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., ,
And the Admission fee to Miyajima Shrine ...... 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. ,
Takehara - Tadanoumi port - Okunoshima(Rabbit) Is..

“ Hiroshima and Miyajima with Mayumi ”

Mayumi put together a perfect itinerary for our day - a morning trip to delightful Miyajima and an afternoon in Hiroshima, visiting the Peace Museum, the park and the A-bomb dome. Mayumi was very helpful, knowledgeable and informative and was most considerate in planning our day - highly recommended!


Dear James Thank you very much for your nice review. It was a great pleasure to have met you two. I hope you continue your great journey with your beautiful wife. Bon Voyage!! Best, Mayumi

“ Excellent half day tour of Hiroshima ”

Excellent communication and half day tour with Mayumi. We were able to go through Peace Park museum, Atomic Dome, Hiroshima Castle and glean tons of interesting information from Mayumi's expertise in the city. Especially neat was a trip to the elementary school museum where there were post bombing messages recovered from underneath the walls.


Dear Steve. Thank you very much for your generous review. I had a wonderful time thanks to you and Patrick. I never knew that the Peace Museum is that quiet and calm before 9 am (chuckle)....New finding. Usually I go there during the daytime when it is very crowded. Hope you continue a wonderful travel throughout Japan. All the best, Mayumi

“ Amazing knowledge and kindness ”

Mayumi had an amazing knowledge of Hiroshima and gave us information and experience at sights we would never have received on our own. She is a very gentle sole and was very kind and considerate - to give my husband and I the right amount of time to look at the peace museum Mayumi offered to make paper cranes with our young daughters. While they experienced many of the a-bomb artifacts, some of them were too horrific. Mayumi knew exactly how to manage our family experience


Dear Mechelle, I very much appreciate your heartwarming message. I was so fortunate to be able to spend some time with a wonderful family like yours. You are so lucky to have such beautiful and smart girls. They are just adorable. I just dream of the world where all the children can live in peace. Sol...how is the snow over there? Enjoy skiing very much? Did you have a chance to see monkeys bathing in hot springs, LoL. Please have lots of fun with the girls in cold & cool Japan!! Thank you so much. Mayumi

“ Great day out in Miyajima Island and Hiroshima ”

Well worth engaging a guide like Mayumi. We got to fit in alot in the one day, and see things that most people wouldn't know about or see. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Miyajima island is definitely worth the visit, and Hiroshima of course is a must and is a real eye opener - very heart wrenching. And Mayumi got us seats at one of Hiroshima's best restaurants that night, where there is usually a long line of people waiting outside :) Thanks Mayumi :)


Thank you very much, Ben. You are my very first reviewer in 2019. It was fun and great when I was spending time together with you and your cool friend. And I really admire your unquenchable thirst for discovery or daring attitude toward something new (wired?) especially FOOD. Raw Horse meat, Chicken Sashimi, Whale, Narezushi…. you said you even tried Salamander here….Wow, I’ve never had none of them yet in my life except whale meat. Did you finally try Natto you bought and kept in the fridge of your hotel? (chuckle) Hope your wife are happy with a good luck charm you kindly bought at the shrine, wishing her good pregnancy and delivery. Parenthood is one of the best but challenging journeys in life. Enjoy the ride. May your new world as a daddy be filled with love. All the best! Thank ... read more

“ Excellent Hiroshima & Miyajima Guide ”

Mayumi was an excellent guide for my family and I in Hiroshima. She was honest about what we could do in the time allotted and was very insightful throughout the tour. She was thoughtful when it came to my elderly parents by making sure they could find seats on trains and the ferry. She provided both historical knowledge but also answered all of my questions regarding daily life in today’s Japanese culture.


Dear Brian. I very much appreciate your review. I am so grateful for your kindness. I believe your parents had a lovely time with fantastic sons here in Japan. It is my pleasure if I could be of even a little help for your big family travel. Please give my best regards to your wonderful family members. With gratitude, Mayumi
