I wouldn’t hesitate to use a guide for Hiroshima - my kids got way more out of hearing the stories from a local. Mayumi was really flexible- we changed our timings last minute and she worked around us no problem!
Dear Karen, Thank you very much for leaving a review. How was a paddle walk? I bet the girls had a great fun. Please have more fun with them. All the best, Mayumi
Our guide is very knowledgeable for the sites we visited, and she is very patient and nice. she recommended the itinerary which is very well planned. We think she is very professional.
Dear Trent, Thank you very much for a good review. YOU are very patient and nice indeed. Always try to listen and give consideration to your clients. I saw that they trust you and feel secure with you. Thanks to you and your nice clients you brought here, my tour in Hiroshima went good. Enjoy the remaining days in Japan. Best, Mayumi
We had an excellent half-day tour with Mayumi. She was very knowledgeable about Hiroshima and events relating to the atomic bomb. She gave us clear and interesitng information and was happy - and able! - to answer our many questions. She had been thoughtful about our route and was happy to be adaptable when there was a reason to make a modest change. Her English was excellent and her explanations were always clear. Thank you, Mayumi!
Dear Jeremy, I really appreciate your great review, which just made my day. I was fortunate to know the couple like yours and thankful for you who generously shared insightful information with me. I searched and found the book you kindly mentioned, regarding an unknown English man who fell in love with cherry blossoms and dedicated much of his life to their cultivation and preservation in Britain and Japan. I am very much looking forward to reading it. Please enjoy loads of joy and happiness through the journey in Japan with Julia. God bless you all. Best, Mayumi.
Mayumi did a great job!
Thank you very much, Zack. Wishing you all good health and happiness always! Best, Mayumi
Mayumi is a great guide, a very nice person to spend the day with. She is very personable and knowledgeable. We greatly enjoyed our time touring Miyajima and Hiroshima with her!
Dear Bob. I thank you very much for taking your time out to leave this kind of excellent review. Grateful and thankful to have you two as my guests. Wish you and your family great health and tons of joy. Best. Mayumi.
