Feel free to personalize this offer with MAYUMI.
Rabbit Island (the official name of this island is Okunoshima) is home to hundreds of friendly bunnies who approach tourists for food. Once this island was very secluded as a secret base of the Imperial Japanese Army to produce lethal gas during WW Two. For that reason, the geographical location of this island was left off the map for about two decades and workers there were forced to keep it secret. It is not known when and how rabbits were introduced to this island. But because of the poison gas development, it is thought that the test subjects included rabbits. After the war, the island restored peace and got well overrun by bunnies to become a Heaven of rabbits.
Please enjoy being mobbed by adorable creatures and the beautiful nature there.
Without a precise pre-scheduled sightseeing activities, this option lets you customize your day with rabbits on the island. Please be ready for the long journey. It will take more than two and a half hours to reach that heaven by train and boat.
Transportation fee about 3300JPY from Hiroshima to Rabbit island as a round trip.
Lunch (you.... and bunnies if you like)
The grand Tori Gate of the Itsukushima shrine in Miyajiam is fully covered with scaffold now due to its replacement work. The city government has started to investigate its condition to identify the damage and will decide a replacement or repair method. The completion period has not been set.
However what Miyajima has is not only the Tori Gate. 16 % of the whole island was designated as a world heritage site. The gate is just part of it and I believe you still cannot miss this beautiful island even the gate itself is covered unfortunately. Thanks for your understanding.

Mayumi was a fantastic guide, she organised a very busy day visiting Hiroshima and Miyajima Island she was very knowledgeable about the sites and we enjoyed learning all about the events of Hiroshima that changed this beautiful city. We would definitely recommend Mayumi as a guide she was fantastic thank you Mayumi
Mayumi was very informative. She was good humored. I appreciated that she brought origami paper and taught me how to make a crane, so I could add it to the Peace statue.
Dear Dana, I highly appreciate that you kindly took the time to write a review on the day when you are about to leave Japan. It was so much fun to know you, Dana. Wish you and your family good health and lots of love. Hope our paths cross again someday sometime. Best, Mayumi
We feel very fortunate to have had Mayumi as our guide today. Staying in Kyoto, we could devote only a day trip to visit the Hiroshima area, arriving at just before 10am and leaving early evening. Mayumi was however extremely organised enabling us to make the very best of our time. She also spoke excellent English, was knowledgeable about the sites and historical context and was also friendly and accommodating to our particular interests. The morning was spent on Miyajima Island. Although the famous Torii Gate is currently covered for renovation, there is so much more to see. We particularly enjoyed the Daishoin Buddhist Temple with many fascinating religious objects like the spinning scripture wheels up the steps, groping through the dark cave with the icons and all the little statues ... read more
Dear Andrew, Thank you so much for leaving me such an amazing review. I am definitely fortunate to read what you wrote and thrilled to know that you loved your experience yesterday. Yes, you are right! Although the famous Torii Gate in Miyajima is currently covered for renovation, there is so much more to see and enjoy. I have been always grateful for your considerate and caring attitude even from the very beginning of our communication. Please give my best regards to your beautiful wife and wonderful children. Isabel, please continue your study about Japan and let me know when you return to Japan someday. Next time I would like to welcome you as your Japanese friend, Not as a guide :) Best, Mayumi
We booked with Mayumi last minute for a one day tour. She met us at the train station as we were coming from Kyoto for the day. She was a wonderful guide with extensive knowledge of the area. She maintained a good pace allowing us time to take in the sites and gain some insight into the local culture. We enjoyed her company very much. We highly recommend her services.
Dear Nada I appreciate your great review. You are the beautiful Mother for the wonderful boys. I really envy you as I also have two boys. I want to believe that no matter our age, they will always need their mom...chuckle. Hope you will keep exploring the world with your nice husband and the boys. Wish you and your family good health and happiness for ever. Thank you. Best, Mayumi
My husband and I enjoyed a great day in Hiroshima with Mayumi! She was very efficient in navigating public transportation. She helped us book trains to and from Kyoto, and showed us around all of the JR transport around Hiroshima. We loved our morning at Miyajima on the island, we had so much fun seeing the shrines, temples, and shops. Mayumi then took us to a local restaurant to try Okonomi-Yaki, which is a dish traditional to Hiroshima, which happened to be our favorite meal in all of Japan! Mayumi was also very knowledgeable about the peace park, museum, and history of Hiroshima. We definitely recommend spending a day with Mayumi!
Dear Ann, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave me such a great review. It was so nice meeting you two. How was the Tokyo Disney Land? I bet you had a super happy day over there, LOL. You look like a match in heaven! Happily ever after...... Mayumi
