I'm Kazumi. I am a qualified tour guide.I have been guiding Hiroshima since 2010.
Through guiding Hiroshima, I can give my guests my knowledge of this area and Japanese culture. At the same time, I can learn their understanding of Japan and the differences between our culture and theirs. Which is very interesting. I also believe that meeting with local people is the best way to know the area. I was born and grew up in Hiroshima. I am very happy to give you wonderful time and memories in Hiroshima. I am really looking forward to hearing from you.

Ms. Kazumi is really fun, energetic and kind person. She also can speak English fluently and gave us a lot of informations about hiroshima also with its history. She gave us a lots of options which to go first and gave her opinions. We went to a memorian hall, peace park, museum, etc in the morning. At lunch we we planned to eat okonomiyaki, but for some reason the places were booked so we can’t enter the shop. She asked us if we want to eat lunch near there or go to the Miyajima. We decided to go to Miyajima and eat our lunch there. She recommended us Oyster food in Miyajima. It was really fantastic! Also she recommend the the best Momiji Manju souvenirs in hiroshima (for me). Despite the bad weather, we really enjoyed spending time with her! Won’t forget this amazing experience!
Thank you for your wonderful comment, Nicolleta. I was happy to be your guide although so many unexpected things happened today. You and your family are very easy going and accepted many changes. Today's experience actually made me think I need a lot of options for any matters during tours as a guide. Thank you for a picture of us and good luck for your future. Kazumi
We booked a tour of Miyajima and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park/Museum with Kazumi. Kazumi met us at the Hiroshima station transfer gate (we came in from Kyoto by Shinkansen) and then took the train to the ferry to Miyajima. Kazumi was excellent in explaining about the ‘floating’ Torii gate and the Itsukushima Shrine and the resident deer there. We had a pleasant lunch on the island at a delicious Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki restaurant. We all enjoyed the lunch and only wish we had a restaurant like this at home. After lunch, we headed over to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park/Museum and Kazumi explained the sites around the park. It was a somber experience but one I think all should see. Kazumi is a very nice person with excellent english and we all (myself, wife and two sons)... read more
Lloyd. Thank you very much for your great review. I am glad you enjoyed my tour. It was my pleasure to be a guide for a happy family like you. I want my kids like your sons. Thank you again and please say hello to your wife and sons. Best, Kazumi
WE booked Kazumi for 5 hours when our cruise docked at Hiroshima in late May. She was already waiting for us when we disembarked, and did a good job explaining the various sites of the atomic blast in Hiroshima. She then took us to a local restaurant which served Okonomiyaki (fried noodles on hot plate). Thereafter we took a ferry to Miyajima Island, where we strolled along the beach and enjoyed the sights. We had a great time in Hiroshima/Miyajima, thanks to the professional service of Kazumi.. Kazumi is highly responsible, courteous, and knows the local scene very well as she was born and bred in Hiroshima. She also speaks very good English as she has lived abroad for a number of years. I have no hesitation in recommending Kazumi to any future travellers.
Thank you very much for your great review. I also enjoyed talking with you and your family. I could learn a lot from you and had a good experience as a guide. Please give my best regards to your family. I hope to see you sometime soon, maybe in Hong Kong! Kazumi
