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.

I took the Miyajima Half-Day Tour with Azusa. Her breadth of knowledge about the sight's history and religious importance alongside her understanding of Japanese culture more generally really brought my time in Miyajima to life! She provides considered and thoughtful guidance, ensuring that any questions you may have are not left unanswered. We started at the famous Tori Gate on Miyajima island, moved into the Tokokuni Shrine, ventured through the Daiganji Temple and eventually concluded our tour of the island through its shopping streets. Along with her extensive knowledge of the island, Azusa manages to take wonderful photos without fault! I have no hesitation in recommending Azusa for anyone who is looking for a personal and impactful tour through Miyajima. Her tour was certainly a highlight during my time in Hiroshima. Andrew.
Dear Andrew san Thank you so much for your kind message and recommending me. It was my pleasure to spend a really wonderful time with you in Miyajima. Your considerate attitude and a pleasant sense of humor must have been nurtured in your multiracial country. I learned a lot from speaking with you. It was inspiring for a tour guide from a racially homogeneous nation. Your job is very demanding and challenging. I hope you will enjoy your precious holidays to the fullest. Take care and good luck ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
Amazing guide! She made sure we understood the history and story behind what we saw and visited and made our day with her an amazing memory. Azusa san is, on top of that, an extremely nice person and spending the day with her was a pleasure!
Dear Mariona san Thank you so much for your kind words. You are sailing a boat. So I thought this calm inland sea was not just good enough for you. But I am really glad to know that you are satisfied with Hiroshima tour. Both of you are so polite and kindhearted persons and above all showed much interest in things Japanese, which made me so delighted. The hot days continue on. Please take care of yourselves.
Ari san was friendly, funny and informative. We had a great time touring Miyajima and Hiroshima with her. Her knowledge was genuinely insightful, we left with a deeper understanding of Shinto customs and the history of the region. We would highly recommend booking a tour with her.
Dear Poh san I really appreciate your kind message. You are extremely humorous and wonderful couple. I was very glad to be with both of you. Fulfilling every day in your country seems to enrich your lives. I envy you. Someday I would love to go to your country . And your interest in Japanese art surprised me. Talking to you motivated me to study more about Japanese art. In Naoshima, please fully enjoy Japanese modern art. I wish you both happiness forever !
She was the best!! So knowledgeable she even showed us pictures. Awesome tour guide. She helped me how to get to Hiroshima airport and brought me a schedule the next day. Very sweet lady.
Dear Tommy san Thank you very much for your kind message. I was so happy to be with your family for two days. Your country's food culture was very impressive and interesting to me. It made me want to go to your country and try it. I hope your family liked Hiroshima food. Fortunately we had no trouble caused by typhoon. Maybe you brought the wonderful weather with you. Have a great trip ! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
I was a bit hesitant on finding a Tour guide without much reviews. But what a blessing it was to have choosen Azusa. she is a lovely lady who made our trip very memorable. Azusa is a very pleasant lady who came prepared and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her for any trip to Hiroshima. we were travelling with 2 young children and a group of 6 adults.
