What to Expect

After 30 min. train ride from Hiroshima, you arrive at this tiny town, SAIJO. Just follow chimneys and you find SAKE here. In this small town, you will encounter the world famous and time-honored sake breweries. Enjoy waking around and drop in at some of sake breweries to have a taste. Good rice and quality water are indispensable for making good sake, though. This town has both of them. Furthermore, to make efforts to keep the source of water clean, the SAIJO sake brewers association donates one yen for every bottle of sake sold. Let's explore the splendid nature and sake culture.

“ A guide for Hiroshima is a must ”

I wouldn’t hesitate to use a guide for Hiroshima - my kids got way more out of hearing the stories from a local. Mayumi was really flexible- we changed our timings last minute and she worked around us no problem!


Dear Karen, Thank you very much for leaving a review. How was a paddle walk? I bet the girls had a great fun. Please have more fun with them. All the best, Mayumi

“ Great tour with a great guide ”

We had an excellent half-day tour with Mayumi. She was very knowledgeable about Hiroshima and events relating to the atomic bomb. She gave us clear and interesitng information and was happy - and able! - to answer our many questions. She had been thoughtful about our route and was happy to be adaptable when there was a reason to make a modest change. Her English was excellent and her explanations were always clear. Thank you, Mayumi!


Dear Jeremy, I really appreciate your great review, which just made my day. I was fortunate to know the couple like yours and thankful for you who generously shared insightful information with me. I searched and found the book you kindly mentioned, regarding an unknown English man who fell in love with cherry blossoms and dedicated much of his life to their cultivation and preservation in Britain and Japan. I am very much looking forward to reading it. Please enjoy loads of joy and happiness through the journey in Japan with Julia. God bless you all. Best, Mayumi.
