the lead up to our tour, working with us to craft an itinerary that made sense given our time constraints. While the historical Hiroshima sites are deeply personal in nature, Mayumi interjected appropriately and provided supplemental information to enhance our learning experience. Mayumi went above and beyond, spending extra time with us to ensure we got as much out of the experience as possible. I would recommend Mayumi to anyone considering booking a guide in the region.

“ It was a pleasure to see Hiroshima with Mayumi ”

From my first contact with heri till she said good-bye to us at Hiroshima Station, Mayumi was perfect in all respects. Her planning of our trip and communications with us were flawless. Her knowledge of the city is par excellence. She is proficient in English and therefore very easy to communicate with. I and my family were extremely thankful to her as she made our one day trip to Hiroshima memorable and worthwhile.
