Hi, I'm Yuko. I'm a national licensed guide and very experienced with organizing tours. I'd like to share my knowledge of Japanese history and culture with you!

Hiroshima has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Atomic Bomb Dome and Miyajima. Visiting Hiroshima will make your trip to Japan more memorable.

If you need a sedan or minivan, I'd be happy to arrange it for no additional charge.

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour 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.

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour 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!

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour 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.....!

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full Day Tour

    Explore Miyajima & Hiroshima in a Full 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.
