You can visit two World Cultural Heritage sites in one day. One is Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The other is Miyajima (correctly known as Itsukushima).
Hiroshima now gets a lot of attention internationally as the first city in the world destroyed by the A-bomb ever used in human warfare.
After the WWII, the Peace Memorial Park was constructed as an expression of our sincere desire for lasting peace in the world. Across the river from the park, you will find the A Bomb Dome which used to be the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. The ruins of the building has been preserved as a symbol of “No More Hiroshima” so that people would never forget the tragedy of the A-bombing.
There are various memorials, monuments and other buildings within Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, each of them telling its own story. Please try to listen to the silent story and re-think the importance of the world peace.
Itsukushima shrine has more than 1400 years of history. Itsukushima, one of the Three Most Scenic Spots in Japan, is the World Heritage Island that has been worshiped as a sacred island since ancient time.
You can reach there only by a ferry boat or a ship. While crossing the serene Seto Inland Sea (15 minutes cruise), you will soon find the grand vermilion shrine gate. As the ferry approaches the gate, you will realize how big the gate is! This is the only moment you can see the gate from the front side. Don’t miss the perfect shot. When the tide is low, you can walk close to the foot of the gate.
After getting off the ferry, you will be welcomed by a lot of wild deer. They are friendly and look cute. But they are wild. You must be careful not to be deceived by their friendly attitude. They need not you but your bag or food!
As the building of the shrine was built over the ocean, it looks as if it is floating when the tide is high. While you are walking through the shrine, you will feel calm and peace and you also find the Japanese outstanding architectural techniques of the shrine building to keep the shrine from corrosion.

Good day despite rain. Chizuru met us at our ship in the port with a taxi. Toured Peace Park and A bomb dome and Museum. Raining hard so could not see all the memorials. A highlight was the lunch she guided us to on Miyajima Island. It was a Japanese “pancake”, crepes with cabbage, pork, oysters and egg filling. Fun to watch it be prepared, Good English speaking guide.
Hi Fredrick, thank you for the tour review. Though the heavy rain fell for a while, the weather wasn't so bad on that day. Thanks to few tourists in both places, everything went smoothly. I appreciate that you took a through look at the exhibition of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. I would be happy if you could tell people around you the heartfelt wish of the world peace of Hiroshima. Thank you! Chizuru
I commend Chizuru-san’s caring attitude and professionalism. She is knowledgeable and observant. She is also quick in checking information for me, and great in managing timing to ensure the full day trip is smooth. I enjoyed the conversation with Chizuru-san, and look forward the next trip to engage her service again!
Hi Regina, thank you for your tour review. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour so much and the peach picking. You came to Okayama in the best season of peach picking. (Then September is the best season for grape picking.) Okayama is called "Fruit Kingdom"! I hope you will enjoy that next. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you. Chizuru
We had a great time going around with Chizuru. She was helpful from the start, helping me plan everything to make sure we have a great experience. She was also incredibly flexible when needed and was a great host to the Islands. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting a kind, friendly and attentive guide!
Hi Scott, I appreciate your tour review with a high evaluation. I had a wonderful time with you and your wife, Yan for two days. The weather was nice for both days. I relieved that everything went so smoothly though there were lots of people because of the international art festival. I wish you the happiness of your family. Chizuru
Chizuru was a great guide for my daughter and myself on a day trip to Naoshima Island. The logistics of getting to Naoshima and then getting around the island via busses were more than I wanted to plan, particularly with a child in tow, so it was great to be able to just relax and let someone guide us. She was also quite knowledgeable with respect to the art/architecture that we saw. I’d definitely recommend Chizuru as a guide.
Hi Alisa, thank you very much for the tour review with a high evaluation. I appreciate that. I really enjoyed the tour with you and your daughter. She was very nice and seemed to get used to traveling abroad. My daughter is already grown-up, so I really enjoyed the time with a child like you daughter. Thank you for coming all the way to Naoshima and I hope you will come to Japan again. Thank you. Chizuru
We met Chizuru promptly at 9.30 am in our hotel lobby. Our day was well organised and the timing of our visits to The Peace Museum and Miyajuma were not hurried. Chizuru speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable. She went out of her way to help us buy some items in the supermarket after our trip. We thank her very much and would recommend Chizuru as a guide. J and K
Hi Kathryn, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I’m very happy to receive it and glad to know that you enjoyed the tour very much. That was the most perfect day for sightseeing. It was a little cloudy day. The temperature was not so high. We enjoyed walking. And any sightseeing spots were not so crowded. Everything went so smoothly. So we could add one more spot. That is a beautiful Japanese style “Migratory garden, Shukkeien” That garden is a place to rest and relax for the people of Hiroshima. I’m glad to see you enjoy one of Hiroshima specialties, Okonomiyaki. Thank you for the wonderful time with you. Chizuru
