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.

“ Best Guide In Naoshima! ”

We had a great time going around with Chizuru. She was helpful from the start, helping me plan everything to make sure we have a great experience. She was also incredibly flexible when needed and was a great host to the Islands. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting a kind, friendly and attentive guide!

“ Naoshima Island ”

Chizuru was a great guide for my daughter and myself on a day trip to Naoshima Island. The logistics of getting to Naoshima and then getting around the island via busses were more than I wanted to plan, particularly with a child in tow, so it was great to be able to just relax and let someone guide us. She was also quite knowledgeable with respect to the art/architecture that we saw. I’d definitely recommend Chizuru as a guide.

“ Hiroshima one day guide ”

We met Chizuru promptly at 9.30 am in our hotel lobby. Our day was well organised and the timing of our visits to The Peace Museum and Miyajuma were not hurried. Chizuru speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable. She went out of her way to help us buy some items in the supermarket after our trip. We thank her very much and would recommend Chizuru as a guide. J and K

CHIZURU:

Hi Kathryn, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I’m very happy to receive it and glad to know that you enjoyed the tour very much. That was the most perfect day for sightseeing. It was a little cloudy day. The temperature was not so high. We enjoyed walking. And any sightseeing spots were not so crowded. Everything went so smoothly. So we could add one more spot. That is a beautiful Japanese style “Migratory garden, Shukkeien” That garden is a place to rest and relax for the people of Hiroshima. I’m glad to see you enjoy one of Hiroshima specialties, Okonomiyaki. Thank you for the wonderful time with you. Chizuru

“ One day trip to Naoshima from Kyoto on May 28th, 2019 ”

Chizuru was an excellent guide, and she did an outstanding job helping us move quickly and comfortably to and from Naoshima Island by way of the Okayama Train Station, where she met our family on the morning of our day trip from Kyoto. We are a family of three adults, and we only had one day available to see Naoshima. She sheparded us from Okayama to Uno Station, then the ferry to and from the Island. We covered the Chichu Art Museum, the Benesse House Art Collection and the Art District in Honmura. We had lunch at the cafe in the Benesse House. Chizuru was very knowledgeable about the various art collections as well as the outdoor art installations and the history of the island. Her English language skills were excellent, and her friendly and kind demeanor made the trip with her very enjo... read more

CHIZURU:

Hi Steven, thank you very much for the tour review with lots of complement. I'm happy to receive it. I had a great time with your family. Before the tour you wrote me many times to inform me of your preference and requests. That helped me make plans and look for a restaurant for dinner and so on. I was impressed by your son. He is knowledgeable about the art and artists. I felt happy when I saw your son find and be excited about some artworks by the artists he knows. I appreciate that you spent some time at “ Izakaya” in Okayama and enjoyed the special products of Okayama after the tour. They are “Sawara, Spanish mackerel” and “Hiruzen Yakisoba, noodles baked on the hot iron plate”, which won the Grand Prize in B-class gourmet competition. I believe you enjoyed the whole day in Naoshima an... read more
