“ Enlightening and soul stirring ”

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.

“ Wonderful tour of Miyajima and Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was a wonderful guide! We were delighted to have an insider's view of both Miyajima Island and Hiroshima Peace Park. Highlights: incredible English fluency, warm, flexible, and deep understanding of the history and importance of these sites. To have my son and nephew learn about Hiroshima through the overwhelming stories and the living history, is to change their world view forever. Thank you Mayumi!

“ Miyajima Day Trip ”

Mayumi was prompt in meeting us and was well organized for our day at Miyajima. She ably led us through the public transit, train and boat we needed to arrive at the island . Once there she highlighted the O torii Gates, the pagodas, the shrines and temples. To top it all off she climbed to the summit of Mt. Misen with us. She was pleasant and personable throughout; the perfect guide for our last day in Japan! Thank you Mayumi!😃

“ 2 days in Hiroshima ”

We met MAYUMI who took us to all the interesting places and was helpful and extremely knowledgeable. We could not have done it without her in the time we had and having MAYUMI as a guide made our stay memorable. I only wish we had ever more time to spend together. I can highly recommend here to any visitor to hiroshima.

“ Very interesting and touching ”

Mayumi was very friendly, even though we were too late. The tour (we booked only for two hours) was very interesting especially the little museum in the old school, an important place after the bombing. Thanks for guiding us!
