Keiko was an excellent guide and without doubt allowed us to see far more of Hiroshima and Miyajima than we would have managed by ourselves. Her easy going nature and excellent English meant the dialogue was natural and we could enjoy the days to the max. Her organisation was excellent and the logistics were always spot-on. Her local knowledge of both areas was excellent and she was able to convey the obvious passion she has for her home and its powerful history. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jon & Brenda, Thank you for your review and thank you for the wonderful two days we spent together! I was very happy being with you happy couple. You showed us how life shold be and I was sure happy people attract happy surroundings. May a happy world prevail all over the world!
Keiko was amazing. You not only have a knowledgeable tour guide, you also make a genuine friend. After the tour she took us for karaoke and local cuisine. A memorable experience to say the least. I highly reccomend keiko for your tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dan, it was a memorable day for me, too! I enjoyed karaoke, too, and enjoyed the real musicians' singing in karaoke place!! I will always remember you whenever I go to karaoke. You were amazing! With the fun memories we shared, let us be a small piece of the better world.

Keiko and this tour were superb. We decided last minute on the tour and it ended up being both moving and memorable. Keiko made the day easy and took us to a great place for lunch .She gave us great historical background of of Itsukushima shrine, Diasho-in and Hiroshima. Her background as an English teacher came through on the tour. She kept all of us engaged including my college age sons. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan and Keiko had alot to do with it. Strongly recommend guide/tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Raj, I had a wonderful day with you and your family, too! Exchanging our thoughts on peace and history was a lot of fun. We are small pieces of world community but we can spread love and peace to our friends. Let us make the world a peaceful place. Best wishes, Keiko

My tour with Keiko was a highlight of my visit to japan. Keiko is a very friendly, polite and knowledgeable guide in Hiroshima and gave us a very detailed tour of the atomic bomb site, peace park and museum. She speaks English to a very high level, and was able to answer many questions I had on the visit. She was even able to help us change JR tickets at the station, and will go above and beyond to help the clients she has on her tour. Thank you for a wonderful experience in Hiroshima Keiko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Adam, I really enjoyed the conversation with you two, too. We could share our thoughts on war history, peace and culture. The time we shared will definitely be a small piece of a better world. May peace prevail all over the world!

Keiko was very nice and knowledgeable. We started the day at Miyajima and ended at Hiroshima. She speaks very good English and discussed the history and customs with us. I highly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kathy, thank you for your review. The tour with you was unforgettable. The rainfall in Hiroshima was the worst in decades but I really enjoyed the day with you. We had a great day talking, laughing and discussing in the 'purifying' rain. When it rains, please remember me and Hiroshima!!
Ian HopeLandsborough, QUEENSLAND, Australia
Keiko is an excellent guide. We thoroughly appreciated her knowledge and experience. Her choice for lunch was excellent. We enjoyed our lunch, well worth the visit. Keiko was able to explain much about her city. We can recommend quite highly Keiko. She went out of her way to cater for Margie's dietary needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ian, thank you for your review. Spending a day with you and Margie was really enjoyable. I will not forget our tour with you! I hope we will become small pieces of a more peaceful world. Best wishes, Keiko
Keiko was a fantastic fantastic tour guide. She was amazing with the kids and her English was fantastic She shared many personal anecdotes and really went beyond her way for the children to enjoy the visit teaching them to build paper cranes. We absolutely loved Keiko and would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Hiroshima. Many thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sonia, I really enjoyed being with you all, too! I hope my tour was an educational and memorable one for your kids. They were all amazingly smart. I am sure they will be good citizens of peaceful community!
Esteban B.United States
First of all my experience with Keiko was amazingly great! We booked Keiko last minute and she was able to be flexible with our schedule. She was exactly what I had hoped for Keiko is incredibly knowledgeable. Her English is excellent and her personality is outstanding! She masterfully guided us through a very somber experience. It was very helpful to have some "hand holding" during this experience. Keiko was the perfect person for the job I am grateful Keiko was there to guide us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Esteban, thank you for your review. I had an amazing day with you, too! Hiroshima has a sad memory but I think what we can do is to think the way to stop chain of hatred. Let us hope someday there will be no war and all the people in the world will have a happy daily life!
We had a wonderful morning with Keiko! She is an excellent guide and was friendly, knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the history of Hiroshima. It was great to hear from someone firsthand about how the bombing effected her family and the locals. Walking around with Keiko felt like being with a friend and ate the end of the tour she showed us a local place to try Okonomi-yaki - which was delicious! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, thanks again Keiko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tasha, thank you for your warm message. We really had a great time and I was happy that we could talk about a world with love and peace after visiting a sad museum. May peace prevail all over the world!
I was happy with the style of Keiko. She was able to give the details/historical aspect of Hiroshima bombing without sounding like a lecturer. Keiko was able to keep the interest of my 4 sons. She encouraged everyone to ask questions and share personal views on war. The pace was just right, I did not feel rushed and pressed for time since she arranged a van for us to move around. She also brought us to a restaurant where the locals eat... it was delicious and reasonably priced.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, Roma! Your four sons were so nice to be with and I enjoyed the very happy atmosphere of your family. Hiroshima has a sad history but we can learn from the past and convert it into the positive way to make a peaceful world. May peace prevail in the whole world!
Justin MilliardUnited States
Keiko provided an excellent tour of Hiroshima! She was able to communicate and teach our group about this history and the human experience of the city from both a personal and societal perspective. A true delight to talk to and share the afternoon with. We highly recommend anyone interested in learning a little bit more than what is available on the informational placards to take a tour with Keiko.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Justin, thank you for your review! I had a really wonderful day with you. The history of Hiroshima is sad but we can think about the way to make a better world by seeing the history from various perspectives. We paid a lot to learn a great lesson. Let us share what we see and what we think about peace with lots of people!
Absolutely perfect day!!! Easily the best day of the trip. Keiko was a great guide, showed us around perfectly and by the end of the tour felt like we were travelling around with a friend, not a hired guide. Amazing way to appreciate the memorable city of Hiroshima.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tim, thank you for your review. I was very happy to be with you three, too. Hiroshima has a sad history but I think this is where we can start making a peaceful world. Let us become small pieces of a better world!
We had the BEST day with Keiko! She was knowledgeable, friendly, flexible and just a delight to be with. We saw and visited places a little "out of the way". She was more than happy to accommodate all our quirky desires. Cannot recommend her highly enough. A six star guide. Thank you Keiko. Diane Munro
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Diane, thank you so much for your review. I'm very happy that you enjoyed my tour today although it was raining all day long. We enjoyed talking, eating, walking and seeing a lot. It was my pleasure to be a part of your happy memory in Japan. Thank you!
Steven AronsonNew York, NY, United States
exactly what we wanted-an intelligent, friendly and knowledgeable local guide to give us a one Day introduction to Hiroshima.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steven, thank you for your review. Seeing the history from different perspectives is interesting and I really enjoyed talking with you two. I hope you will have a wonderful stay in Japan.

Marian CoeUnited States
We had a fantastic day today with Keiko. She was waiting for us with a taxi when we left our ship and showed us the Japanese Gardens, Hiroshima Castle, the Peace Park and Memorials and the Museum. Her English was perfect and her explanations of what we were seeing excellent. We had a local Hiroshima lunch at a great local place. Our day couldn't have been more perfect and we highly recommend using her guiding service if you are looking for a private full day tour where you see all the main sites.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marian, thank you for your review. I had a great day with you and I learned a lot from you, too. We can give and share each other our knowledge, opinion, experience and peace-loving mind, because we are a part of 'one world'. I hope you will fully enjoy your stay in Japan!
Neal FujishigeUnited States
We were punctually met at the Hiroshima station by Keiko, our friendly and knowledgeable guide for the day. She presented us with an overview of the tour and we were off. Keiko, who is from the area, offered her personal experiences which contributed immensely to the depth of our understanding of the history of Hiroshima. Our brilliant lunch spot was a hidden gem. I highly recommend choosing this tour and any other that Keiko offers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Neal! I'm happy you enjoyed my tour and I really enjoyed being with you, too. I hope Hiroshima's sad history will contribute to everyone's happy future. And I think Hiroshima's local food contributes to everyone's happy lunch time. Please remember me and Hiroshima when you talk about Japanese food!
Eryn HoffmanUnited States
Keiko is a wonderful guide! She is very kid friendly (we have 2 young kids and she did an excellent job), very patient, and knows so much about the history of the places we visited. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a fun day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Eryn. It was a great day for me, too. I was very happy to be with your kids. Maybe next time I will invent a funny game that your kids love!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christian, thank you for rating! I'm happy that you enjoyed my tour. I had a great time with you, too. Please say hi to your family!
This was a wonderful day and Keiko was an excellent tour guide whilst also having a very friendly outlook, we felt like we were being shown around by a friend. Her knowledge of the history of Hiroshima was exceptional and we learnt so much on the day. We would not hesitate to recommend Keiko to anyone who wants to spend a great day in Hiroshima.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm message, John! I had a really wonderful day with you, too. Hiroshima has a sad history but we had a good chance to talk about better 'future'. Let us be a small piece of the peaceful world!
Keiko was a great guide. She shared her personal story, which made visiting Hiroshima more meaningful. She also shared many details of life in Japan and Japanese culture. We had a great day, lots of fun and learnt stax!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mironne! It was really a wonderful day. We talked a lot and laughed a lot together, which I believe will be a small step toward a peaceful world. It is my pleasure if today was a memorable day for you.
