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..

“ Must have Mayumi for your Hiroshima guide. ”

Having a guide like Mayumi is almost mandatory when traveling to a foreign country.She has excellent communication skills and must have spent many more hours in preparation for our perfectly guided tour.She was just as engaging from beginning to the end.We only wish that she could have accompanied us to other cities throughout our travels.

“ Mayumi is an excellent guide. ”

Mayumi could not have been a better guide. She was there waiting for us at the ship with a taxi. She was well informed on the sights we saw. Mayumi had a very good sense of humor and made us most comfortable. Her English was excellent. We would like to thank her very much.

“ Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was an excellent choice for our visit to Hiroshima. She was very knowledgeable friendly and spoke excellent English. My husband and I felt as if we had a friend to join us in Japan. She was very professional and caring and took great pains to ensure everything we needed was available. My husband needed extra time to walk and she easily accommodate us as well as keeping us on schedule. Highly recommend

“ Great day in Hiroshima with Mayumi! ”

Mayumi was really great. She met us at the hotel promptly and confirmed our plan for the day. She was educated, informed, polite, and directed us perfectly. She also arranged our transportation back to Kyoto which was very helpful and time effective. Thank you Mayumi! We highly recommend you.

“ Fantastic tour of Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was a fantastic guide for our day tour of the Hiroshima historical sites and Itsukushima shrine/Miyajima island. Mayumi was flexible in the lead up to our tour, working with us to craft an itinerary that made sense given our time constraints. While the historical Hiroshima sites are deeply personal in nature, Mayumi interjected appropriately and provided supplemental information to enhance our learning experience. Mayumi went above and beyond, spending extra time with us to ensure we got as much out of the experience as possible. I would recommend Mayumi to anyone considering booking a guide in the region.
