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 in 6 hours with a great guide ”

Mayumi organised the day so that we could see all the main sights in 6 hours. Her English is great and she has a warm naturally friendly personality so we enjoyed spending the day with her. She has great knowledge about Hiroshima which was a pleasure to listen to.


Dear Alison i am very grateful to have accepted your benignant message. You did this right after you arrived back at Kyoto after the long day yesterday, didn't you? Even personally you gave me a thoughtful email via TripleLights last night. Thank you so much, Alison. You had only 6 hours and I really wanted to show the things over here efficiently. I felt so bad when I missed our bus depot and we lost some time. But your family kept smiling and trusted me till the end. I am blessed. Wish you and your family good health and Happiness. Sincerely yours, Mayumi

“ Excellent tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima ”

We did a day trip to Hiroshima from Osaka and hired Mayumi to take us around in order to maximize our limited time and I am so glad we did. Mayumi was a fantastic resource for our time on Miyajima as there is little signage there so without a guide you end up missing half of what there is to learn and see. Since we only were in Hiroshima it was helpful to have Mayumi go over much of the history of Hiroshima before and after the bomb strike which helps us get through sites in Hiroshima faster and make our return train back to Osaka. Huge thanks to Mayumi for providing an excellent and informative visit.


Dear Zach I appreciate your thoughtful note and the wonderful day with you. Even before the tour, you had nicely responded my mails and thoughtfully shared your information with me as time went by. It was a clear sunny day, although we anticipated the tour day would be raining. In Japan, if things go well contrary to expectation, we say that it is just because your every day actions are good. Thank you, Zach. Best, Mayumi

“ Two days trip of Hiroshima ”

We were a family of four including two teenagers. We had a one and a half day trip of Hiroshima with Mayumi. She showednus Memorial Park first half day and Miyamaji Island tour next full day. We used the public transport but she made it very efficient. She is very knowledgeable about the history and told of lot of tit bits. It was hot that day when we toured with her but she made sure we were comfortable. She stopped and helped my wife several times since my wife had trouble walking due to arthritis. I would highly recommend her without reservations. I will definitely use her services again. Thanks Mayumi for you help!!


Dear Premila I highly appreciate your prompt review like this. I reached home safely just one hour ago. Thanks to your kindness, I really had a great time with you and your family, although we had very hot days. You looked like a really happy dad with your children. I also enjoyed Miyajima beer, Thanks!! (chuckle). Hope you will have a pleasant flight back to the States tomorrow. Please give my best regards to your beloved family members. Bon voyage. With gratitude, Mayumi

“ The peace memorial and her explanation ”

We had a great ytime and she was a wonderful guide.


Thank you, Mr & Mrs. Norman. We never thought that we could have that kind of deluge of rain in Hiroshima, which caused a lot of fatalities and paralyzed our transportation systems. Although things are getting back to normal little by little, we still need more time to rehabilitate. I greatly appreciated your kind understanding about the circumstance we have been facing now. Wish you good health and happiness. With gratitude. Mayumi

“ Day in Hiroshima (with kids!) ”

We had a well planned day with Mayumi. She coordinated train times for us coming from Osaka, was very informative and flexible/helpful with our 5 year old twin boys.


Dear Lisa Thanks for the review. How is your journey going? Hope you enjoyed the Japanese base ball game with your family. Didn't you have any influence of the crazy rain last weekend? Hiroshima got hit very badly but we will be fine. Thanks. Mayumi
