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.

“ Trip to Naoshima, the Art Island ”

Chizuru was an excellent guide. She was thoughtful, kind, articulate and extremely well organized. We spent a great day together walking all over the Art Island. The time I spent with Chizuru was the highlight of my trip to Japan. I would highly recommend her as your guide.

“ Fantastic guide ”

We could not have wished for a better guide for Naoshima.Her personal skills allowed us to engage in a relaxing and enjoyable way - her english was fluent and she had a sense of humour.Her knowledge of the island allowed us to see the maxmum in limited time as she knew how to priorize and her time management was spot on in terms of where to go first how long to spend in each place particularly to coodinate with buses. We could not have done this day programme and seen what we did without her excellent guidance Thankyou Chizuru for a wonderful and memorable day

“ 1 Day tour of Naoshima (Island of Contemporary Art) ”

Our 1 Day tour of Naoshima was a wonderful experience; mainly because we got to share it with Chizuru. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the art and where it is located but Chizuru's appreciation and enthusiasm for the works enhances the experience. She has a very good command of English and communicated clearly both in the lead up to the tour as well as during our trip. Chizuru is a kind and warm person who readily engaged with all members of my family. We felt like we were on an outing with a good friend. She really looked after us. It was the thoughtful little things that Chizuru did that made our day with her so memorable. We were sad to see her leave at the end of the day. Thank you so much Chizuru. We hope to see you again when we return to Japan.

“ Hiroshima and Miyajima ”

Chizuru is a warm and thoughtful guide. The first thing she did when she met us in Hiroshima was to give us hand warmers and a small gift. We enjoyed the sights, and certainly her company. We also had a really nice time in Miyajima with her, as she took us to the famous temple on the water, and walked through the village streets. We had a lovely day with Chizuru.
