Hello, my name is Azusa Arita. I'm a licensed tour guide in English. I think there is no big difference between what Japan is today and what you see about Japan in manga, except " Naruto." ( Sorry but Ninjya is no longer exist.) Japan is a two -faced society, a society of modern technology and that of tradition. That's why it seems mysterious and difficult to understand. Hiroshima is a good place to experience the both aspects of Japan. Do you know the darkness in which you 'll be a new person, or the special way you can gain the same amount of wisdom written in Buddhist scriptures at one time?
Let's go and find the answers to these mysteries in Hiroshima. I'll make sure you have a great time in this tour.

Ari gave my wife and me a great day seeing all of the highlights of Hiroshima. She led us through Miyajima Island, the Hiroshima Peace Park, and Hiroshima Castle. She organized our day perfectly, and at every stop, she was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and responsive to whatever we found most interesting to do or hear about. She met us at our hotel at the beginning of the day, dropped us off there at the end, and made us feel so well taken care of at every stop in between. Strongly recommended!
Dear Kenneth san Thank you so much for your kind remark. I have got courage from your words. Both of you are brilliant and cheerful people. I really enjoyed spending wonderful time exchanging jokes in refreshing breeze and fresh green leaves. Everything was vivid except for deer. All deer were dozing off in the sun.( I wonder if deer are nocturnal.) You showed much interest in not only the peace city of Hiroshima but also the pre-modern history of Hiroshima. That made me so happy. Japan has become quite westernized but I think the very real element in the Japanese personality lies in samurai culture. Your jobs are busy and high demanding. Please fully enjoy your limited vacation in Japan ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
Dear Ron san I really appreciate your kind review. Our tour was in the middle of 10 days holiday in Japan. All Japanese people were getting too excited. I truly felt the unexpected often happens in life. If I had let all of you go without entering the museum, it would have deserved seppuku. However fortunately we were able to see the exhibits there. This tour became an unforgettable memory for me. All the best Azusa Arita
She was well organised flexible and friendly, resulting in a very enjoyable day in Hiroshima.I highly recommend her.
Dear Beverley san Thank you so much for your kind message and a great time I spent with all your humorous people in Hiroshima. You are the first visitor that I have ever met to have the courage to try a blowfish. Please be careful there are some dangerous food in Japanese cuisine. Every January about 1300 Japanese people die after choking on rice cakes. We tend to risk our lives for delicious food. Please enjoy safe Japanese food and have a nice trip ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
We were a group of four and she pickend us up at the cruiseport, right in time. She showed us the best spots of Hiroshima including a trip to beautiful Miyajima, which we could highly recommend. Behause our time was limited due to the early departure of our cruise ship, we had to cut the prorgram, but it was no problem for Azusa. She was very flexible and it did not bother her,even to give up lunch and take only time for a coffee.Thanks for all, Azusa, it was a great trip!
Azusa-san was an excelent guide. We enjoyed every minute of out tour. She also made an efort to find gluten free restaurants for my wife.
Dear Bojan san Thank you so much for your kind words. Unlike weather forecast, it was a lovely day. We saw many deer basking in the sun. Many Japanese people were digging clams near the Big Torii Gate even though it is prohibited. I hope all of you felt a real Japanese vibe in the island. You are all friendly and considerate people. It was my great pleasure to have had a wonderful time with your group in Hiroshima. Have a fun trip ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
