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..

“ Went the extra mile ”

Mayumi was a Hiroshima “expert” based on personal experience and study. She provided insights and details we never could have picked up on our own. She was very warm and friendly and gave us additional information about other trips, bus schedules and whatever we asked.

MAYUMI:

Dear Sheila, I appreciate your kind message. I bet you enjoyed Miyajima very much on the following day. The weather was perfect, wasn't it? Please continue an awesome trip throughout Japan! All the Best, Mayumi

“ Wonderful Private Half Day Tour of Hiroshima with Mayumi ”

We recently went on a Windstar cruise in Japan and had a short stop in Hiroshima. We pre-booked a half day tour with local expert, Mayumi. We found Mayumi from a list of available private tour guides from the TripleLights.com website. From the planning stages, she communicated thoroughly with our itinerary and answered any and all questions very promptly. We had only half a day at port and so we wanted to see the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park. She met us at the port and from there, she navigated our way throughout the day by means of subway and bus. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is very well laid out and very moving. Mayumi highlighted the important aspects of the museum in areas where the crowd of people hovered and disguised some of the displays. Mayumi's Engli... read more

MAYUMI:

Dear Jamie, I can not thank you enough for this generous message. Even personally you gave me an email via TripleLights, saying you were sorry for the delay to write a review because of the inaccessibility of wifi over the tour.... What a considerate person you are!I I very much appreciate your compassion for other people. We had only four hours and I really wanted to show the things over here as much as possible. I still feel very sorry as I had made you walk that much. But you kept calm, trusted and followed me till the end of the tour. I was very much blessed, Jamie. Wish all the best for you and your husband. Sincerely yours, Mayumi

“ Wonderful Cultural Tour ”

Thank you Mayumi for such an an amazing tour, the Peace Park & Museum was a very emotional experience & will stay with me forever... thankyou. We loved the ferry trip & the whistle stop tour of the World Heritage sight Miyajima. Our tour far exceeded our expectations your knowledge of your history & culture. A very big thank you & hope to return.

MAYUMI:

Dear Jane Oh, thank you very much for your swift and lovely review. Such a wonderful day I spent with you two, who have full of sense of wit and humor. Really fun to be with... Hope I will be able to see you again someday and next time I will definitely take you to the top of Mt. Misen in the Miyajima island (chuckle). Please continue your wonderful cruise to China and have lots of fun over there as well. Bon Voyage! Mayumi

“ Great tour! ”

Mayumi gave us great information on getting to Hiroshima from Osaka. Met us as planned, and had a great itinerary laid out for us. She spoke great English and provided good information on sites we visited as well as answering all our questions. She was personable and friendly, kept us on schedule to see all she had to show us but was flexible to stall when we wanted to take more photos or ask more questions. She was helpful getting our train back at the end of the day as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Mayumi!!

MAYUMI:

Dear Randy. It was a wonderful day I could spent with you two. Although we had been worried so much about the weather, it turned out a bright and beautiful day. In this kind of situation, We Japanese use an idiom like this ... ”Taifu ikka" which means ”the clear sky after the storm“...It was great. I really appreciate your participation to my tour. Wish you good heath and happiness always! Best. Mayumi

“ One day Hiroshima/Miyajima Island tour ”

Mayumi gets a 5+++++ rating from us. The amount of time and effort she put in BEFORE our tour even began, to help us connect with our long lost relatives in Hiroshima was unexpected and 100% appreciated. Whether or not we did connect with them wasn't the issue - the amount of effort and interest she gave was most impressive. What started out being a Hiroshima/Miyajima Island one-day tour became a heartwarming reunion with one relative we met 23 years ago and many new relatives. Mayumi, instead spent the day with us interpreting important information about our relatives including visiting the gravesite of an aunt. Much more priceless to our family than the original tour. From this meeting, we exchanged emails and will continue our connection. We did do a quick tour of Miyajima Island... read more

MAYUMI:

Karen....your comment is more than I deserve. I can not thank you enough. The day I spent with you all and your relatives surely was something to me. Thanks to many nice people and good fortune, it happened. Hope this wonderful bond will continue for ever. Your mother-in-law gave me a heartwarming letter with an unexpected gift at the end of the day. She extended her gratitude to you and your tireless efforts to make it happen as well in her letter. What a wonderful family...each one of them is very much considerate and always cares for each other. I was very grateful. Arigato Gozaimashtia. Mayumi
