Frequently Asked Questions

I want to go and see as much as possible....

I will arrange the tour as you like. Central Hiroshima and Miyajima may be covered in one day. Takehara tour needs a whole day if you start from your Hotel in Hiroshima. So you cannot get everything at the same time. If you want to experience more, you had better extend your stay here in Hiroshima. It is worthwhile. I am sure my plan lives up to its promise of offering something memorable to everyone.

I want to know how much our transportation expenses will cost.

It depends on your plan, though. Let me give you some examples for "one way fare".

*For HIROSHIMA/MIYAJIMA tour, it will cost about 750JPY (Round trip: 1500JPY)
Break down = Central Hiroshima -via Hiroshima Sta.- Miyajima Sta. < 160JPY by tram/ 410 JPY by JR and 30 min. ride>,
Miyajima Sta. - Miyajima Is., <180 JPY by Boat>,
And the Admission fee to Miyajima Shrine <300JPY>...... One suggestion…if you have enough time, I really recommend a tram-ride from central Hiroshima to Miyajima Sta.. It takes time, about 80-90min. to get there. But it will cost you only 260 JPY. Additionally, from a window of the tram or streetcar, you may enjoy the charming townscapes of Hiroshima/nearby local towns and the serene Seto inland sea.
Of course, a pleasure boat is also operated directly from central Hiroshima to Miyajima Island. (2000JPY. Round trip: 3600JPY)


*For TAKEHARA Tour, about 1800 JPY (Round trip: 3600JPY)
Break down=Central Hiroshima -Takehara Sta. <1290JPY by bus /90 min. ride>,
Takehara - Tadanoumi port - Okunoshima(Rabbit) Is.<510JPY by JR and 310JPY by boat>.

“ Hiroshima Dsy Tour ”

Miyumi is an excellent tour guide. She has expansive knowledge and was extremely helpful in ensuring a full day sights. Her English is great and she was flexible when changes came up.

MAYUMI:
Wow, I greatly appreciate your swift action, even for this review. You are a very active and energetic woman which I really admire. Yesterday, everything went so smoothly thanks to you even in that yucky weather. Hope you will have a wonderful dinner tonight at the restaurant of Tokyo, which you mentioned and enjoy Okinawa and Korea for the next two weeks. It was fun meeting you. I thank you very much again, Cheryl.

“ Wonderful Custom Hiroshima Tour ”

We communicated via email w/ prompt replies and detailed information & itinerary. She was at the port before our Oceania ship arrived and soon on our way to Miyajima by taxi then train. Mayumi showed us the highlights but if I wanted to detour, it wasn't an problem. We saw Miyajima and A-bomb Dome/Peace Park, plus some shopping and sushi lunch. Everything was paced properly and she was a pleasure to hang out with for the day. Highly recommended English speaking certified tour guide.

MAYUMI:
Thanks a million, JT. I am greatly honored with your words. It was my pleasure to be able to spend some time with you two. You are such a wonderful couple who shares the common interest…. travels. In addition, You are punctual, meticulous, thoughtful, and sometimes very humorous. It was a great day for me as well. I thank you very much again and wish you lots of happiness through traveling from now on. With gratitude, Mayumi

“ Meticulous and well-thought through itinerary ”

Mayumi was very detailed in her planning of our itinerary. She catered well for us including a child of 4 years old. Itinerary included "breaks" or walking through interesting shopping arcades

MAYUMI:
Thanks, Alan. I really enjoyed the time I spent with you and your family. Your child is just adorable and very smart. He kept asking "why? Why ?" and tried to understand the things and phenomena in his own way. You guys are lucky parents. Hope you all continue having a good family-time through traveling. Please give my best regards to your beautiful wife and a bear hug to the little gentleman.

Excellent 3 hour tour of Hiroshima with focus on the A-Bomb monuments and the Peace Museum. I enjoyed the tour very much and was deeply moved by the visit in the Peace Museum. I can only recommend everybody to hire Mayumi for a guided tour to see the peace monuments. It is truly unforgettable!

MAYUMI:
I appreciate your feedback, Jacob. You said you learned about Hiroshima at school, but had never understood what happened here…seeing is believing. I humbly admire your graceful manner to accept things for what they are. And I really enjoyed the marvelous and artistic photos you took during your stay in Japan. I will check it out from now on. Thank you again and good luck for the rest of your journey.

Mayumi-san was the best choice for our customized tour! Not only before the tour, during the tour but even after the tour, she has been professional and with a positive attitude. Before the tour: she has communicated perfectly and helped with putting together the best itinerary using the time available and attractions desired. During the tour: she gave great information, respected the schedule, had a great positive energy and a constant friendly smile on her face. After the tour: she made sure everything was in order with the just finished tour. One of the highlights of the tour in Japan! Thank you Mayumi-san!

MAYUMI:
My heartfelt thanks to you, Iani-san for giving me such a wonderful opportunity. I’ve had fun getting to know the people you sent to Japan. I just loved every minute of being with them. They are brimming with curiosity and try to understand Japan profoundly. In addition, they know how to make life brighter! I thank you all for the lovely day filled with laughter and good conversation. With gratitude, Mayumi
