Overview

This tour covers all the attractive places to see in Miyajima island. We visit Itsukushima Shrine, Mt. Misen and Daishyoin Temple in one day. Mt. Misen is very high, so we should use aerial ropeway. We may walk for a long time, so please wear comfortable clothes on the day.

What to Expect

Itsukushima Shrine is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Japan. Its vermilion colored Torii gate, though a little faded now, is a well-known symbol of this World Heritage Site. Miyajima island ,however , is not a special place only for this shrine. The island itself has a sacred atmosphere. In Mt. Misen, you'll find quiet and secluded places for the ascetic training of Buddhist priests in old days. In Daishyoin Temple, you'll see many unique Buddhist images and experience impenetrable darkness. And in Itsukushima Shrine, you'll be aware of Japanese traditional aesthetic values. In this tour, I'd like you to feel heart and soul of the Japanese.

Hello, my name is Azusa Arita. I'm a licensed tour guide in English. I think there is no big difference between what Japan is today and what you see about Japan in manga, except " Naruto." ( Sorry but Ninjya is no longer exist.) Japan is a two -faced society, a society of modern technology and that of tradition. That's why it seems mysterious and difficult to understand. Hiroshima is a good place to experience the both aspects of Japan. Do you know the darkness in which you 'll be a new person, or the special way you can gain the same amount of wisdom written in Buddhist scriptures at one time?
Let's go and find the answers to these mysteries in Hiroshima. I'll make sure you have a great time in this tour. read more

Very Good

“ Good English speaking guide for Hiroshima ”

We had a 4 hour tour seeing the main highlights of the city which we thought was enough to experience the history of Hiroshima. Azusa met us at the train station as we traveled from Kyoto on the day and took us to the various areas on public transport which is very good and helped us see the city. Azusa is a retired English school teacher and lovely lady. We enjoyed the half day with her.
