What to Expect

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 than1400 years of history. Itsukushima, one of the Three Most Scenic Spots in Japan, is the World Heritage Island that has been worshipped 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.

Hi, I’m Chizuru Morofuji. Please call me Chizuru. I’m a government licensed guide and I’ve been working as an interpreter guide for seven years in the area of western and southern part of Japan.

I love my job and I enjoy meeting people from various countries. I have an experience to study in the U.S. for two years. During my stay, local people gave me a plenty of help and kindness. Thanks to their help, I was able to finish my study there. Now it’s time to express my appreciation to people who need help.

I love the word “Ichigo-Ichie、(一期一会)”, which means “Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur”. I’m sure, I’ll do my best to make your experience in Japan the most wonderful and enjoyable one.

Let’s have wonderful time with me! I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.

“ Miyajima and Hiroshima ”

What a delightful lady--kind, patient, and caring. We had a wonderful day. She has much knowledge on the subject matter. We went to Miyajima first because she felt it would be too crowded in the afternoon. Yes, she was correct. She found a delightful place for us to eat lunch. We were then off to Hiroshima. Her information was perfect. We were not rushed one bit. We would recommend her to anyone.

“ Excellent Guide! ”

While in Japan we had two professional guides from different companies. Chizuru was by far the best of the two - it was not even close. She had great communication beforehand and throughout the day. She was extremely conscientious about making sure we had the best experience throughout the day. In fact she went above the call of duty. There was a possible typhoon coming in that day and she made sure we caught the fastest trains and kept track of the typhoon on her iPhone throughout the day. She was kind, very friendly and knowledgeable. Professional tour guides are costly but Chizuru was well worth the price. We would never had the same experience visiting Hiroshima and Miyajima Island. If we ever return I will hire her again!

“ A day visit to Art Island from Kyoto ”

Our plans for the day were quite ambitious - a return day visit to Art Island from Kyoto. We could not have had a better guide than Chizuru. She was very organised, incredibly well informed about the island and the art and graciously shared this knowledge. She was a delight to spend a day with and had an amazing level of energy which ensured we saw a great deal on the island (lots of walking involved). She also gauged our areas of interest and tailored the tour to cover this. We felt incredibly fortunate to have had such a wonderful guide which resulted in a magical and unforgettable day. It was a 15 hour return day trip from Kyoto but Chizuru smoothed the way for us from the moment we meet her en-route.

“ Very good guide, English was perfect ”

Chizuru was a very good guide, well spoken English and very caring throughout the trip, through lunch, the various museums and taking us back all the way to the hotel in Okayama.

“ Very sweet ”

Chiruzu was very efficient and responsible! She kept in touch and notified us along the way before meeting! She found all the highlights to see! Unfortunately, she did not offer much to each highlight and when it came to the Peace Museum we were tired and she made it seem like we weren't missing anything! We had a chance to go back the next day and felt she should have impressed upon us how vital this was in understanding the tragic event of April 6, 1945, as it was something we will never forget! A very sweet woman that is anxious to please, but needs a little more urgency in what is really important when you have one day to see!
