“ 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.


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!


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

“ Great fun xpence ”

Excellent guide.


Dear Ron san I really appreciate your kind review. Our tour was in the middle of 10 days holiday in Japan. All Japanese people were getting too excited. I truly felt the unexpected often happens in life. If I had let all of you go without entering the museum, it would have deserved seppuku. However fortunately we were able to see the exhibits there. This tour became an unforgettable memory for me. All the best Azusa Arita

“ Highly recommend ”

She was well organised flexible and friendly, resulting in a very enjoyable day in Hiroshima.I highly recommend her.


Dear Beverley san Thank you so much for your kind message and a great time I spent with all your humorous people in Hiroshima. You are the first visitor that I have ever met to have the courage to try a blowfish. Please be careful there are some dangerous food in Japanese cuisine. Every January about 1300 Japanese people die after choking on rice cakes. We tend to risk our lives for delicious food. Please enjoy safe Japanese food and have a nice trip ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita

“ Very polite and flexible guide ”

We were a group of four and she pickend us up at the cruiseport, right in time. She showed us the best spots of Hiroshima including a trip to beautiful Miyajima, which we could highly recommend. Behause our time was limited due to the early departure of our cruise ship, we had to cut the prorgram, but it was no problem for Azusa. She was very flexible and it did not bother her,even to give up lunch and take only time for a coffee.Thanks for all, Azusa, it was a great trip!
