“ Hitomi is an excellent guide! Highly recommend! ”

We had a great time in Nagasaki with Hitomi. Her English is excellent, and she is very easy going and flexible. She didn’t rush us along, found toilets when our small group of older people needed them, and walked at a pace that was comfortable. She took us to a great local restaurant for lunch, had us ride the street cars to get around, and made us feel more like locals than tourists. Hitomi was one of our best guides in Japan and we highly recommend her to tourists from the United States.

Hitomi:

Dear Cynthia, Thank you so much for your kind review. It was such a pleasure to show you around my favorite city. And thank you for your corporation during the tour, it made the tour go smooth. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your lunch at the local restaurant. The streetcar to the museum was packed with people! I'm glad you felt it more like locals, it was an experience(^^) Please come back to Kyushu again, I want to show you more of interesting places! Hitomi

“ Our guide Hitomi ”

Hitomi gave us a two day tour of Nagasaki which was very informative. She helped us choose great spots do visit. Her preparations ensured an excellent tour. Hitomi made the history of Dejima came alive. She chose an excellent restaurant for the Nagasaki specialty Chan-pon Hitomi guided us through the Atom Bomb memorial describing Nagasaki’s saddest day, and showing us how Nagasaki’s recovery is an example for the world.

Hitomi:

It was such a pleasure spending time with you both. I really enjoy having conversation and sharing some thoughts. It was a first time that I took my guest to Nyokodo and Dr.Nagai's memorial hall, and I was actually touched by that. I hope you will find the book in English or you will be able to read it in Japanese in a future. And I'm glad you liked the restaurants, I really liked the curry! Arigatougozaimashita, hope to see you two again! Hitomi

“ An Absolutely Delightful Day ”

Review by Jo: Hitomi is a marvelous guide: thoughtful, thorough, knowledgeable and flexible. She was able to adjust to the fact that she was guiding 3 folks in their 70’s with walking issues and provide us with doable experiences. We had a wonderful lunch at an historic Nagasaki restaurant mid-day that was so much fun. She has a great sense of humor and we would not hesitate to use Hitomi again or to highly recommend her to others. Thank you Hitomi for an educational and comfortable day. We invite you to come visit us in Alaska! //------------// Review by Eleanor: Hitomi provided a very personally designed tour for our group of three Alaskans. She had relevant background anecdotes from a western/eastern perspective. When we asked for a change in our intended itinerary she quickly a... read more

Hitomi:

Dear Jo and Eleanor Thank you so much for your heartwarming review. I am really glad that I could support your day in Nagasaki. Yes, the food there was great and we were so lucky to have our seats so fast! I believe it was your lucky day including having the beautiful weather. And I also wanted to thank you for sharing your precious time and your story in the atomic bomb museum. It is tough and not a fun thing to do, but I have a great respect for people who spend their time to learn the fact. Thank you. Now I'm very curious and interested to see Alaska and of course Juneau! (it does look like Nagasaki! amazing. Hitomi

“ Visiting the Nagasaki Peace Park Museum ”

It was a reminder of the tremendous sufferings of war brought to the unknowing population. Wars started by politicians and generals... sufferings and loss of lives in the end for all mankind.. Miss Hitomi conveyed through her heartfelt explanations and narratives the sufferings of the Japanese people...

Hitomi:

Hello Hi san, Thank you for the review! It was a big pleasure to guide you around the city and I was happy to be able to share time with you. Visiting Gunkanjima was quite interesting although we weren't able to land the island. I think Nagasaki is one of the most interesting places to visit in Japan and we can learn so much from the history of Nagasaki, the war, religions, the national seclusion.. Thank you for taking my tour, hope you make it to Takachiho next time! Hitomi
