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.

My sister and I recently had the good fortune to take a tour of Naoshima with Chizuru. What a wonderful day we had! Chizuru met us promptly at the ferry dock in the morning and whisked us away on an art adventure. She took us to several Art House Project sites in the Honmura district, the Ando Museum, Chichu Art Museum, the Benesse House Museum, outdoor artworks including the Yayoi Kusama yellow pumpkin, and the Naoshima Bath I Love YU. There's just no way we would have been able to navigate that many locations and time it all properly without Chizuru's help. Chizuru is so knowledgeable about Naoshima art and shared so much with us. We really appreciated her generosity, kindness, humor and all of the ways she helped make the day seamless and fun. She rearranged her schedule to meet us... read more
Hi Paula, Thank you so much for your wonderful tour review. I’m glad and appreciate to receive that. You also gave me a fortune to be able to join a part of your special trip with your younger sister. I really enjoyed spending a lot of time talking with two of you. I wish you your health and happiness in the future. Warmest thought for Christmas and a Happy New Year! Chizuru
We had a wonderful day in Mia Jima and Hiroshima with Chizuru. Her English is excellent and she arranged our tour in a very thoughtful and convenient way, so that we could see as much as possible in the short time we had available. She even was able to take us on a high-speed boat from Miyajima Island to the Hiroshima peace park to save time. We were interested in a particular local dish, and she found a lovely restaurant for us, and ordered the food so that we had a fantastic meal. We particularly appreciated the way she showed us the peace park – her explanations were very thorough, heartfelt, and sensitive. It was a wonderful day and I highly recommend Chizuru as a guide!
Dear Molly, thank you for your tour review with a high evaluation and a lot of complements. I’m so glad to receive it and really appreciate it. Thanks to your cooperation, everything went smoothly in the limited time. I also enjoyed the tour with all of you. Thank you so much and I wish your health and happiness. Chizuru
We had hired Chizuru in Hiroshima because of my mother-in-law who has knee problems, and could not take the tours provided by the cruise company. Without surprise, Chizuru was like the previous reviews, an experience tour guide who has extensive knowledge of the island and the shrine. My family is very pleased with her service.
Hi, Bee-Lee, thank you for your tour review with complements. I'm glad to receive it. You were traveling with parents-in law. You supported them a lot. I believe they must have been very happy to have a wonderful time with you. I also enjoyed traveling with your family. Thank you for sharing a good time. Chizuru
The transportation in a day tour to one of the most important art center in Japan is not obvious. There is one taxi in the island, Ten vessels goes daily from Takamatsu and if you miss them or the local bus your trip to Naoshima will be absolutely not effective. We hired Chizuru and everything went smooth. We visited many interesting unique and hidden spots. Chizuru followed our priorities and offered unknown places from her experience. Lots of photo oppertunities and never missed any transportation mode. She has vast knowledge regarding the island and the art pcs. and artists. So we enjoyed very much her guidance during our day trip to Naoshima and hope to hire her again in the future.
Hi Avi Thank you so much for your tour review. I was surprised and very impressed by your comments because you recognized everything within a few hours that I always keep in mind such as the route, the transportation, the artworks, the artists and so on. I noticed that you were appreciating artworks and taking pictures of them quietly. Now I know that you are used to travel and have a sharp sense to recognize surrounding situation. I’m very grateful your complements. Thank you again. Chizuru
Chizuru is a great guide. She took care of all the logistics so all I had to do was show up. She had a lot of knowledge of the island and it’s art projects. She pointed out details and things that I wouldn’t notice or see on my own. I’m really happy I decided to get a guide for the day. I couldn’t have seen or learned as much as I did without her help. Plus she’s very friendly!
Hi Jenny, thank you for the tour review with a high evaluation. I also had a wonderful day with you. You are so lucky because of a nice weather and less crowded sites. We could go to the most art sites including an artistic shrine building on the top of the hill. It is often deleted because it takes time to go. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. Lastly, thank you for a mail with a picture. Arigatou!
