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.

“ Hiroshima Tour ”

We had a great visit with Mayumi as she toured us through Hiroshima. She balanced our visit between old and new and of course the Peace Memorial. Very good knowledge and she was very good with our children to try to engage them with the sights.

MAYUMI:

Dear Todd Thank you very much for your good review. I surely had a lovely time with your wonderful family. Your children are amazing. Although they are small, they try to absorb what they see and build up new knowledge based on their previous learning. More over they are so cute!! Please enjoy the rest of your journey in Japan. Best, Mayumi

“ Hiroshima and Miyajima with Mayumi ”

Mayumi put together a perfect itinerary for our day - a morning trip to delightful Miyajima and an afternoon in Hiroshima, visiting the Peace Museum, the park and the A-bomb dome. Mayumi was very helpful, knowledgeable and informative and was most considerate in planning our day - highly recommended!

MAYUMI:

Dear James Thank you very much for your nice review. It was a great pleasure to have met you two. I hope you continue your great journey with your beautiful wife. Bon Voyage!! Best, Mayumi

“ Excellent half day tour of Hiroshima ”

Excellent communication and half day tour with Mayumi. We were able to go through Peace Park museum, Atomic Dome, Hiroshima Castle and glean tons of interesting information from Mayumi's expertise in the city. Especially neat was a trip to the elementary school museum where there were post bombing messages recovered from underneath the walls.

MAYUMI:

Dear Steve. Thank you very much for your generous review. I had a wonderful time thanks to you and Patrick. I never knew that the Peace Museum is that quiet and calm before 9 am (chuckle)....New finding. Usually I go there during the daytime when it is very crowded. Hope you continue a wonderful travel throughout Japan. All the best, Mayumi

“ Amazing knowledge and kindness ”

Mayumi had an amazing knowledge of Hiroshima and gave us information and experience at sights we would never have received on our own. She is a very gentle sole and was very kind and considerate - to give my husband and I the right amount of time to look at the peace museum Mayumi offered to make paper cranes with our young daughters. While they experienced many of the a-bomb artifacts, some of them were too horrific. Mayumi knew exactly how to manage our family experience

MAYUMI:

Dear Mechelle, I very much appreciate your heartwarming message. I was so fortunate to be able to spend some time with a wonderful family like yours. You are so lucky to have such beautiful and smart girls. They are just adorable. I just dream of the world where all the children can live in peace. Sol...how is the snow over there? Enjoy skiing very much? Did you have a chance to see monkeys bathing in hot springs, LoL. Please have lots of fun with the girls in cold & cool Japan!! Thank you so much. Mayumi
