“ Hiroshima and miyajima tour ”

Thank you Yuko for a wonderful experience! The tour to Hiroshima and Miyajima you have our family was so informative and fun! Thank you for finding the special places to eat and explaining all of the history to us and our children! I had no idea you were a former high school teacher- that explains how you were so patient with our kids! Haha. Thank you again. I would highly recommend you to anyone traveling abroad.


Dear Emily, How are you? It was also my pleasure to share a happy time with Eva, Daniel, Kenji, and you in Hiroshima. Thank you for your heartfelt review. I appreciate it very much. Wish 2020 bring your family good luck💕 With best regards, Yuko

“ Wonderful guide ”

She was just incredibly wonderful, such a lovely and thoughtful person. She even brought an extra umbrella in case I didn’t have one. She knew the times of every train, bus, and ferry, and when one bus got filled up she headed right for the taxi stand and we split the cab with people. I would highly recommend her for any Japanese person visiting that art site, too. She also knew the history and background of the places we went to.


Thank you for your heart-felt review. I appreciate it very much. It was also my pleasure to meet you and walk around Naoshima with you. Hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Sincerely yours Yuko

“ Hiroshima tour for 8 cruise passengers ”

We would hesitant to strongly recommend Yuko to anyone who is looking for a wonderful and skillful guide. The entire 6 hour tour was interesting. We visited key sights in the city. Yuko arranged all the transportation. To simplify the payment for us, she paid for all the taxis and entrance fees for which we reimbursed her at the conclusion of the tour. The I hour private video presentation with in-person narration at the Peace Museum was the most impactful story we have ever heard. Yuki's assistance was essential for our visit to Japan to be memorable. We will not forget the message of Hiroshima or her hospitality. Domo Arigato, Denny and Lisa


Dear Denny & Lisa, Thank you for your favorable review. I appreciate it very much. Hope you all will enjoy the rest of your cruise! Thank you!

“ Very pleasant, informative and gracious ”

She kept in touch prior to arrival and very informative. She was also very flexible and added a stop not originality agreed to. She was very gracious in that our cruise ship arrived late and our tour started an hour late. Recommend Yuko to anyone who wants to see Hiroshima


Dear Dennis, Thank you for your nice review. It was also my pleasure to meet you and Barbara and have a wonderful tour with you. I hope you'll enjoy a safe and happy cruise. Sincerely yours, Yuko
