TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wolfgang It was a boiling summer day. But we were able to enjoy this Hiroshima tour thanks to your generosity and understanding. Lunch, we had Okonomiyaki, it was a very good time to talk with you about the A bomb and Peace. I like those people who have good family like you. Please Enjoy Yakushima, really a fantastic Island. \(^-^)/、I appreciate your nice review to me.

This tour was fantastic, we really enjoyed the day with Yuji. He provided transport around in his van which was great. He has excellent English and is really friendly and informative. He provided both cultural and funny facts throughout the day. He also gave us free time throughout the day to look over the areas ourselves which was a nice touch. Overally this tour was great and we highly recommend it as a way to see Hiroshima.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicholas We met at a big seaside hotel and it also was a fantastic day for me. Having a wonderful time with newly wed couple reminded me of my younger days. 2 pair of chopsticks are my wish for your love forever. Regards Yuji

We booked Yuji for a one day tour of Hiroshima. The trip was a lot of fun. We found Yuji to be quite different than the other three guides we used in Japan. While the other guides were reserved Yuji was much more like a western guide. He did not wait for questions rather he spoke as things unfolded. He also was very careful to involve the whole group. We had a great time cruising with Yuji in the cycling van in a well presented and organized tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We enjoyed a lot, various kinds of jokes on Miyajima, Shrine Island. And talked about a bit about the difference of each religions in the world. Thanks for your great help and generosity, I could finalized this tour successful. I traveled many countries in the world by cycling and backpacking, this experience helps me to have good communication with visitors from different countries and regions. I much appreciate your joining to my Hiroshima day tour.

I can't recommend Yuji enough. Our exchange began with him making himself available on the one full day we had in Hiroshima. We were so grateful—and so lucky! Yuji is such a generous guide—with his time and his spirit and commitment to providing the most memorable day possible, adding so many unique details and touches along the way. He shared all kinds of interesting facts and history at every point. We also loved the access to his car. To spend a day with Yuji is to have a day you will not forget.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kelly Time flies like an arrow, but I cannot forget the a wonderful day with you. It looked like as we were in a fantastic movie. Thank you for your nice review to me. Your kind and considerate words encourage me very much. I also have a tour today because of high season. I’m bit tired, however your heartfelt message is the best medicine or tonic to me. I’d like to see you again. (^o^)/

Yuji is terrific. His English is perfect, he is courteous, helpful in every way, and we thoroughly enjoyed our day touring Hiroshima with him. He drove us in his van to our various destinations, and we felt completely safe with him. Unfortunately we had a rainy day, but Yuji provided us with umbrellas, and drove us door to door where ever possible for our comfort. We give him our highest recommendation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gerald We talked about the professional baseball things between US and Japan, Yankees and Carp (Hiroshima based team). Happened to see the priests procession at Miyajima. And surprised to see the Parasol Tree affected by the A-bomb still alive with its second generation. Although rainy day, we probably enjoyed the somewhat different aspect of Hiroshima. Thank you for your joining my tour and good review. Regards Yuji

This was the most memorable day of our Japan experience. The cultural and customs shared by Juji was outstanding. Our 11 yr old grandson said it was a very interesting learning experience and he thought Yuji was a top person. Thank you Yuji from the bottom of our hearts, special thanks for accommodating our slower pace.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr. & Mz Williams. I also really enjoyed great time with you. At first time your boy seemed very shy, but we talked each other little by little, he opened his mind to me then at the end of our tour, I found His full smile. At the Peace museum I saw Shelley had tear in her eyes, at that time I realized the importance of peace again. Mr. Williams witty jokes, I really enjoyed. Thank you and see you again. (^o^)/

My family had an absolutely WONDERFUL experience with Yuji on this tour! We experienced so much of Miyajima Island and the Peace Park and having Yuji guide us made it that much better. Yuji is incredibly knowledgeable and shares his information in a fun and interactive way. He did a great job of pacing the tour, taking breaks, sharing information (and jokes) and provided tremendous insight about Japanese culture and the places we were visiting. You should ABSOLUTELY book a tour with Yuji!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Esoteric Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhiest Sand Mandaras, Hidden Maple Trails, Dark Buddhist Pilgrimage underfloor corridor and 450 Deer on MIyajima. A-bomb survivors' testimony, talking with real survivors and what is most is the miracle basement where nothing changed from the time of the A bombing. Thank you so much, I had a really great time with your family. Sunlight was so severe and hit us like an impression of the A bomb. Sea breeze at Miyajima made us comfortable like our smiles while talking. (^^)/

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heriberto, It's the end of the rainy season, but like a day summer peak day. We sweat a lot, told a lot, learn a lot and smile a lot. Thank you very much for having a Hirosimae tour with me. I had a great time with your family. Hasta luego. (^o^)/

Yuji was an excellent guide and great host! He went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience in the Hiroshima area. Nothing was too much trouble and he was quite knowledgeable about the things we were interested in. As well as all that he is a great guy, very funny and just good to hang out with!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grant Thank you for your nice review for me. It was also a great day for me. We really enjoyed wistful jokes foe each other. We are both Carp (Hiroshima local Professional Baseball Team) enthusiasts. Again, I much appreciate your heartfelt attitude for me. Please come again to Hiroshim, I'm longing for your surprise visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. John Weymouth I also had a great day with you all. Kaiten-zushi literally means "circulating sushi." Plates of sushi are set on a conveyor belt encircling the serving bar, and as the plates pass by, the customers select what they want. It was a very unique but joyful sushi restaurant. I'm very glad that you satisfied that. Thanks a lot and see you again. (^o^)/ Best Regards Yuji A

We weren't sure what to expect when we scheduled our tour, but were blown away by our experience with Yuji. While the Hiroshima experience was acceptable and met our needs, the real treat was our experience on Miyajima. We had an opportunity to explore, ask questions, and even experience a Buddhist blessing. I am so grateful for the experience we had and would recommend Yuji to anyone who has the chance to explore with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice review to me. I really enjoyed the tour with you all. Joking, sealing, exploring and especially cherry blossoms viewing. Again, thank so much.(^o^)/
