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!
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
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
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
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!
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
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.
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
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!
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
Kazumi is a great guide!
Thank you for your review, Zachary. I am glad to hear that the guests enjoyed my tour. They are all nice and I was happy to share my knowledge with them. They enjoyed Okonomiyaki very much. Please send my appreciation to the guests. I am looking forward to your request again. Thank you. Kazumi
Kazumi was super friendly and energetic and was very well informed on all the sites visited. Her english is very good and she took the time to answer all of out questions . Overall my family and I greatly enjoyed having her tour us.
Thank you for your great comment, Paola. All of your family were so good to be with. I am very glad you enjoyed my tour. I hope you enjoyed deer in Nara as well next day. You were the first guests for me from South America. It was a good experience for me. Please say thank you to Sergio, Olivia, Ema and Antonia. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
Thank you for giving my tour 5 stars, Richard. I am glad that you enjoyed Hiroshima. Please say thank you to your wife and children. I hope you have a great time rest of your trip in Asia and safe back to England. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
My family (wife and two kids 14 and 12) and I had an excellent tour with Kazumi in Hiroshima. We took a day trip to Hiroshima from Kyoto and Kazumi promptly met us at the train station to begin our tour. We toured Miyajima Island which have sacred and docile deer that roam freely and enjoy the company of people. Kazumi showed us around the Itsukushima shrine on the island and she was very knowledgable about the history, culture, and details of the shrine and island. We toured peace park and Kazumi pointed out locations, structures and buildings with historically relevant commentary. We highly recommend Kazumi as your Hiroshima tour guide. Jon Texas
Thank you for your great review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. I am also appreciated you could accepted me as your guide. Your family is so good to talk with. I hope Zina got her headache better now. Did Sarah get her favorite cheesecake? Please say thank you to all of your family. Kazumi
Kazumi is an excellent guide. She explained us very interesting things about Hiroshima and we spent a beautiful and relaxing afternoon in Miyajima. Kazumi is very kind and we had really fun with her. If we come back we’ll call her again! Thank you for a wonderful day.
Thank you for your great review, Socorro. All of your family were really kind and fun to talk with. I was happy to share the day with you yesterday. Thank you for your pictures, too. My kids were excited to see your pictures and interested in your country. Yes, please call me anytime when you come back to Japan. Until then, please take care and say thank you to your family. Kazumi
We had a great day with Kazumi . Ver informative and lively lady. She guided us to the sights of Hiroshima by train. We would never have been able to negotiate the routes by ourselves😊. Thanks Kazumi
Thank you for your great review, Jennifer. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was good we had little rain during the tour. It rained heavily after the tour. Please say thank you to your family. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
Kazumi greeted us with a smile and we knew we were in for a great day and experience! She took us everywhere seemlessly as we moved from train to cab to ferry. Kazumi, her spirit, her knowledge and her expertise made our day trip just perfect. We recommend her highly. Midge and bob
Thank you for your excellent review, Midge and Bob. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour with me. Sushi for lunch was great quality, wasn't it? You both are so active and I respect your lifestyle. I could learn a lot from this tour. Thank you for having me as a part of your tour. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
We travelled from Kyoto to Hiroshima and met at Kazumi at the station and she came across as very friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate. She is a native of Hiroshima and truly cared about us, and did her best to make this trip memorable. We visited Miyajima Island first and spend the afternoon visiting Hiroshima. She was very accommodative and adjusted our itinerary to our liking. She introduced us to the Miyajima Island street food paradise in Japan and later for lunch she took us to a place that serves okonomiyaki in Hiroshima. It was a moving experience visiting the Atomic Bomb Dome, Ground Zero, The Children’s Peace Monument, Cenotaph and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
Thank you for your great review, Binu. It was a pleasure time since the beginning to the end. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour and Okonomiyaki. You were all nice and lovely to be with. Please say thank you to your family, too. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
Kazumi took my wife and I on a great tour of Hiroshima. She picked us up at the cruise terminal and took us around to all the sights. We also enjoyed a wonderful local lunch with her. Her English was outstanding.
Hi, Chris and Helene. Thank you for your great review! I am glad that you enjoyed a day in Hiroshima although it rained all day. I was surprised at number of the countries you have been to. I hope you will have a great time in the places you visit in the future. Thank you again. Kazumi
Kazumi was a joy to work with! Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the tour was amazing. She entertained us with her stories and brought the history alive. We also enjoyed the okonomiyaki that she introduced us to on Miyajima Island. We will always have happy memories of the day we spent with her.
Thank you for your lovely review, Peter. I was happy to share my time with you. I enjoyed things we discussed. I am glad that you enjoyed Okonomiyaki. I hope Siew can find Taiyaki (fish shaped red bean paste cake) somewhere, sometimes. Please say thank you to her as well. Thank you very much for visiting Hiroshima this time. Kazumi
My husband and I just completed a wonderful half-day tour of Hiroshima with Kazumi. She is extremely knowledgeable, has excellent English, accommodated all of our requests for sights to see and transportation, responded promptly with suggestions while we were negotiating the tour, and to top it off, took us to a fun Japanese restaurant for the local Hiroshima lunch of okonomiyaki pancake. We never would have found this restaurant on our own! Thanks Kazumi for a great day! You are A+++++++++++!
It was nice to meeting to you both, Janet and Bill! It was a lovely day from the beginning. It was a good coincidence you know where I used to live in the State. I am so glad I could share my knowledge with you. It was only a 4 hour tour but I will never forget you. Hope you have a great time in Korea and rest of your trip. Thank you. Kazumi
Family day trip: Kazumi met us at the train station in the morning. We tok a local train (20 min) + boat (7 min) to the sacred island (Memorial). Beautiful place with shrines, temple, pagoda - lots of history from our excellent guide. Wild deer (very friendy animals) followed us in the streets, the kids love it. A beautiful and peaceful place. Sakura flowers in the spring and maple trees turning colors in the fall. After a great lunch on the island (large vegetable cabbage/egg pancakes with meat/shrimp and saucetopping, very tasty) we went back to Hiroshima city. We visited the place the bomb was dropped (550 meters above us), then different memorial parks with both art and sculptures. Kazumi told many stories, very knowlegdeable and sweet. The end stop was the Hiroshima Muse... read more
Thank you for your excellent review. I am glad that you enjoyed Hiroshima with me. Great weather helped our day as well. I was so impressed the life style of your country. You should be proud of your kids. They are so lovely. I was happy to share the time with you. Please say hi to all your family. Thank you and I really hope to visit you sometime soon. Kazumi
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Kazumi around Hiroshima and Miyajima Island. She was on time, kind, and very knowledgeable about her location and material. Tour was given in English and we enjoyed her company during the tour and the lunch she took us to. My friends and I all would recommend her to anyone looking to visit Hiroshima, having her as a guide allowed us to get far more out of both historical sites.
Thank you for your lovely review! I am glad you enjoyed my tour. I could learn what young people are interested in now. I had a great time with you all and felt like I am twenties! Please say hi to your friends. Loves, Kazumi
Great very warm and personal Kazumi made us feel like someone we known for a long time Absolutely loved her
From the start, Kazumi was a great guide. She was very flexible about where and how to meet me. She seemed to have a good plan for the day, and was very flexible and proactive in modifying it once she understood my particular interests -- I like shrines and temples, so we focused on those. Her knowledge about the history and culture of the area was impressive. Overall, the day was an excellent value, and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you, Kazumi
Hi Theresa Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour and had a safe journey back to Seattle. It was my pleasure to share a day with you. I hope you can keep travelling the world. Thank you and take care. Kazumi
Excellent guide. Good English. Well organised, gentle but fun. Thank you for a lovely day.
Thank you very much for your lovely comment, Christopher. It was lovely to be your guide here. I am glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. I am sorry for lunch time waiting time. I really enjoyed to hear the story of your country. I hope I can visit your country sometime soon. Please say thank you to Joanna as well. Take care. Kazumi
Kazumi was an excellent guide. Really personable and friendly and knowledgeable. Just like being guided around a town by a good friend who knows the area well. Good pace - not too fast or to slow - Kazumi adapted to our pace. We are a family of 6 and she was also great with our children. Very happy with Kazumi and happy to recommend her to anyone as a guide. Thank you Kazumi.
Thank you for your excellent review, Kim. I am glad that you enjoyed my tour. I was so happy to attend with your family. I was surprised at and inspired every story you could share with me. All of your family were so friendly and fun to talk with including Ethan. I showed your picture to my kids and they said they wanted to join the tour. Please say thank you all. I am looking forward to taking you to top of Mt Misen in Miyajima island next time. Thank you again and take care. Kazumi
We had an excellent time with kazumi. She is knowledgeable and easy to talk to. In addition, she also gave us helpful suggestions and even helped booked a tour for us on the next day when she was not with us. The restaurant choices she made were also really delicious and value for money.
Thank you for your excellent review, Charmaine. It was great being your guide for two days. It was first time for me to guide such a big group and Guide in Iwakuni area. I am glad that you enjoyed my tour and lunch. That tile noodle and chicken was so good, isn't it? It was very fun with all of you. Please say thank you to all other people and I hope see you again. Kazumi
We spent a day with Kazumi on the island. She was a fantastic guide and she answered all of the questions that we had! I would highly recommend her! I would definitely ask her to take you to her favorite coffee shop on the island. It was great!
Thank you for your wonderful comment! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the day with me and that Japanese cafe. I also had a great experience as a guide. Please say thank you to your wife, too. I hope you are fine with much snow in your area. Kazumi
My wife and I and our teenage daughter thoroughly enjoyed this day with Kazumi. We asked Kazumi to combine two of her tours and she was happy to do this we got to see the shrine on Miyajima before heading into Hiroshima and the peace Park area which was incredibly moving. Kazumi is both knowledgeable and engaging and she shared a lot of personal stories and we also had a lot of laughs. Great day highly recommend Kazumi.
We only had a short time ...but had a wonderful time ! Thanks!
Thank you for your comment, Alan and Carol. Yes, it was very short but I am glad that you enjoyed the day in Hiroshima. Have a safe and great cruise. Please come to Hiroshima again! See you soon! Kazumi
We just returned from our cruise around Japan. One of the ports of call was Hiroshima And here our guide was Kazumi - very nice, courteous young woman with excellent English who was very accommodative to our needs. She met us in the port We wanted to visit Miyajima Island and Peace Memorial Park during our tour. As my husband has problems walking for extended period of time Kazumi recommended to take a taxi to get faster to the ferry and reduce walking time. When we got to the island we just strolled around Itsukushima Shrine, took pictures and enjoyed the scenery. We wish we could see this shrine during the high tide but that day high tide was available only in the evening. Kazumi was giving us a lot of explanation about this shrine, it's importance and traditions of Shinto Shrines. We ... read more
Thank you for your fantastic review, Tatyana. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour and could finish your cruise and come back safely. It was good that you didn't catch a cold after that rain. I hope Bob is fine as well. Thank you for your maple syrup. My kids love it so much. Thank you again and hope to see you sometime soon. Kazumi
The Miyajima tour was the first of two tours that I took with Kazumi and the second tour were visits to my family monument in the Saeki district and the Peace Park. Both tours were excellent, but the visit to my family monument was special and this is where Kazumi shined. Kazumi arrived at my hotel at the prearranged time and we took the JR train, then Ferry to Miyajima. We arrived at high tide and the water covered the entire base of the Itsukushima Shrine. After a short lunch, we were off to Mt Misen and after two tram rides, we were ready to hike to the top. Kazumi indicated that it would take about 1 hr to the top, but I read that it was a 30-min hike. Kazumi was right, it took a good hour to reach the top. The cool October weather was perfect. The uphill hike is mainly on stone ... read more
Hi Lyle Thank you very much for your great review. I also had a unique and memorable experience through your tours not only as a guide but also as a person. I hope you can have a safe and wonderful time in rest of your trip . Please write me when you come to Hiroshima again. Kazumi
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
