Mie covered two of the most visited sites near and in Hiroshima. We traveled to the island of Miyajima where Mie walked us through the main shrines at this UNESCO site giving us a thorough understanding of this sacred site in Japan's history. At the Peace Memorial Park and Museum Mie's clear English and connection to the community provided insightful responses to questions, facilitated discussion, demonstrated a depth-of-knowledge, and informed us about the bombing and its impact then and now.

Mie promptly met us at the appointed place and was easily identifiable by the sign with my name. She was ready to go and had a plan for the day. She was attentive to saving a seat for my elderly mother wherever we went and was very knowledgeable. We very much enjoyed our tour of Miyajima and Peace Dome Park.

Mie was very flexible in modifying our start time when we struggled with our airline reservation. She sent us bus schedules to facilitate our meeting. Mie speaks English very well but was occasionally too softly spoken. She was also flexible when we wanted to add a stop to our tour. We were very pleased with our tour.

Right from the start, because our train was running late, Mie was attentive and completely focused on us and our needs. She was very warm and friendly, informative and interesting, and had an answer to every question. Our only regret was that we didn't bring a little thank you souvenir for her from Down Under. Truely a five star guide!!

Despite the cold and damp weather we had an enjoyable tour of Miyajima Island and Hiroshima with Mie. Mie was an excellent tour guide. She was the consummate professional trying very had to make sure we had an enjoyable time. Her pride in her work as well as her culture showed with the historical and insightful information she provided at the locations we visited.

Mie was a wonderful tour guide! The day we spent with her was busy but leisurely; we moved at our pace and she adjusted the schedule accordingly. Mie was immensely knowledgeable and answered the many questions we had. While our tour included some of the most visited sites in Japan, Mie always seemed to know out-of-the-way locations that gave us uncrowded or unexpected views or information about the location. Mie was fantastic and we recommend her highly.

Thank you Mie, for a fascinating and really friendly tour of Miyajima and Hiroshima. We really appreciated Mie's friendly and knowledgable information about her city - her pride in being from Hiroshima was very clear! We had a wonderful tour of the island in the morning, including a delicious, good value lunch. After that we went to the Peace Park and saw all the sights, particularly poignant as it was 6th August, the anniversary of the bombing. Thank you again Mie - we are very happy to recommend you!!

Our day with Mie was abbreviated, through no fault of Mie's, as our shinkansen from Kyoto to Hiroshima was delayed by over an hour on the tracks along the way. We decided to concentrate on Hiroshima and we did not try to fit Miyajima in. Mie led us through the Peace Memorial Park, explaining along the way the significance of the monuments and historical sites. She arranged a delicious lunch for us at a lovely okonomiyaki restaurant. She stayed by our side helping to navigate and get the most of our day!

We had a great day. Mie is so knowledgable and explained everything in great detail. She somehow managed to magic away the crowds to make our visit to the shrine and temple on Miyajima really special. The tour of the a-bomb memorial was totally enlightening and moving. We thoroughly recommend this experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment and high rating. I am really glad to know that you enjoyed my tour and I also enjoyed being with you,talking a lot. How was the trip to Takayama? I hope you enjoyed rest of the trip in Japan. Please come back to Japan in another season to enjoy another beauty of this country. I am looking forward to seeing you some day again.

Mie-san was able to combine two World Heritage Sites into a half-day tour. Although we were rushed, she did explain what we were looking at. Next time, I will spend a full day at the Tori Shrine instead of just a few hours. Many blessings to Mie for knowing where to locate a rental wheelchair when my wife was overcome by heat and humidity. Thank you very much...Okini!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm comment.I am happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. I hope that you will stay longer and enjoy full day with a relaxed feeling next time. Please come some day and see you again!!

This is actually for Yumi because Mie T. was booked with another client. Yumi was fantastic. She had great local knowledge and showed me everything and more that I wanted to see in Hiroshima. I was particularly interested in the Peace Park and her insight as a second-generation atomic bomb survivor and the impact it had on her personally and her home town was an invaluable insight into the personal effects of the bombing in addition to all the horrific statistics. A definite 5/5. Kind regards, Julius

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment and high rating. I am very happy to know you had a great time with her,especially in the Peace Park. Hiroshima is always the very important theme for guides in this city,so I would like to share the idea of the world peace with people from all over the world through some monuments in the park and the museum.I am really glad If you share what you thought in Hiroshima with the people around you. Please come back again someday in another beautiful season!!

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with Yumi. In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.

Mie was totally professional in her work as a guide. Her knowledge of the area, her awareness of her clients' ages (77) and her preparation with maps, pictures and brochures could not be faulted. Thank-you Mie. So much better than a potted bus tour at about the same price.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind comment and high rating. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour, and I also enjoyed being with you. Guiding and talking with senior clients is very much fun for me because I can learn a lot. I hope you enjoy traveling all over the world and will come back to Japan someday again. See you again!!

We had a great visit to Hiroshima & Miyajima with Mie. She is very professional and a warm gentle person. We were a bit apprehensive about visiting Hiroshima initially but after the visit, we're so glad to have made the trip -especially the Peace Memorial. It was an impactful & memorable experience. Mie even brought along paper cranes and showed us how to fold it at the Sadako memorial! Thank you .. Arigato Gozaimasu Mie-san! =D
