“ Hiroshima and Miyajima Island ”

We met Michi at the train station in Hiroshima. We had traveled on the Shinkansen from Osaka for the day. We found the Peace Memorial and Museum to be sobering, and Michi allowed us enough time to absorb the information, and particularly relate it for our two teenagers. She told us her legacy story which was powerful. Lunch was terrific, okonomiyaki, a Hiroshima specialty. For the afternoon, we went to Miyajima island to see the shrine and visit some shops. Michi never rushed us, and gave us lots of information about the area and the culture. We had an enjoyable day and recommend Michi highly.

Michiru:

Hi Nanette, Thank you for taking your time to write such a great review. I was really glad sharing time with you in my hometown, Hiroshima. Also thank you for sharing the experience of a 17 year-old girl. Hope you come back to see the brand-new floating tori gate after the Olympic games and find more charms of Hiroshima. With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Hiroshima & Miayajima ”

We are two well travelled “Senior” couples and fairly fussy too! We spent the afternoon and evening in Miyajima and the next full day visiting the “must sees” in Hiroshima. Michi is a knowledgeable guide whose company we enjoyed. We have no hesitation in recommending her.

“ Two World Heritage Sites in Hiroshima ”

We had a very good day with Michi. We started at the Hiroshima Peace Museum , Park & Dome, Michi was able to explain many things & show us various points of interest that would be missed if one was trying to do it on their own. We then went by boat (additional cost but worth it, saving time & providing another perspective to our experience in Hiroshima) to Miyajima Island and spent the afternoon there. This is a beautiful place & rated one of top 3 tourist spots in Japan. Michi had a very good command of English & her commentary was very good, as was her knowledge of the places we visited & the culture. Based on our experience we would have no hesitation recommending Michi's services as a guide.

Michiru:

Hi Peter, I'm glad that you chose me as your guide in Hiroshima. I really worried we might stuck in the mid of the crowd, but we were truly lucky from the beginning to the end. Also we could enjoy the beauty of Setouchi, the Seto Inland Sea. Sorry for the monkeys in Miyajima, especially 2 left ones on the island, but we are safe now. Hope your coming back to Hiroshima to see a brand-new floating tori gate! With Lots of Love, Michi

“ Amazing Experience ”

We had a wonderful tour with Michi! She exceeded every expectation, was extremely knowledgeable about Hiroshima and surrounding areas as well as Japanese history. I highly recommend requesting the A Bomb legacy lecture from her, it gives a very personal touch to have a better understanding of that day from someone who lived through it. Fantastic tour! Highly recommend for anyone who would like a personal touch on seeing Hiroshima and Miyajima! Thanks Michi!

Michiru:

Hi Dena, I also had a brilliant time with you & your family. Thank you for sharing a story of a girl who was under the mushroom cloud. I would like to see you again and explore Hiroshima attractions with your girls! With Lots of Love, Michi
