Excellent tour
Feb 2020
A late winter summer day in Hiroshima visiting the Memorial Peace Park, the A-Bomb-Museum, the Hiroshima Castle and the Teahouse-Garden was wonderful due to our excellent guide Yuko who spoke an excellent English and had some additional information for us. 100% Recommandation.

Thank you for your pleasant comment. I was happy that you took the time out of your busy schedule and booked the tour. It was such a lovely time to have tea break together in the garden. The plum blossoms were really pretty, weren’t they? Both of you were so gracious that I felt comfortable and enjoyed chatting during the tour. When you have another chance to come back to Hiroshima, let’s go to Miyajima Island together. Yuko

Private half day tour of Hiroshima gardens, peace park and museums with Yuko
Our family of four had a fantastic 4 hour tour with Yuko our guide of the Hiroshima gardens, peace park, bomb site dome, childrens memorials and museum. Yuko picked us up from Hiroshima station in the morning and walked us firstly through the beautiful gardens of Hiroshima before heading to the peace park, memorials and museum. All were within walking distance from the train station and we thoroughly enjoyed her knowledge and passionate stories of Hiroshima which she explained in very clear English. She was a delight to spend time with and helped us back to the train station later that afternoon and helped sort our train transport back to Kyoto. She was extremely helpful. Thank you for a most enjoyable and informative day that will be a lasting memory of our Japan trip.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I am glad that you made it back to Kyoto safely. It was the last day of the New Year’s holiday, so it must have been tough for you to be in a train packed with a lot of people. I had an amazing time and enjoyed talking with you. You were very gracious and thoughtful to me, and I felt comfortable during the tour. Please enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan! Yuko

Not worth the cost!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! The description of the tour is not accurate though, it lists multiple places to go however in the half day tour we were only able to go to Miyajima. You do not need to do a tour in Hiroshima, everything is easily accessible on your own and English descriptions. Essentially the high cost of this tour is not worth it when everything is easily done on your own. It was ridiculous having to pay for the tour guides transport. $120 each should cover everything.

Excellent tour and guide - Yuko
Our guide for our family of 3 for the Hiroshima/Miyajima tour was Yuko. She was wonderful, spoke excellent English and was very informative. She went above and beyond to make the tour an amazing experience. Yuko made contact the day before the tour and suggested an itinerary around some of the museums being closed for NYE. We were privileged to witness some special NYE events at Miyajima Island which Yuko was just as excited about as us. Yuko made our visit to Hiroshima a very memorable one. Thanks so much Yuko, we appreciated all your efforts, enthusiasm and expertise. I would highly recommend Yuko and this tour to anyone visiting Hiroshima.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I was very happy to spend such a special day with you. It was the most wonderful and exciting NYE in my life. Thank you, too. I really enjoyed chatting with you. I hope that you made it to a Okonomiyaki place for dinner and enjoy the illuminations, “Hiroshima Dreamination.” Please enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan! Yuko

Excellent Hiroshima-Miyajima private tour
Nov 2019 • Couples
Tomoyo our guide was excellent, knowledgeable, sensible and very caring for our needs. We visited the Hiroshima Bomb site and Museum and then headed to the island. The tour is tailored to what you want to visit and what time you have. I wanted to go to the gardens but 4 hours was not enough. Instead we visited Miyajima in the ferry (JR Pass holders don’t pay) and wondered in the island and in the shrine which is definitely worthy. We had snacks from the food street while in the island and took amazing photos of the shrine (temple). Shame that the Tori in the beach in Miyajima is under renovation but the rest is very pretty. All with the help and guide of Tomoyo, she was recommending things to do, to eat, telling us about the history of the places we visited and even taken photos from us. I recommend this 100%. I am sure coming back to Hiroshima. We pay for all our public transport, buses, and the guide’s fees but it’s not really much compared to the personal attention you receive.

Thank you for your fabulous review. I am happy to know that you had a good time in Hiroshima. Because you are a catholic and speak Spanish, you might be interested in the book about the priest called Arrupe Pedro S.J. who lived in Hiroshima. Vuelve a Hiroshima otra vez. Muchas gracias! Tomoyo

Half-day tour of Hiroshima
Nov 2019 • Family
We had an amazing day in Hiroshima with Keiko! She promptly met us at the train station and brought us back, even waiting with us in the queue and helping us check if we could reserve seats for our train back to Kyoto in Japanese. She was enthusiastic and well-informed and the tour was fun and well organised. Thank you for a lovely time, Kay!

Worth the trip to Hiroshima!
Nov 2019 • Couples
I have always wanted to go to the Hiroshima PeaceMemorial and Museum. However, the tour to Miyajima Island made the experience beyond special! We has never known anything about and our guide, Namitsu was incredible and informative. She gave us interesting facts and background information and it felt like we were with an old friend. The museum was somber and incredibly tasteful. Nami interjected with points of interest and gave us some of her family history. Nami also made sure that we made it safely to our train. This has been a day to remember!

Excellent tour of Hiroshima with guide Yuko
Oct 2019 • Family
Yuko was an excellent guide. She met us at our hotel and took us to 4 different sites as part of our tour. We started with the gardens and ended at the Atomic dome and museum.

It was a really interesting tour and she shared insights as well as leaving us time to contemplate the horror and impact of the bomb.

Thank you for your pleasant comment. I had an amazing time with you. Everyone in your family was so nice and considerate of me. Since it was a special national holiday, I was very happy to have a chance to talk about the enthronement ceremony for the new era of Japan. Also, we were lucky enough to enter the museum for free of charge! Next time you come back to Hiroshima, let’s go to Miyajima Island together. Yuko
