Yoshimi was a wonderful tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, interesting, and courteous. Our day was well planned. We also enjoyed Yoshi's recommendation for a typical Japanese luncheon at a local restaurant. The "Okonomiyakis" - savory pancakes were absolutely delicious!! We thank her for an amazing full day tour and a memorable experience! We highly recommend Yoshimi if planning a trip to Hiroshima.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for visiting Hiroshima and thank you for the feedback. I am glad to hear that you liked Okonomiyaki so much. When people of Hiroshima hear that you like Okonomiyaki, they love you!LOL It is been very hot still, but it is another good memory, is it not? Once again, thank you! Yoshi

Yoshi is an outstanding tour guide. She guided us through an informative and heartfelt tour of the Hiroshima Peace Park, and provided an incredible depth of information about each building, statue, memorial, and museum. She also expertly guided us through the Shrine and Buddhist Temple on Mayajima island, bringing us to little known spots that others passed right by. Yoshi is friendly yet professional, and a great conversationalist. I highly recommend her as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for sharing good time with me in Hiroshima. After you left, Hiroshima had heavy rain killing many people and destroying roads and rail roads. It was a relief that we had a tour before the heavy rain and you enjoyed the tour. You were in luck!

My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our day with Yoshimi. She not only customized a day trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima for us, but she also assisted me with appropriate train schedules. She is very knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited and shared much about Japanese culture. She also suggested a traditional Hiroshima lunch which we might not have otherwise experienced. I highly recommend touring with Yoshimi. We are honored to have spent our day with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU for sharing good time with me. I really appreciate your visit to Hiroshima. Learning about peace at Peace Park, eating maple cakes, etc, we did a lot that day. I was also wondering if the Japanese sword fit in your suitcase all right. I was very happy to have a wonderful family. Thank you.

Ms. Yoshimi picked us up right at our train carriage and was a great guide. We actually came the day of the Osaka earthquake and all the trains were delayed, but that was fine. She kept the interest of our 3 boys through what was a pretty strong experience. She was also patient with our complicated lunch requirements and we had a great trip. She made sure that we made our train back to Kyoto including a race through the Hiroshima train station! Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ahmed. Thank you for the feedback. And once again thank YOU for visiting Hiroshima. You were very lucky in that you were already in Himeji when the earthquake occured and you were able to come back to Kyoto after trains started run again.In July, Hiroshima had a heavy rain cuasing damage on houses and roads. But buth Peace Park area and Miyajima had no damages at all. Please say hello to your wife and your 3 boys for me. Yoshi

We love Yoshimi! She is an excellent guide - very knowledgeable about the history of Hiroshima and the culture. She taught us about everything every step of the way and showed us the greatest spots! We will definitely book her again on our next visit with parents.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for visiting Hiroshima.The most memorable tour I have had, since I spent so much time to buy tickets, collected information from everyone and learned a lot about tickets. (And heavy fire balls!)The time we spent in the stadium shop was also enjoyable! I am jealous of you because you got replica uniforms before I do! I would love to see you in red uniforms when you come back to Hiroshima. Thank YOU.

Yoshimi was an amazing guide for our tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima. She was very knowledgeable about the history of all events and we learned so much from her ! Seeing the museums and memorials in Hiroshima is a must see for anyone touring Japan and she is the perfect guide to explain the history and peace message. Miyajima was magical and she explained the history with perfection. We also enjoyed the Oriziru tower where we learned origami. She was so gracious ! I would highly recommend her !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for sharing good time with me. You have a wonderful daughter and a wonderful family. I also learned a lot from you. I now would like to study about Civil War and Invasion of Normandy. Thank you!!
Yoshimi was a delight. Informative, pleasant and good company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for visiting Hiroshima to learn about A-boming. I will continute to tell people history of Hiroshima. Thank you so much for sharing good time with me.

We had a fantastic tour in Hiroshima with Yoshimi. She was very considerate to our needs and very good with our 2 children. Her knowledge of the areas we visited was excellent. We would recommend Yoshimi very much as a tour guide for Hiroshima.

Yoshi guided us to experience an incredible day visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum & surroundings.It is heartbreaking and eye opening.The museum itself is beautiful and tastefully presents the timeline of events.She gave us insight into the lives of her family at that time.It was a meaningful story with a different perspective that touched us in a much more significant way.We saw the National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims & walked by the the Atomic Bomb Dome. A must do
We undertook a tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima yesterday with Yoshimi. She was Excellent!......her English was exemplary, her knowledge endless and her kindness unbounding. She kept us on time, making every moment worthwhile whilst not rushing us. We learnt and saw so much we would not have seen on our own. To anyone planning a trip to Hiroshima I would urge you to use the services of Yoshimi. You will not regret it

I took a lot of tours to Japan and this was one of the best tours I've been on. Yoshimi was a very good tour guid. She was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. we covered a good amount of things in a short time. If your going to visit Hiroshima you should book this tour guide for sure.
She has lot of knowledge about culture of Japan and etiquette. Great conversationalist. Her personal experience and insight about the life of Japanese and also the war made the tour better. We could not take full advantage of her itinerary due to rains, which she had warned us in advance of.
Dana S.United States
Great guide! We had 8 people and she designed a special tour just for our group. We covered both the Atomic bomb area and Miyajima. Wish we could have spent more time in Miyajima but were squeezing a lot into the one day we had in Hiroshima. Yoshi was very informative and put together a great day for us.
Paul OchsnerUnited States
Yoshimi hosted my wife and I on a well paced tour of Hiroshima and the nearby island of Mirajima. She's a fluent English speaker making conversation easy. She is from the area and her personal stories adds a human touch to those horrific events. We had a great day and would highly recommend her to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for visiting Hiroshima and sharing the lovely day with me. I have learned a lot about dress code in the US. And I really enjoyed the conversations with you. Thank YOU. Yoshi
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Yoshida was terrific!!!! She was a charming, well spoken knowledgeable young lady. She made our day a complete pleasure. We ran into a problem by leaving something behind. Yoshi went above and beyond to recover our left behind items. We can't even think of enough superlatives to describe this lovely lady. We left Hiroshima with a true appreciation of this charming city because of Yoshi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was the most unforgettable tour for me, since it was my first experience to deal with that kind of things. But you left them on the perfect place! On the sacred island! Thank you, gods and goddessess. And thank YOU for the lovely day.
My husband and I had an excellent tour today with Yoshimi, her English, her knowledge of the places we visited and organisation could not be faulted. We would highly recommend her for tours of Hiroshima, thank you Yoshi for a wonderful day you are a gem.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing good time with me. I was really happy to have a beautiful couple with me today. You were just like spiders walking on the wall when you tossed your paper cranes. It was one of the unforgettable memories for me as well. I can't thank you enough. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.(With a 90 degree bow.) Yoshi
