An incredible day, starting at Glovers Garden overlooking the harbor, continuing on to the Atomic Museum and Peace Park. Then we had an amazing lunch together in a traditional Japanese style restaurant with local Nagasaki delicacies. After lunch, we explored so many temples and shrines. Overall, a perfect day. In my opinion, this was the best way to see Nagasaki in a day. I got to see the highlights and hear personal stories. I would recommend Miyuki to anyone who wants a great tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment and high rating, Kevin! I also enjoyed listening your comments about the porcelain and cutlery in Dejima. Hope you would enjoy the rest of your days in Japan!

Miyuki was an outstanding tour guide. Nothing was too much trouble.

Miyuki is very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with her - richer for the experience. Highly recommended.

Terrific DAY TOUR with Miyuki-san ~ Miyuki was more than glad to cater the afternoon to our wishes! Miyuki met us at our hotel and were able to take the tram to everywhere we wanted to go .. .. Miyuki has extensive knowledge of everywhere we went, is very friendly and did everything she can to make our tour enjoyable .. .. On our way back to the hotel, we told Miyuki that we wanted to try Whale for dinner and she quickly made reservations, helped us order and then left us to enjoy our meal ~ Domo, Miyuki

We had a fabulous day with Miyuki visiting the highlights other than the bomb related sights in Nagasaki . The day started by taking the ropeway to Mt Inasa lookout to get a great view of the city . Born in the Netherlands I was really looking forward to seeing Dejima which was an early outpost for the Dutch traders .After a delicious typical N. lunch we took the tram to Meganebashi Bridge and walked the temple row . A great day was had with nine of us with our wonderful guide Miyuki. Thank you very much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating and comment, Tonny. I had a wonderful time with all of you. Hope you would come back to see other sites in Nagasaki!

She is polite, punctual, knowledgable, flexible considerate, helpful, resourceful, responsive, and organised; all the qualities of a guide that a tourist will ask for. But Miyuki is a natural that what makes our experience so relaxing and enjoyable, she is fluent in English, not to mention that she looked after us so well and was beyond her call of duty to find us Mass service schedule and location, arrange the Goto Island tour for us at her off hours. I have already passed her contact to my friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating and warm comment, Agnes! I had an wonderful time with you in Sotome and Nagasaki city centre. You sounds like a reseracher of Icomos, or sounds like more professional! Hope to see you again and look forward to meeting with your friends in the near future.

Miyuki is a great guide of Nagasaki. Her knowledge of the city's role in the Meiji Industrial Revolution was both informative and entertaining. She guided us to the city's major sites such as Mt. Inasa, the Peace Park and Museum, Dejima Dutch Trading Post, Glover house and gardens, and the site of the 26 Martyrs. We highly recommend her as a guide.

Miyuki O is an excellent tour guide. She had an email exchange with us prior tour visit, and helped us customize our one day tour of Nagasaki. It was an extremely hot day particularly in the afternoon, and she helped us by adjusting the tour to a pace we could handle. She was very knowledgeable about Nagasaki's history and could answer all our questions with ease. She is an extremely pleasant person to be with, and we were very pleased with the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment and high rating, David! I really had a wonderful time with you. I enjoyed answering your interesting questions:-) Hope you would enjoy the rest of your days in Japan.

Miyuki was a wonderful tour guide!!! She is extremely knowledgeable and very fluent in English. She also went above and beyond to help us set up our rail passes and book our Shinkensan trips at the end of a long day. She also took me to a fabric store as a friend wanted me to bring back Japanese fabric so she can make something. When we were with her, if she heard someone trying to figure out directions, she offered her help. She is a tremendously generous thoughtful woman. I'd strongly recommend a tour!

My family and I toured Nagasaki with Miyuki san and we enjoyed the experience immensely. This is actually the second tour my husband and I have done with her and we brought the rest of the family along this time. Miyuki san is an excellent and flexible guide and will customise the tour experience based on your interests. She also knows the best places for Nagasaki specialties. More than all that, she is a helpful, kind and warmhearted person. Please take a tour with her if you visit Nagasaki.

Miyoki was very flexible and managed our day to meet our needs. This including taking us to the Railway station and sorting out all our forward bookings. We had a lovely lunch at a Japanese resturant which we would never have found on our own. The Peace park and Atomic Museum are a must we found this very moving.

Miyuki's second day with us was as informative and enjoyable as the first. We got a great panoramic view of the city via Public Transit....the trams and busses in Nagasaki are very comfortable to use, especially with a guide who knows which way to go. The Peace Park was, of course, a moral obligation to see....it is extremely well done, though be prepared to be moved by the exhibit. We toured the fantastic Turtle Temple and another ancient Temple near where we had a traditional many-course lunch feast. A+

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice and detailed comment again. Your nice family made me want to travel with my family soon(^_^)

Miyuki worked closely with me to create tours to meet our specific goals in Nagasaki, the Shimabara peninsula, and areas north of Nagasaki regarding the incredible story (mostly tragic) of the Catholic Church in Japan. We covered all the sights we wanted to see in Nagasaki very efficiently, and we wanted to see a lot! Miyuki was very flexible, and added a half-day to our schedule on short notice when our plans changed. She has my highest recommendation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Blaine! I really enjoyed planning your tours. I was surprised to know you were a sponge learning the history in Nagasaki.

Friendly Miyuki was able to navigate the local sites and transportation and bring history alive at the Suwa Shrine. She scheduled a traditional Japanese lunch atop a mountain that overlooked Nagasaki. Most importantly she found for us hand made paper. Miyuki fits well in all kinds of company and is very professional, tactful, and fun.

We enjoyed our day with Miyuki very much. We did make a substitution to visit Dejima. We are in our 60's and got worn out on our tour so we could not see everything on our list. She was disappointed that we could not see more but we were fine with it. She spoke English well and was friendly and anxious to show us a good time. She picked a great spot for lunch. I highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for high rating and comment, Thomas! I was not disappointed at all! I am happy you could enjoy the tour on your own pace anytime. When we discussed the itinerary in advance, maybe the first itinerary was too much for you. Also according to your advice, I created a new tour, Your First Nagasaki. It will be easy for first time visitors.
