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.

“ Delight and satisfaction ”

我々はモスクワから来たロシア人の3人のグループですが、千鶴さんとお過ごしした2日間はとても良かったです。偶々英語より日本語の方が出来て、日本語で案内をするのは依頼しました。そうして倉敷と直島を観光で見てきました。どれで快適なスケジュールで充実した観光でした。説明が分かりやすく、面白かったです。千鶴さんの人間的なカリスマにも感激。千鶴さんのような知識深い、経験の豊富、コミュニケーションお上手なガイドさんはいるのがとても助かります。安心して、誰にでも推薦することが出来ます。千鶴さんをご紹介したTriple Lights もどうも有難うございます。

CHIZURU:

今回日本語でのガイドという事で気持ち的にはとてもリラックス出来ました。タチアーナさんの素晴らしい日本語力でコミュニケーションも十分に取れ、皆さんの要望に十分にお応えできたと思います。私自身、同行の旅行者のような感じで、一緒に楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。皆さんが安心して楽しく観光ができたという事がガイドとして何よりもうれしい言葉です。有難うございました。

“ Charming and super efficient ”

We cannot thank Chizuru enough for our wonderful 2 days on Naoshima Island. She communicated with me quickly , suggesting the best options for our visit. She meet us in Okayama on day one with a big smile ,and a schedule for our 2 day visit, which covered all we wanted to see and more. There is no way we could have negotiated the islands local buses, museum and resturant open times without her efficient guidance. Chizuru is delightful company and a wealth of knowledge about the Island , its history ,and Art works.

CHIZURU:

Thank you very much for the tour review with lots of complement. I also fully enjoyed that two-day tour with your wonderful family. I'll never forget that beautiful sunset. I'll have that tasty special coffee we enjoyed in the morning whenever I go to Naoshima. I pray for your family's good health and happiness. Chizuru🎼🗽🛳️🚄🌺

“ Naoshima—Art and the Inland Sea ”

My wife and I had looking forwRd to seeing the architecture of Tadeo Ando and the contemporary art installations of leading artists in those buildings. Our trip was fantastic and Chizuru did a marvelous job of showing us all of the most interesting installations and helped us understand the marvelous integration of Ando’s buildings, courtyards and galleries with the art installations. She is very knowledgeable about the work and architecture and quickly understood our interests and depth of knowledge and was able to tailor the day to make it most interesting and rich for us. The ferry ride to the island in the Inland Sea (Seto) was also a highlight. The jagged islands, peering ghost-like out of the mist in the morning and more substantial at the end of the day we’re so beautiful. As we walked around Naoshima, Chizuru made sure we were able to take in the beauty of the island and the incredible views of the other islands and the sea. Chizuru is a lovely, intelligent woman and we really enjoyed spending the day with her, as much like a friend, as a guide. We would love to travel with her again and have her help us understand other sights and parts of Japan.

CHIZURU:

Hi Drew, Thank you very much for the tour review with lots of fabulous words. Your sentences remind me of the pleasure of the trip. I'm very happy to know that you and your wife were fully satisfied with the Art Island and a beautiful nature including Seto inland sea. I wish you will come back to Japan and I'm looking forward to seeing you again.

“ A Wonderful Day ”

Chizuru gave us a terrific day in Hiroshima. She showed us everything I had asked to see, explained a lot of things without overloading us with too many facts and answered all our many questions! She took us to a fabulous little place for lunch and gave us both a small present at the end of the day. That was unexpected and really appreciated. She even gave us hints of what to see at our next destination. And train details as well. Her English is excellent. Don’t hesitate to use her services. She is a lovely lady. Thank you Chizuru.

CHIZURU:

Hi Suzie, Thank you very much for your quick review with a full of complements. As a guide, this moment is the most happy. I really appreciated you and your friend Heather visiting to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum. You are messengers to convey the preciousness of peace new. I pray for you and your family's good health and happiness. Chizuru

“ 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.

CHIZURU:

Hi Carol, Thank you very much your review with a lot of complements. As a guide, this moment is the most delightful. I hope you will come back to Japan and visit many other beautiful places. Wishing you and your family health and happiness. Chizuru
