“ Amazing tour! ”

My husband and I booked a tour of Hiroshima with Kazumi and are so glad we did. She was very knowledgeable, kind and fun! We learned a lot about the city and the historic events that took place; it felt like we were touring the city with an old friend. We highly recommend Kazumi for a tour!

Kazumi:

Thank you for your lovely review. Thank you for coming all the way to Hiroshima. It was a short time but good to share my knowledge with you. It was good experience for me to have young couples like you. Good luck with your future. Kazumi

“ A wonderful day around Hiroshima with Kazumi! ”

Kazumi was a very kind and gracious guide. She met us promptly at 9 at the Hiroshima station and had a full day of activities around Miyajima and Hiroshima for us. She was quite knowledgeable and friendly and even took us to a delicious Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki for lunch. We would definitely recommend her

Kazumi:

Thank you for your dream review, Juan. It was my pleasure to show you around Hiroshima. Luckily, we could see the Trii gate in Miyajima. I am glad you enjoyed Okonomiyaki. Maybe you can try Hiroshima ramen next time! All of your family are so nice and I really appreciated they could accept me the day. Thank you and take care. Kazumi

“ Excellent Tour Guide for Hiroshima/Miyagima Island ”

Kazumi was fantastic! We had a great tour of the Hiroshima Peace Museum with her-it was a somber experience. Although we are Japanese-American, both of my parents were in Japan during the atomic bombing of Hiroshima so it was extremely sad to see the effects. We had an absolutely delicious lunch of okonomiyaki-Kazumi suggested we get 3 different ones and we all share so that we can try different ones-what a great suggestion and it was so yummy!! Miyagima Island was beautiful! We thought the Torii gate would be covered for renovation but because of the festival it wasn't so we were able to take beautiful pictures there! We had a wonderful day with Kazumi!

Kazumi:

Hi Alice. Thank you for your lovely review. I appreciate that I could share the day with you. Yes, you were so lucky that we could see the gate on the day. It was very hot so I was wondering if you could enjoy the rest of the day after the tour. Did you find the Rirakkuma cafe in Miyajima and how was the ferry back to your hotel? I hope you are having a good time in Tokyo and safe back to your home. Please say thank you for your daughters, too. Kazumi

“ Miyajima and Hiroshima ”

Kazumi is an awesome guide. Fantastic value for money. She is friendly, knowledgeable on the history of the area and has lots of interesting factoids. Her english is excellent and allowed us to see and experience a part of Japan in an efficient but very enjoyable way.

Kazumi:

Thank you for your great review, Stacey. I am so glad that you enjoy the day in Hiroshima. It was a big group for me but I really appreciate all of you let me guide and show you around Hiroshima. Please come again, cycling the islands in Hiroshima next time! Thank you and please send my appreciation to your husband and friends. Kazumi

“ A fantastic day! ”

My family of six had only one day to spend in the Hiroshima area. I am so happy we had Kazumi as a guide to Miyajima Island and to the Peace Park in Hiroshima. She is very personable, and my family felt very comfortable with her. Kazumi was very flexible with our itinerary, and had other suggestions for us for things to do once our tour with her was done. The time with her was well spent!

Kazumi:

Thank you for your lovely review, Karen. It’ my pleasure to guide you a day. All of your family are very nice and talk with. Please say thank you to your husband and kids. Kazumi
