Mie was a wonderful guide for our half day tour. She catered for the wide-range of ages in our family group and ensured we all got to see the things we wanted as well as educating us about the history of Hiroshima. Thank you Mie for a wonderful tour!
Mie gave us an incredible tour, she's very Knowledgeable, kind and we were able to see and understand so much in so little time. Highly recommended. Thank you Mie
Mie was very knowledgeable and she adapted the tour and her comments to our needs and questions. We thank her for the visit and recommend her to other visitors.

Mie was incredibly kind, patient and helpful. Due to our schedule we visited only the peace park and museum. Mie was informative and knowledgeable. In addition, Mie was invaluable in helping as purchase a complicated array of train passes for our next journey. I would highly recommend Mie as a Hiroshima guide.
Michael SloadUnited States
Mie was terrific with her knowledge and made this tour more memorable.
We had a wonderful half day tour of Hiroshima with Mie. She was insightful, very knowledgeable and we saw and learnt so much more about Hiroshima having her as our guide. We would recommend booking Mie to anyone visiting Hiroshima.
Mie gave us an amazing whistle stop tour of Hiroshima Peace Park, fitting into our extremely tight schedule. Even though we had so little time, we are so happy that we did this tour as we would have missed most of the important background to the events in 1945 and the symbolism of the Peace Park. Mie also went out of her way, organising our onward travel, calling the hotel, etc. Highly recommended!

Mie was a very good guide. She was a good teacher as she shared information about the culture and history and color of Hiroshima.
Thomas ChastainUnited States
Very knowledgeable, spoke English very well
Andrew ZifferUnited States
Great tour in such an important place.
Gayla HarrisUnited States
Very knowledgeable, and was patient when we were late arriving from outside the city. The peace museum made me sad for the suffering of the Japanese people, very similar to the sadness of visiting the Holocaust museum in Washington. Our world history is tragic in many ways.
This was a very moving tour in the Peace memorial. Even though it was raining very heavily during our tour Mie coped with this admirably and altered the tour to take this into consideration. We still saw all we needed to see and I would recommend this tour and Mie to other travellers.

Steven MeeUnited Kingdom
We had a great tour with Mie T. She met us at the station and then took us to the memorial park and museum. She was full of information and very interesting. Would highly recommend a tour with her.
I was really impressed with the knowledge of my Tour Guide Mie. She really knew her stuff. At all times she considered how fast or slow I wanted to go through the tour. Mie explained,at each step, the significance of the places we arrived at. I recommend Tours by locals to anyone wanting to visit Hiroshima.
Jenna MesserUnited States
Mie was very nice but not very energetic or proactive in telling us the history of Hiroshima. The tour got a little boring.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: 'Thank-you for your feedback and I feel sorry for not attracting you throughout the tour. This specific tour is sensitive in nature and not based on fun but rather educational as we visit the a-bomb dome which usually makes customers uncomfortable. This tour goes over the war in Hiroshima so it is difficult to make it fun instead of educational but I do take your feedback into consideration for the future.
Andrew MarshallUnited States
We spent a delightful half-day with Mie walking and exploring only a small portion of Hiroshima, and it left us hungry for more. She was delightful, insightful, and incredibly knowledgable of the city and its history. Our tour flew by and it was made all the more wonderful by the detailed background information Mie shared that truly brought to life the many places we saw. We highly recommend Mie's services as a guide. She helped make our trip a memorable one.

She was a very lovely lady. A well organised tour with plenty of knowledge. She was able to answer all of our question and more and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible time in Hiroshima. Thank you!
Mie was an excellent guide for our school group. She was very accommodating and managed the time and our experience superbly. It was the best way for us all to see and learn about Hiroshima as we only had 2 days.
Keith B.Sandy, UTAH, United States
Mie was very helpful in showing us downtown Hiroshima. She was punctual, articulate, knowledgeable and pleasant. Wish we had more time in Hirishima. We would book with her again if given the chance.

Linda FosterUnited States
This was our third tour of our trip. We had great expectations. After first two guides : one in shaighai and one in jeju, South Korea , this tour was a little lackluster.While our tour guide was very nice, we had a hard time hearing her! If you were not in the front of the group, you missed much of the information! She took us to all the right places. Just wished she had been more informative!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your candid comment and sorry for my inefficient performance. As we had only a short time and most of the time we were walking with 8 people all together, I was not able to inform you with enough information. But I was happy to see you enjoyed wearing the samurai costume in Hiroshima castle. Please visit Miyajima next time when you have more time. I will try my best to improve my performance to be a better guide. Thank you.
Paul O.United States
It was very helpful to have someone there to give insight into the various memorials at the Hiroshima Peace park. Without Mie I think we would have just wandered around looking at things without understanding why they were there. Mie was very professional, from greeting us at the train station to helping us get on an alternate train for the return trip after the train we were intending to take was delayed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment and high rating. I am happy to know that I could help you travel around. I also relieved that you could get shinkansen. This time you experienced typhoon in Japan, but please come back some day again to enjoy the beautiful season!! I am looking forward to seeing you again.
Michael Waichi S.United States
Mie is an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about the history of Hiroshima and the atomic bombing. Presented insights into history of Hiroshima and it's importance in the history and development of Japan which left me quite impressed. World and military history is my area of interest - but Mie's grasp of history lfar surpasses mine. She even helped us negotiate the train station, including the baggage lockers, and got us to our train with time to spare. Thank you Mie for a very educational tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment and high rating. I also enjoyed your story and history as a third generation of Japanese American. Hiroshima has a long history of emigrating to the U.S. especially to Hawaii.(Some of my relatives emigrated to Hawaii and the West Coast) I have started to studying about the history as a guide in Hiroshima. Thank you for inspiring me. I hope you will come back to Hiroshima to find your relatives homeland. See you someday again.
