Important

The grand Tori Gate of the Itsukushima shrine in Miyajiam is fully covered with scaffold now due to its replacement work. The city government has started to investigate its condition to identify the damage and will decide a replacement or repair method. The completion period has not been set.
However what Miyajima has is not only the Tori Gate. 14 % of the whole island was designated as a world heritage site. The gate is just part of it and I believe you still cannot miss this beautiful island even the gate itself is covered unfortunately. Thanks for your understanding.

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 or the transportation mode, though. Let me give you some idea.

*For HIROSHIMA/MIYAJIMA tour, it will cost about 2000 JPY
Break down = Central Hiroshima -via Hiroshima Sta.- Miyajima Sta. < 190JPY by tram/ 420 JPY by JR for 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 50 min.) to get there. But it will cost you only 270 JPY. Additionally, from a window of the streetcar, you may enjoy the charming townscape of Hiroshima/nearby local towns and the serene Seto inland sea.
Pleasure boat also operates directly from central Hiroshima to Miyajima Island. (2200JPY. Round trip: 4000JPY)

Can I make changes after I book?

Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email

Starting and ending points of the tour.

What happens after I book a tour?

After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.

Is the price per person or per group?

The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.

Can I add more people to my booking?

Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.

Will there be other tourists in my tour?

No. Your tour is private, only for you and your family or friends, there will be no other group of tourists together in your tour.

Can the guide pickup me at the airport?

Yes, but there will be additional charge for that and it is not by car. The guide will go pick you up using public transportations. For further details, please contact your guide directly.

I'm travelling alone. Can I book this tour?

Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.

“ Loved Rabbit Island and was able to stop at ”

Had a wonderful day with Mayumi. She was so helpful and patient. She worked very hard to do everything I asked and more. I really enjoyed talking to her and learned a lot. She is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun! We went to Rabbit Island and talked a lot on the way over and back. I know I was an unusual client since I am quite old and still asked to go to Rabbit Island. :) She packed a LOT into one day for me. It is a day I will remember always. Thanks Mayumi. I hope I can return to Hiroshima some day to do some more sightseeing. I did not have time to see everything. I need to return.

MAYUMI:

Dear Carol, I thank you so much for the excellent review you kindly posted! I am very happy you loved the tour with me. I also loved the wonderful time spent with you. There is a famous Japanese idiom which describes a cultural concept of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment; Ichi-go, Ichi-e. It can be translated as " once in a life time" or " treasure every meeting as it may not come again". However I can’t wait to have you back here, Lol. Wish you great health, happiness and successful business. Best. Mayumi

“ Mayumi is fantastic ”

We had a very memorable day with Mayumi, who was most generous to make herself available on New Year’s Day for us. Her insights and connection to Hiroshima and its history made the day much more interesting, and helping to navigate Miyajima island on such a busy day of the year was invaluable. We would highly recommend her.

MAYUMI:

Dear David, I thank you very much for such a nice review. We just opened the book which pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book's first chapter is New Year’s Day and I was fortunate I spent great time with you to start with. Happy New Year! Best, Mayumi

“ Extraordinary Guide! ”

We had a wonderful day with Mayumi. She is a wealth of knowledge and learned so much from her. She made great suggestions that helped maximize our day. Her English is also perfect. My 12 year old son was completely engaged on the tour and learning about Hiroshima’s tragic history from Mayumi. I would definitely recommend her.

MAYUMI:

Dear Meredith and Family I very much appreciate your great review which makes my day...or my year?! Lol. Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the year to come. May God pour love and care on you all. Warm regards, Mayumi

“ Visit to Hiroshima and Miyajima with Mayumi ”

We (2 adults) spent a day with Mayumi in Hiroshima area, visiting Miyajima and the peace park. Mayumi is a knowledgeable and friendly person, speaking exceptional English and we had great time. I am only sorry for allocating only one day for the area. If it is your first time to Hiroshima, you will need at least 2-3 days to visit the places we did as well as the Castle, Japanese Garden and the city itself.

MAYUMI:

Dear Gal. Thank you very much for your good review. Wishing you all beautiful moments, treasured memories, and all the happiness a heart can know. Happy New Year!
