Mie was a very special guide. She met us early at our Ryokan & came prepared to help us really understand the history and significance of the sites we were seeing in both Miyajima & Hiroshima. She brought a book of maps, photographs, & drawings which enhanced our understanding. She helped us navigate buses, trains, ferries & even the high speed boat with ease. She explained how high & low tides affected the viewing of the landmark O-torii Gate & Itsukushima Shrine. We are so grateful for our exquisite day

We were very happy with our tour with Mie. She had great knowledge of the area, which she shared with us. It was a very hot day in Hiroshima and my husband was not feeling well because of the heat. She made the trip as pleasant as possible for us and even went to the train station with us to change our tickets to an earlier schedule to accommodate our needs. She was most helpful and we were appreciative.

We had a great half day tour in Hiroshima with Mie T., who served as a private guide for my husband and me. Mie has a personal connection to the Hiroshima bombing, which brought an added dimension to our exploration of the Peace Museum and Park. Mie provided insightful commentary throughout the day, and pointed out little things that we never would have noticed/understood the significance of. She generously extended her time with us so that we could see all of the sites in the Park.

My family and I spent a wonderful day in Hiroshima with Mie! She took us first to Miyajima island with its giant torii gate and took us back to the centre of Hiroshima by the fast motorboat. In Hiroshima we visited the Memorial Park where she told us a lot about the tragedy of war and provided accurate details about the tragedy of nuclear weapons. She was a very kind and helpful guide for all of us!

Mie is very knowledgeable and freely shares her knowledge. She also listens well and responded thoroughly to our questions about Japanese culture and history. Her attention to detail was evident, as she planned our day to avoid certain locations at their most crowded times. Our pace was good -- we did not feel rushed through any sites, but also did not waste time unnecessarily. She provided a wonderful overview and introduction to the Hiroshima area.

Mie communicated freely before our tour and adjusted the tour earlier start time to our liking. She was very informative and even booked us lunch at a local okonomiyaki restaurant as she knew that the island of Miyajima would be busy with tourists. She was also very knowledgeably with the history of Hiroshima.

She could speak good English. Brought us to the places we discussed upfront. However, she did not give any guidance within the musea. We had to explore ourselves. We would have hoped she give more guidance, like which are the highlights and not spending too much time at one floor. Another thing was that she did bot know which musea was closing earlier in Kure, which I would have expected of a tourguide as research before starting our tour.

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.

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!!

Thank you Mie for a wonderful tour. We were able to see the two world heritage sights in your city and it was very moving. We could have spent a number of days but our schedule only allowed us one. That means we will be back. Great tour.......

This was a custom family history tour. The goal was to visit the family sites of two ancestors in two different villages in Hiroshima-ken. The addresses of the residences were known. We wanted to see where they lived, visit their temples and their cemeteries. We didn't start out knowing if there were any relatives still living in the area. Mie not only found the area where they lived but arranged for meetings with relatives and the minister at the temple. The tour couldn't have been better. Thank you Mie

Mie was a great tour guide. She's very knowledgeable about Hiroshima and Miyajima island. Our group ranged in age from 22 to 89 and she was very accommodating to everyone. Because of issues with the shinkansen, she was able to help us re-book our return trip after the tour. Thanks Mie!

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.

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.

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.
