Thank you Yuji for showing us Hiroshima... You are a fantastic knowledgeable guide & made our day very enjoyable... Thinking ahead, getting good spots for photographs & running around ahead of us to reserve a table at lunch saved time & makes the day run so much more smoothly... Also a big thank you for going out of your way to make our 2yo daughter Lola laugh at every opportunity... She still remembers how to say your name... :) I would recommend Yuji to anyone traveling to Hiroshima... Thank You...

Yuji:
Hi Ben, It was also a very nice day for me with your family.Especially, my angle Lola. I am very glad to hear from you such a nice review. I am always wish for your family's good health and happiness just in front of the Sleeping Buddha at Dishoin Buddhist temple in Miyajima.(^_-)-?
