What to Expect

Itsukushima Shrine (Japanese: 厳島神社 Itsukushima-jinja) is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima), best known for its "floating" torii gate.[1] It is located in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (広島平和記念公園 Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen?) is a memorial park in the center of Hiroshima City. It's dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack, and to the memories of the bomb's direct and indirect victims (of whom there may have been as many as 140,000).

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we get to Miyajima from the Park.

I recommend the direct boat from Hiroshima Port to Miyajima. Although this is a little bit expensive but you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Inland Sea. There are also public transportation (tram, JR train, ferry).
You can use JR pass and Hiroden One day Pass. (very easy and reasonable way of looking around)I

“ Excellent tour of Miyajima and Peace Park ”

I can't provide enough praise for Yuji a highly encourage other visitors to book him. He was prompt, communicative, and took the time to understand our interests and cater the tour to those. He would often run ahead to get the car or purchase tickets to make the whole day seamless and efficient. His commentary and expert insights enhanced our experience immensely. Plus, he's a funny, great person to spend the day with! This is a no brainer choice if you're looking for a good, fun, knowledgeable guide in Hiroshima, who is also a good photographer! :) Thanks, Yuji!

Yuji:

It was also a great time for me to have a tour with your family. We experienced a virtual Buddhist reincarnation in the underfloor corridor of Daishoin Esoteric Buddhist temple, and also enjoyed a short Buddhist pilgrimage at Henjyoin Cave, your father’s jokes created a very friendly atmosphere among us. Thank you that you hired me and see you again. (^_^)v

“ Tour Of Hiroshima ”

Juji was our tour guide for the day in Hiroshima. He picked us up at the train station and made sure we got back in time for our departing train. Yuji has a vibrant personality and a great sense of humor which makes the tour fun. He is also very knowledgeable of the sights and history in Hiroshima. He took the time to educate us and to patiently listen to our many questions. If you're planning a visit to Hiroshima, I would not hesitate recommending Yuji. He is flexible and ongoing communication is very timely. Thank you for the great tour!

Yuji:

We enjoyed a lot, various kinds of jokes on Miyajima, Shrine Island. And talked about a bit about the difference of each religions in the world. Thanks for your great help and generosity, I could finalized this tour successful. I traveled many countries in the world by cycling and backpacking, this experience helps me to have good communication with visitors from different countries and regions. I much appreciate your joining to my Hiroshima day tour.

“ Hiroshima tour ”

Yuji was amazing!! met us at the train station and on we went. He knew the best spots to take pictures, showed us the local delicacies and gave us a lot information about japanese history and traditions. Very accommodating with our limited time schedule. I highly recommend him.

Yuji:

It was also an unforgettable day for me. Your consideration and smiles made our Hiroshima day tour so smooth like a mountain stream. Visited many photo spots as possible as we could. Thank very much for your nice review to me. Wishing your family healthy life and happiness. I’m looking forward to seeing you again. (^o^)/

“ Wonderful Experience in Hiroshima and Surrounding places. ”

Yuji is a wonderful tour guide that is willing to make you feel at home since the first minute. He is very knowledgeable and resourceful when it comes to adjusting changes in plans or customizing your needs. The trip to Miyajima Island was a beauty, the great Torii gate, the Itsukushima shrine, Daisho-In temple (my wife's favorite) and the Peace Memorial park. He was able to get us a permit to visit one of the historic sites not available to tourists without a government permit. Yuji also helped us adjust a missed reservation by calling himself to fix the issue at a different destination -Thank you Yuji, you are awesome :) Hiroshima was definitely one of our favorite destinations in our marvelous trip to Japan, we enjoyed very much and are already planning to come back in the medium run.

Yuji:

Experiencing the dark corridor of Buddhist reincarnation, abbreviated Esoteric Buddhist pilgrimage on Miyajima island, so called the miracle basement in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. I am a bit different type of tour guide because originally a Cycling guide. It is me to say Thank you, because your kind consideration made our tour amazing. Again I much appreciate you, I really enjoyed great time with you. Wishing your happiness forever.

“ Day in Hiroshima and Miajima ”

Spent a day with Yuji as our guide visiting Hiroshima and Miajima. Yuji met us at Hiroshima station, and for the next 5 hours, he was a wonderful guide to the area. He was knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited. He organized the tour so that in our limited time, we were able to see everything on our list. We first drove to the ferry for Miajima, Yugi brought us to the Ferry operated by JR, so our JR passes allowed free passage. Once on the island, he knew all the sights to see and all of the best photo locations. He was also an excellent guide back in the city of Hiroshima. Taking us to all of the important sites including the museum, peace memorial park, a-bomb dome, etc as well as a unique experience that many visitors are not afforded. Great personality as well. Yuji is highly recommended.

Yuji:

Thank you for your nice review for me. I should apologize that I made you haste several times because of tight schedule I planed. But I'm really glad to hear you could enjoy Hiroshima tour with me. If we had enough time, I could show you more hidden spots in Hiroshima. Hoping your visit Hiroshima again. I'm the guide waiting for your family. (^o^)/
