“ Fun and knowledgeable guide ”

Keiko was a very professional guide who took us around to the major Hiroshima sites and museums. She was very sensitive to our needs and was very responsive to our questions. She was personable and able to talk about culture, history, and politics - and her own family and spiritual life in Japan. She was quite wonderful, you will be lucky to have her as your guide!

“ Excellent private tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima Island!! ”

Our group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our day with Keiko touring Hiroshima and Miyajima Island. She shared her vast knowledge of the historic sites but also included fun facts about the cities. I only wish I could bring her along to all the cities we visited. Thank you for a wonderful day!

“ Day tour for parent ”

My dad wanted to visit Hiroshima and I booked him for a day tour with Keiko. He enjoyed the tour and said that, although he could have visited the sites on his own, he would not have appreciated it as much if not for the stories and context that Keiko shared. He also shared with me after the tour that he also learnt a little more about Japanese culture and customs from their conversations. He commented that he would recommend her to friends if they needed a guide for Hiroshima. Reservations were very easy and Keiko was very responsive and accommodating when we were arranging the tour. Thank you Keiko for showing him a good time at Hiroshima!

Keiko:

Thank you Ken, the tour with your father was full of fun and delightful conversation. Lots of questions and opinion exchange about Japanese history and culture. I loved all the conversation very much!! Please say hello to Tony. It was really nice to meet him!

“ Hiroshima highlights ”

Keiko is a delightful person and a thoughtful, knowledgeable guide. We had easy and helpful communication prior to our arrival and Keiko helped us devise a plan for our short visit to Hiroshima. We are a family of 5, with children aged 16,13 and 10 - she gave us a fascinating and insightful tour of the Peace Park and Memorial museum, explaining in an accessible way - for all of us - the key historical events. This is a must see experience and made so much more memorable by Keiko’s sensitive and personal approach. Understanding our love of food & interest in trying the local cuisine she kindly took us to a local restaurant where we ate THE most fabulous okonomiyaki and were able to enjoy a truly authentic local Japanese experience. We spent a second day with Keiko to see Hiroshima castle an... read more

Keiko:

Thank you Meg, I'm happy that you liked the okonomiyaki restaurant!! Food is one of the most important things especially traveling in a foreign country. I hope your memory in Hiroshima will become a highlight of your trip :) I was also glad that your children listened to my explanation very carefully and that they were interested in learning the history. Japan's summer is very hot. Please take care and enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan!

“ Best guide during Japan trip ”

We had four different guides in four different cities in Japan, and Keiko was our favorite. Our group spent a whole day with her exploring Miyajima. She met us at our hotel in Hiroshima and then brought us back to the hotel. We had a big group - 12 of us in total - with ages ranging from 2 to 78 years old, and everyone thought she was the best guide. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she was very friendly and patient. Also, she is very organized and a great communicator - I had several questions and we exchanged many messages, and she was always very quick to respond. If you are looking for a guide in Hiroshima, look no further!

Keiko:

Thank you Carolina, it was a great day for me, too!! I love to have a relaxing tour and I enjoyed all the street food tour. Glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour a lot. When you eat oysters, please remember me and Hiroshima!

“ Hiroshima and Miyajima ”

What do I say about Keiko.. She is a lovely person in addition to being an excellent tour guide. She told an immense amount of details and little nuggets without which our experience would have been grossly incomplete. The details of the Itsukushima shrine, the Buddha teample at the top of the hill, the Atom Bomb museum and the survivir stories.. It gave a very real and tangible feel to the visit. we not only asked her about the sites but also in general a variety things about Japan and Japanese culture that she answered with a smile. While she always had an eye on the watch she never once hurried us during the trip.. When we were at Miyajima we ran into one of the families for whom she had been a guide the previous day and the warmth and friendliness wit which the faily greeted her and s... read more

Keiko:

Thank you very much Jayakumar, I feel very honored to have such a warm comment from you. As a local tour guide in Hiroshima, I'm happy that you were impressed by your visit to Hiroshima. Hiroshima is a very important place to think about the way to make a peaceful world. Let's make this sad experience a catalyst to make a better world and let peace bloom all over the world!

“ Couldn't ask for more ”

Keiko is easily the most competent and accommodating guide I have met. Throughout our tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, she provided very detailed and comprehensive information, and was willing to talk about the very poignant aspects of the atomic bomb attack. Keiko has a lovely fun and bubbly personality, and exceptional English speaking skills. She paced the day perfectly for us, never being pushy about timing which was nice. For anyone planning to hire an English speaking guide, I could not recommend her more highly. She was great!. Thank you Keiko, arigatogozaimashita

Keiko:

Thank you Lindsay, you all were so nice and I really enjoyed the tour with you. The history of Hiroshima is sad but I believe we can make it a catalyst to get a peaceful world. Let peace bloom and please visit Japan again!!

“ A Wonderful Tour Guide Who Feels Like Family ”

My family and I took a half-day tour in Hiroshima with Keiko. From the very get-go, Keiko welcomed us warmly and talked with us easily, as though she were a long-lost family member and we were catching up. The insightful facts she gave us made us want to know even more about Hiroshima, and she was very patient throughout the whole tour, despite the fact that we often took shopping detours. Thank you so much Keiko!

Keiko:

Thank you Deeani, I felt the same way!! It was really a pleasant day for me, too. I'm glad to know that you were more interested in Hiroshima, which all the tour guides want to hear from customer. Thank you again and enjoy Japan!!

“ Great day out ”

Keiko was friendly and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed our time on Miyajima island and in Hiroshima city with her. Funny but important tip , she advised us the deer on Miyajima island like eating paper so to keep our JR rail passes in a safe place . We then witness a tourist trying to wrestle for her pass back from a deer who had it firmly in its mouth ! Going to Ground zero where the A Bomb exploded and the Peace museum were also highlights

Keiko:

Thank you Rachel, the scenery where a traveler was wrestling for her JR pass , which is the most important thing besides her life and passport, was a highlight for me, too. Yes, it was a fun day. I had a great day, too, Thank you again, Rachel!

“ Best Tour Guide in Japan! ”

Keiko spoke excellent English. She has a great sense of humor. She planned a perfect itinerary for us. We saw a lot but weren’t rushed from place to place. We enjoyed lunch at a local restaurant that tourists and large tour groups would never find. We spent a wonderful day with Keiko and highly recommend her without any reservations.

Keiko was very knowledgeable, accommodating with excellent English that made the tour interesting, highly educational with many facts that would have skipped us if we had done the tour on our own. She was solicitous of us considering our limitations with regards long walks.

Keiko:

Thank you Marie. Sharing our opinions and talking about our different cultures & history are always exciting moments for me, too. And I believe this experience will be a small piece of a better world. It was a wonderful day for me, too. Thank you again, Marie!

Keiko is terrific! She is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and speaks excellent English (ask her about “15” v “50”). She took us to the Peace Memorial area and Miyajima island and made sure we saw all the key important aspects. She shared information on local life and culture. And she is a huge Hiroshima Carp baseball fan!

“ Wouldn’t have wanted to see the area any other way! ”

Keiko was great, if we hadn’t of done the tour with her we would not have appreciated the area and the sights nearly as much. She provided great in depth detail of the monuments and personal stories which made it even more interesting. She took us to a restaurant that had the best food we would have never found ourselves! We would recommend keiko to anyone who wants to really understand and appreciate the history of Hiroshima and the island :)

Keiko:

Thank you Cassidy, I had a great day with you, too! I'm glad that you chose Hiroshima as your destination to learn about war history and I'm happy that you enjoyed Okonomi-yaki very much. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Japan has lots of delicious local foods :)

“ Full day private tour with Keiko ”

We were fortunate to have a full-day, private tour of Hiroshima with Keiko. Even before we met, Keiko was incredibly helpful and communicative (via email), enabling us to plan for a special and meaningful experience. We were an extended family group of 10 persons, ranging from young teens to grandmother, and Keiko kept us all engaged and together. We had a wonderful day and for the rest of the trip, the kids asked when we could meet Keiko again. Thank you again, Keiko!

Keiko:

Hi Katherine, thank you for your warm message. The tour with you was so much fun for me too. I was happy your children listened to my explanation very carefully and I hope my tour was both fun and educational one for them. Let's be small pieces of a better world. May peace prevail all over the world.

“ A day in Hiroshima ”

Keiko was fabulous. She communicated with me a couple of days before the meeting time to confirm all details, and made that process very easy by meeting us on the train platform. Her arrangements to meet all my initial requests (from private van/driver hire to style of food for lunch) was outstanding. Her English was great, and she was able to engage our 4 teenagers really well. Her personal stories were very moving - something you couldn't get if you just took yourself around. Thanks Keiko for a perfect day in Hiroshima!

Keiko:

Thank you Andrea! I was amazed how carefully your kids listened to my explanations and I enjoyed all the conversation with you all. It was an amazing day for me, too. Hiroshima's history is sad but I am proud that Hiroshima can send out warm messages to the world now. May peace prevail all over the world!

“ Thank you for giving us wonderful memories of Hiroshima! ”

Right from the very beginning when I contacted Keiko regarding the attractions I wanted to visit and the activities I wanted to see, Keiko patiently answered every question I had and offered valuable advice. When she brought us to the historical attractions such as the A-dome site, Kintaikyo Bridge and the Itsukushima Shrine, she always gave interestingly detailed information and made sure we had time to take lovely photos. Thank you so much for welcoming us warmly to Hiroshima and letting us feel at home, away from home! We really enjoyed these 4 days with you :D Eileen Singapore

Hi Eileen, Thank you for your message! I really enjoyed those 4 days with you, too. You two are charming and fun people to attend and I enjoyed our conversation, taking lots of pictures and learning how to take lovely pictures. Thank you again and I hope we will stay in touch!!

“ We were able to know where the atomic bomb dropped, the remnants of the building, the museum is full of details wherein 1 touched me the most - the little boy who died while riding the bike. ”

She was an interesting, active, polite & eloquent tour guide. I will recommend Triple Lights to my family & friends who will need a tour guide in their journey to discover more of Japan.

Keiko:

Thank you, Vienna! We had a really great time in Hiroshima. This tour visits an educational peace park and a fun Miyajima island, which I think has a good balance. Glad to hear you liked it! May peace prevail in the whole world.

“ An amazingly knowledgeable lady with a beautiful personality ”

Keiko was amazingly knowledgeable right from the start. She connected straight away with our 12 year old son. Her guidance and knowledge of the history, culture and sights was faultless. We had a beautiful day on Miyajima- I would love to have her guide our whole trip in Japan.

Keiko:

Hello Jodi, Thank you for your review! I love kids and I really enjoyed everything he asked and talked to me. We talked a lot and laughed a lot together, which I believe will be a small piece of a peaceful world. Typhoon is approaching. Please stay safe and enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan!

“ Superb and charming guide ”

Keiko was my guide in Miyajima and Hiroshima over 2 days. I had initially cancelled the week before as my costs travelling round Japan were mounting. I eventually decided to ask Keiko to be my guide again and it was the best decision. Keiko is a superb guide. She does her job well. She's full if knowledge, she navigates the city well and is very well organised. This is what one expects and she delivers. She guided me in Miyajima and I had what has been a standout experience. It was just magical. The Hiroshima your was also superb. The walk around the peace park was very moving and Keiko shared a lot of information that really brought it to life.

I was very lucky to have such a kind and knowledge guide, she was very helpful in explaining everything in detail, her English iwas perfect, she assisted me in taking as many pictures as I wished, the day was raining, nevertheless she made every effort that I don’t get wet. At the end of the tour, she took me to the railway station and made sure that I don’t miss my train back to Tokyo. I consider Keiko to be the perfect asset for Triplights.
