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 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.

“ Fantastic lady and a great guide ”

I had a small group of 7 people, all well travelled and looking for satisfaction in every aspect on a visit to Hiroshima where Chizuro San led us beautifully. Her personality as well as her knowledge of the area was amazing. She very kindly helped me with advance hotel arrangements which need a change I could not manage myself. I just wish she could have led us on the complete trip of Japan.

CHIZURU:

Hi Kevin, thank you for the tour review with the high evaluation and lots of complements. I appreciate it. I'm glad I could help Judy find the portrait and the profile of her friend’s sister who past away as a result of Atomic bombing at the research library in “Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims”. During lunch time, we enjoyed “Okonomiyaki”, most popular local food in Hiroshima, at the Teppan-Yaki restaurant which the taxi driver recommended. I ate Okonomiyaki many times so far, but the Okonomiyaki in that restaurant was the number one!!!

“ Chizuru is a wonderful guide, who worked tirelessly both before and during the tour to enhance our experiences ”

Chizuru spent a lot of time before our tour trying to find and organize some specific requests we had for our special hobby interests. Chizuru knows how to fade into the background when you are happily occupied ,but to step forward immediately when you have need for her. She was very solicitous of my bad knee, always pointing out a ramp, elevator, to aid me. Finally, Chizuru is friendly and charming to be with. Her English speaking ability is good, you will be able to understand her. I highly recommend Chizuru, the time you spend with her will be one of the highlights of your Japanese trip

CHIZURU:

Hi Richard, thank you so much for your review with a high evaluation and lots of complements. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. You will be one of my forgettable customers because of a huge number of e-mails we exchanged, more than 50 times. What I’m most sorry to say is that I couldn’t make one of your wishes come true, MT factory tour. I wonder how many or much “Japanese paper and Washi tape” Zia bought. I hope she will make a lot of wonderful works by using them.

“ Great tour ”

We had a great tour with Chizuru. She was very knowledgeable about where to go, how to get there and what we saw. The tour was a highlight of our trip. Thank you.

CHIZURU:

Hi JD, thank you very much for your quick review with the high evaluation for the tour. It was Sunday and in the middle of Spring break of Japanese school students. I was worried that the museums would be very crowded. But fortunately, we could see paintings and experience unique art projects without waiting for a long time. The tour went very smoothly. Thank you for your cooperation and I appreciate the wonderful time you shared with me. Thank you JD & Damon

“ A day to reflect on history ”

Chizuru was a great guide and I would recommend her. She met us at the train station and walked us to our hotel to drop off our luggage, which was very nice and helpful. Chizuru was very informative and navigated our way through several locations very easily. Chizuru explained the history of the bombing and gave us historical facts all throughout the bomb site, museum and children's monument. It was a good experience to reflect on the history of nuclear war. Next we went to Miyajima which was also excellent. I would highly recommend visiting both sites in the same day. We did NOT feel rushed, and it was a great day. Thank you Chizuru!!!

CHIZURU:

Dear Karen, Thank you very much for your highly evaluation with a lot of complement. I'm very happy to receive it. Though the starting time was a little late, everything went well including the weather. I'm very glad to meet a nice family like you. I appreciate that I could have a pleasant time with you. Thank you Karen!

“ Port day in Hiroshima ”

From the first time I contacted Chizuru she was prompt, professional and efficient. I arranged a a 7 hour tour for 8 of us from our cruise ship. We used public transportation, shuttle bus, street car, ferry and train. She knew the exact routes we needed, went to the window and bought tickets for our group and was alert to the fact that 2 in our group moved a little slower and used elevators whenever possible. (I mention that she saved time buying group tickets at the window as a previous guide had me go to the machine and buy tickets there with a maximum of 3 at a time. Her way was much quicker than my stumbling thru the directions on the machine and foreign currency). We appreciated her explanation of the places we went and then the free time to explore on our own. We especially appreciat... read more

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much for your review. I really appreciated your help and preparation for a big group trip. I really enjoyed traveling with your group. All of them are very friendly and cooperative. Thank to everyone's cooperation, we could finish the tour smoothly and safely. I'm sure you are a big planner and you will make an another trip plan with your friends. Please have a wonderful time and enjoy your life.
