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.

“ 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.

“ Very nice tour guide ”

We, a family with two daughters were very enjoyed to have Chizuru to guide us through our short stay in Hiroshima.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much for your high evaluation for the guide. I'm also glad to know that your family enjoyed the sightseeing in Hiroshima. Though I worried about the weather in the morning, it got very nice in the afternoon. I also had a wonderful day with your family. I appreciated it. I wish you have a wonderful vacation and a Happy New year!

“ The perfect guide for all generations ”

Chizuru is the perfect guide! She adapts to your time schedule, your interests. She knows a lot about everything you see, she is the perfect time manager to visit as much as possible without putting pressure on anyone and helped us a lot with the travel preparations to Naoshima. We would recommend her to anyone!

CHIZURU:

Hi Ann, Thank you very much for your mail and quick review. I'm glad to know you and your family enjoyed the island. I appreciate you came all the way to Naoshima from Kyoto. I know you got up very early morning. And you took four trains, ferry, two buses before getting to the main museum, Chichu Art Museum. In spite of that, you said "It was worth coming here." I was very happy to hear that world. Thank you very much. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.

“ Great Guide for Naoshima Island ”

With Chizuru as my guide for two days, I was able to fully experience and enjoy Naoshima Island. She greeted me in Okayama and shepherded me from there on in. I didn’t have to figure out transport, tickets, timings or food or accommodations – just fully enjoy the place. Chizuru’s English is very good and we discussed many topics, not just the art and architecture. Having the two days meant that the pace was easy AND we got to see everything. A very professional guide, she is also kind, gracious and generous with her time and her knowledge. Don’t miss Naoshima! One days is better than none, two days are better than one. Highest recommendation for Chizura as your guide.

CHIZURU:

Thank you for your very generous complement. You stayed at Benesse Hotel. We could spent two full days at the island. Thanks to this situation, I was able to have many first experiences. I could join the night program by James Turell at Chichu Art Museum. It gave me a precious time. I was able to walk into the guest room area which looks simple but very sophisticated. We could take enough time to appreciate many art works in each place. I appreciate that you visited in Naoshima and chose me as your guide. What a wonderful time we could share! Thank you Barbara!

“ A Day in Hiroshima ”

My wife and I had a fantastic time in Hiroshima. We went to the Peace Park, A-bomb dome, and Miyajima. Chizuru was very flexible with the schedule and really showed us a great time.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much for your review with a high evaluation. It was a beautiful day. Thanks to nice weather, we took two ropeways to Mt. Misen and we were lucky to be able to see a panoramic vies of Seto Inland Sea and many islands dotted there. I'm glad you could have wonderful time in Hiroshima. I hope you will come back to Japan again.
