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.

“ Half Day in Hiroshima ”

Chizuru was great! She met us at the train station, as we stepped off our train car! She was warm and friendly. We spent the afternoon visiting the Peace memorial and museum as well as a delightful stop at the Japanese Garden also in Hiroshima. She was very well informed and able to answer our questions easily. Her English is excellent, as she was an English teacher. We shared an excellent meal at a local restaurant. All in all I would highly recommend Chizuru as a gude. We had a lovely time. Thanks Chizuru!

“ Excellent guide, very good company ”

Chizuru is so well organised that even the weather cooperated! We spent a full day touring Myajima, and were lucky to see the famous torii at both high and low tide - what a treat! We climbed to the highest point on the island for 360 degree views of the Seto Sea, and along the way Chizuru patiently answered all my questions. Today we visited Naoshima: I couldn't have made such good use of my time without Chizuru's expert knowledge about the locations of artworks. I really enjoyed hearing the history of Naoshima's tranformation, and learning how many of the artists have involved the town people in their work. Definitely book Chizuru as your guide!

CHIZURU:

Thank you for your quick review and lots of complement. Your requests gave me a lot of challenge, which I enjoyed it in the end. I hope that you will come back to Japan and have a wonderful experience to stay in the fabulous hotel in Naoshima. Hope to see you again.

“ A day for reflection ”

Chiruzu is delightful! We were made to feel at ease straight away. Out tour consisted of the A - Bomb Memorial and Miyajima. Whilst our day started out sombre, by the afternoon Chiruzu was laughing at my husband’s terrible jokes. It was a great way to reflect on differences, history and similarities. Chiruzu has a lovely manner and we were very grateful to have her as out guide. She is very knowledgeable, thorough and funny! We highly recommend her. Thanks you Chiruzu for such a lovely day. We sincerely hope that we get to meet you again.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much your review so quickly. I'm happy to receive lots of compliments with high evaluation. I felt like I was traveling with my old friends because I enjoyed the story you told me about your family, pets, job, work shop, and so on. I was also impressed by the pictures of your art works you showed me. Thank you very much for sharing wonderful time with you. Hope to see you again.

“ Amaizing day ”

Thanks Chizuru For making our day in Hiroshima and Miyajima such a wonderful day. The "tips"that you gave us about visiting Naoshima were great help and make our self day trip easy to manage. It was great privilege to meet with you. Anna and Gadi

CHIZURU:

Hello Anna and Gadi, Thank you for the review with high evaluation! I also had a wonderful day in Hiroshima with two of you. I'm glad to know that you managed to visit Naoshima, the island of contemporary arts by yourself. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip, take many many pictures and make wonderful memories of Japan. Chizuru
