Good 1-day experience with great guide
Yuko is a wonderful guide. Very attentive and accommodating. Given my limited time, this tour was perfect as we went to key highlights in both places. I would like to come back and visit both places to spend more time. This tour was a good introduction.
A perfect day in Hiroshima and Miyajima
My husband and I booked a private tour for our family including our two kids ages 10 and 8. We were so happy with Yuko, she was the perfect tour guide and made our visit to Hiroshima and Miyajima Island very special. Yuko met us at the train station and we started our tour at the Peace Memorial Museum before visiting the A Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Park. From there we caught a ferry to Miyajima Island where we visited the Istukushima Shrine, had lunch and ate some of the best gelato we have ever tasted. Yuko was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and was extremely friendly and helpful. We really appreciate how lovely our day was with her and would definitely take a tour with Yuko again!
We spend a few hours with Yuko at Hiroshima. Yuko is friendly and easy to comunicate in english. She gave us some advice before we plan our tour at hiroshima.
A great day to enjoy Hiroshima.
We started the day in Hiroshima with Yuko as our guide by visiting the Memorial war museum and watch diorama at the centre. Yuko explained the entire history of the war and has been very knowledgable about it. We were speechless to read all details and sad story about Hiroshima during the world war. We also visited the Dome as the silent witness of the bombing. Luckily we went to Miyajima island to find a more happy part of Hiroshima. Yuko took us to one of the best Oyster restaurant at the island and finish it by taking ferry and train back to our hotel. We are very happy with our Yuko and would definitely recommend for people to ask her being the local guide. It's amazing.....!
Miyajima + Hiroshima Day Tour
When I contacted Yuko san about this tour and she responded that she wouldn't be available to guide this tour because she would be away, I was a little sad. But she found a replacement tour guide for us and I was really thankful that she put in the effort and tried to make this experience possible for us.
Hitomi san was wonderful. Her English was great. She explained and showed us some of the things that happened during the bombing that we would never forget. One of the most touching part of this Hiroshima tour was when she took us to the Children's Peace Monument. There were groups after groups of school children singing at this monument, it was beautiful and haunting at the same time.
After experiencing the heavy feelings that Hiroshima created, we made our way to Miyajima and was it a beautiful place. Hitomi san knew exactly where to go and what to show us and we were very grateful to have her guide us or we'd miss so much of the Island if we were by ourselves. We went into a temple that no one seems to be going in or out of. It was very peaceful and quite and we had the place to ourselves.
Hitomi san was wonderful, she picked us up at the Hiroshima Staion and dropped us off back there at the end of the tour so we didn't have to worry about how to get back to the station. So grateful for that!
Thank you Yuko san for making this tour possible for us by letting Hitomi san be our guide for that day.
Yuko knows eveything about Hiroshima and Myajima.
It was a very pleasant surprise all your explanations and knowledge.
Everything went according to plan and we had an unforgettable day !
Thank you for everything, Yuko.
We had a great tour with Yuko! She took my daughter and I to Miyajima and showed us interesting shrines and temples, and took us for a nice nature walk. At the peace park, she again had a lot of additional information that made the tour more interesting and enjoyable. She was also very helpful at lunch with getting my daughter food prepared to accommodate her allergies. We highly recommend this tour.
This is a great tour if you only have one day to explore both Miyajima and Hiroshima. Yuko is very informative and makes it seamless to get from one place to the next. Yuko gave us some options of how we wanted to spend the day and we decided to go on the gondola on the island which was great. She took us for an amazing oyster lunch, which we requested, so she is really flexible in the plans. She left us some time to explore the peace museum by ourselves which was great as we didn't feel rushed at all. We definitely recommend this tour if you don't want to go in a big group. Yuko is fantastic and speaks fluent English!
Guide was very courteous.
