It was alot of fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of bow and arrow, but was also a great coach. He helped us improve our aim so we could hit the target. I highly recommended this experience

Yuko was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with. It is so nice to have a local guide who can share details we would never learn on our own.

Yuji was fantastic. He was organized. Very knowledgeable and friendly. I could not ask for a better guide to Hiroshima. I cannot recommend him highly enough. David Kenney MD
