A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshi is a fantastic guide who will expertly keep your group moving without being overbearing. She is extremely knowledgeable, but resists turning your tour into a history lesson. She took the time to understand the sorts of things we wanted to do and see, and customised our tour to suit. A great day was had by experienced and inexperienced travellers alike. We can highly recommend Yoshi for your tour of Hiroshima and surrounds.
