The weather on the day was very fine and I was pleased that all your group could see no more beautiful Mt.Fuji at every visiting spots with the shape of different angle.

“ Hiroshima Day Tour ”

I organised this tour on behalf of a teenager who is fascinated with the Yamato battleship so this tour had to be very customised and Kashima-San lived up to the challenge! The boy really enjoyed himself. The guide spoke good English, very polite and respectful and he was flexible with the schedule. In fact the family said that they would highly recommend Kashima-San to others who visits Hiroshima!

KASHIMA:

I-Lin san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. It was great time for me to support your mother and your family for Hiroshima tour. We visited Yamato-museum where we could see the models (1/10) of Battleship named “Yamato” and lots of other ships and actual objects of submarine & airplane “Zero fighter plane”. There are many historical background explanations, photos and actual objects & ship models exhibited which are historically very important ones manufactured before and during World War2.

“ Great guide ”

Had a great day with Kashima - our itinerary and the numbers in our group changed several times and he was so accommodating and nice about it. We saw the highlights we wanted and some great places we didn’t know about!

KASHIMA:

Hollie san, Thank you very much for your warm and utmost review for me. Our original tour plan was one day tour on Oct.12 for Hakone & Yokohama. However, unfortunately, the biggest typhoon named 19th hit Japan in Kanto area from Oct.11 to Oct.12. Under this circumstance, you and your friends were kindly flexible to see the storm situation by communication with me and we could set the alternate tour on Oct.13 by making several alternate tour options prepared. In the end, we could enjoy Tokyo tour visiting Imperial palace, Zojoji, Tokyo tower, Harajuku, Omotesando and Shinjuku Golden Gai with beer drinking as final enjoyment under sunny weather on the day. I am very much pleased that you and your friends could enjoy the tour even under this unexpected situation. During the tour, we coul... read more
