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..

“ Beautiful and thoughtful time visiting Hiroshima. ”

Mayumi was excellent and very knowledgeable. We spent the day going around Hiroshima city and Miyajima. Hiroshima can be a sensitive place to visit, especially for someone from the US. Mayumi handled it wonderfully. She knew when to talk, and when to give me a chance to reflect while at the memorial. She answered all of the questions I had, and eagerly shared her knowledge. Miyajima was beautiful. Again, Mayumi was very knowledgeable about the area and gladly shared information. The walk and ropeway to the top station of the mountain is well worth it.

Special thanks for brinigjng in the umbrellas for the rainy day. We indeed loved the day and time spent in Hiroshima which was really enlightening and soul stirring.

“ Wonderful tour of Miyajima and Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was a wonderful guide! We were delighted to have an insider's view of both Miyajima Island and Hiroshima Peace Park. Highlights: incredible English fluency, warm, flexible, and deep understanding of the history and importance of these sites. To have my son and nephew learn about Hiroshima through the overwhelming stories and the living history, is to change their world view forever. Thank you Mayumi!
