We were a family of four including two teenagers. We had a one and a half day trip of Hiroshima with Mayumi. She showednus Memorial Park first half day and Miyamaji Island tour next full day. We used the public transport but she made it very efficient. She is very knowledgeable about the history and told of lot of tit bits. It was hot that day when we toured with her but she made sure we were comfortable. She stopped and helped my wife several times since my wife had trouble walking due to arthritis. I would highly recommend her without reservations. I will definitely use her services again. Thanks Mayumi for you help!!
Dear Premila I highly appreciate your prompt review like this. I reached home safely just one hour ago. Thanks to your kindness, I really had a great time with you and your family, although we had very hot days. You looked like a really happy dad with your children. I also enjoyed Miyajima beer, Thanks!! (chuckle). Hope you will have a pleasant flight back to the States tomorrow. Please give my best regards to your beloved family members. Bon voyage. With gratitude, Mayumi
We had a great ytime and she was a wonderful guide.
Thank you, Mr & Mrs. Norman. We never thought that we could have that kind of deluge of rain in Hiroshima, which caused a lot of fatalities and paralyzed our transportation systems. Although things are getting back to normal little by little, we still need more time to rehabilitate. I greatly appreciated your kind understanding about the circumstance we have been facing now. Wish you good health and happiness. With gratitude. Mayumi
We had a well planned day with Mayumi. She coordinated train times for us coming from Osaka, was very informative and flexible/helpful with our 5 year old twin boys.
Dear Lisa Thanks for the review. How is your journey going? Hope you enjoyed the Japanese base ball game with your family. Didn't you have any influence of the crazy rain last weekend? Hiroshima got hit very badly but we will be fine. Thanks. Mayumi
Mayumi was excellent and very knowledgeable. We spent the day going around Hiroshima city and Miyajima. Hiroshima can be a sensitive place to visit, especially for someone from the US. Mayumi handled it wonderfully. She knew when to talk, and when to give me a chance to reflect while at the memorial. She answered all of the questions I had, and eagerly shared her knowledge. Miyajima was beautiful. Again, Mayumi was very knowledgeable about the area and gladly shared information. The walk and ropeway to the top station of the mountain is well worth it.
Dear Tom, It was such a sweet surprise and delight to receive your message today. I am grateful to you that generously posted this kind of review even one month later. It was a great pleasure meeting with you. Wish you the best of luck with everything! Warm regards, Mayumi
It was an excellent day with Mayumi bending an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and organized. She was flexible enough to adjust timings of the tour based upon the guests needs. She had done good research and ground work on what we wanted to do and eat and still be flexible and able to cover all the attractions. Special thanks for brinigjng in the umbrellas for the rainy day. We indeed loved the day and time spent in Hiroshima which was really enlightening and soul stirring.
Dear Benika I very much appreciated your big heart. You are the one who had done good research and ground work on what you wanted to do with me ....which was really admired. I Hope you will come and visit Hiroshima again to try OKONOMIYAKI in Hiroshima style next time. Please give my best regards to your beloved family. With gratitude, Mayumi
