“ We had the most remarkable family tour with Kazumi taking us to Miyajima Island and Hiroshima ”

We travelled from Kyoto to Hiroshima and met at Kazumi at the station and she came across as very friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate. She is a native of Hiroshima and truly cared about us, and did her best to make this trip memorable. We visited Miyajima Island first and spend the afternoon visiting Hiroshima. She was very accommodative and adjusted our itinerary to our liking. She introduced us to the Miyajima Island street food paradise in Japan and later for lunch she took us to a place that serves okonomiyaki in Hiroshima. It was a moving experience visiting the Atomic Bomb Dome, Ground Zero, The Children’s Peace Monument, Cenotaph and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Kazumi:

Thank you for your great review, Binu. It was a pleasure time since the beginning to the end. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour and Okonomiyaki. You were all nice and lovely to be with. Please say thank you to your family, too. Thank you and take care. Kazumi

“ Great Tour of Hiroshima ”

Kazumi took my wife and I on a great tour of Hiroshima. She picked us up at the cruise terminal and took us around to all the sights. We also enjoyed a wonderful local lunch with her. Her English was outstanding.

Kazumi:

Hi, Chris and Helene. Thank you for your great review! I am glad that you enjoyed a day in Hiroshima although it rained all day. I was surprised at number of the countries you have been to. I hope you will have a great time in the places you visit in the future. Thank you again. Kazumi

“ Hiroshima 1-Day World Heritage Tour ”

Kazumi was a joy to work with! Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the tour was amazing. She entertained us with her stories and brought the history alive. We also enjoyed the okonomiyaki that she introduced us to on Miyajima Island. We will always have happy memories of the day we spent with her.

Kazumi:

Thank you for your lovely review, Peter. I was happy to share my time with you. I enjoyed things we discussed. I am glad that you enjoyed Okonomiyaki. I hope Siew can find Taiyaki (fish shaped red bean paste cake) somewhere, sometimes. Please say thank you to her as well. Thank you very much for visiting Hiroshima this time. Kazumi

“ Kazumi is a gem! ”

My husband and I just completed a wonderful half-day tour of Hiroshima with Kazumi. She is extremely knowledgeable, has excellent English, accommodated all of our requests for sights to see and transportation, responded promptly with suggestions while we were negotiating the tour, and to top it off, took us to a fun Japanese restaurant for the local Hiroshima lunch of okonomiyaki pancake. We never would have found this restaurant on our own! Thanks Kazumi for a great day! You are A+++++++++++!

Kazumi:

It was nice to meeting to you both, Janet and Bill! It was a lovely day from the beginning. It was a good coincidence you know where I used to live in the State. I am so glad I could share my knowledge with you. It was only a 4 hour tour but I will never forget you. Hope you have a great time in Korea and rest of your trip. Thank you. Kazumi

“ Great family day in Hiroshima ”

Family day trip: Kazumi met us at the train station in the morning. We tok a local train (20 min) + boat (7 min) to the sacred island (Memorial). Beautiful place with shrines, temple, pagoda - lots of history from our excellent guide. Wild deer (very friendy animals) followed us in the streets, the kids love it. A beautiful and peaceful place. Sakura flowers in the spring and maple trees turning colors in the fall. After a great lunch on the island (large vegetable cabbage/egg pancakes with meat/shrimp and saucetopping, very tasty) we went back to Hiroshima city. We visited the place the bomb was dropped (550 meters above us), then different memorial parks with both art and sculptures. Kazumi told many stories, very knowlegdeable and sweet. The end stop was the Hiroshima Muse... read more
