What to Expect

A more favorable option, my tour is geared for the more independent-minded travelers. This option lets you customize your one day tour with a variety of activities. Your day in Hiroshima is a blank page, waiting you for writing your own tales.
If you want to extend your activities to other prefectures, it may be also planned as you want it. First up, please contact me.

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..

“ 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.

“ 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

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-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!
