We had a great day with Kazumi. She is very knowledgeable about Hiroshima and a pleasant guide.
My wife and I were fortunate to have spent a day and a half with Kazumi. One day we spent in Hiroshima and the next day was a half day in Miyajima. Kaz is a delightful, well informed, energetic wonderful person. Her English is excellent and local knowledge superb. We loved her smile and warmth. I would highly recommend touring with Kazumi!
Thank you for your great review, Joel! I am so happy that you enjoyed my tours. It was my pleasure to share my knowledge with you and I really enjoyed conversation with you both. I am looking forward to your paintings. Hope you enjoy Hakone and rest of your staying in Japan. Kazumi
Kazumi was on time to meet us at the station - this was really helpful as we didnt know the station. She was very patient with the group and quickly saw that we all had different interests. She gave us a lot of very interesting information but not too much. She had just the right speed with us. A very pleasant, easy and likable young woman. Without her we would not have seen or understood half the terrible history of Hiroshima
Thank you for your wonderful comment, Anita. Congratulations for the Victory of South Africa in Rugby World Cup. I am sure you all had a great time in Stadium. I was very happy to spend and share my time and knowledge with you. It was very interesting to know about South Africa. I hope I can visit you in South Africa sometime soon. Please say hello to your husband and friends. Love, Kazumi
Was unable to do the tour (not able to do the cruise because of hurricane) -- but Izumi still got in touch and sounded so caring. Will book with her again in the future whenever we plan to go to Hiroshima.
Thank you for your review, Julieta. I am sorry that you couldn’t come to Japan because of Typhoon. I really understand your disappointment. I hope you can come to Japan and Hiroshima near future. I will wait for you here. Kazumi
Kazumi was a terrific guide. She was well informed, relaxed, and enjoyable. Our group of six had a wonderful day.
Thank you for your review, Marian. I am glad to hear all of you enjoyed my tour. I appreciated you accepted me in your group. Please send all your friends my appreciation. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
