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.

Azusa is a great guide. We had la t minute changes to schedule which Azusa easily accommodated. Her knowledge of Hiroshima and sights was impressive, travel schedule was easy to do. Overall we had a lovely relaxed and informed day with Azusa. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Azusa. Peter
Dear Peter san I really appreciate your kind remarks. And thank you for being patient, friendly and listening to me during the tour. I was so happy you have interests in Hiroshima. We got lucky with great weather. Maybe both of you have brought this lovely weather with you. Your journey has just begun and I hope this great weather will hold while you are in Japan. Enjoy your trip! Sincerely, Azusa Arita
Azusa helped us make the most of our short time in Hiroshima. She guided us through the ancient and modern history of Hiroshima, highlighting points of interest not in the travel brochures. Azusa found a wonderful authentic Okonomiyaki restaurant for lunch. Azusa is very friendly and helpful and communicates clearly in English. I would recommend Azusa to anyone visiting Hiroshima.
Dear Gary san I appreciate your great message so much. Both of you are really warm-hearted. You make me relaxed with the wonderful humor. During the tour I always feel comfortable being with you. And thank you so much for showing me your granddaughter's photo. She is as cute as a button.She must be the apple of your eyes. Unfortunately this autumn we have had many typhoons so I'm afraid you might not have fully enjoyed your stay in Japan. I would definitely like you and your family to come to Japan again once your granddaughter and the second grandchild get old enough. Wishing you good health, Azusa Arita
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 certai... read more
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 !
