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.

“ It was a pleasure to see Hiroshima with Mayumi ”

From my first contact with heri till she said good-bye to us at Hiroshima Station, Mayumi was perfect in all respects. Her planning of our trip and communications with us were flawless. Her knowledge of the city is par excellence. She is proficient in English and therefore very easy to communicate with. I and my family were extremely thankful to her as she made our one day trip to Hiroshima memorable and worthwhile.

Thanks a million for your review, Anil-san. It was my pleasure to be with your family. You are lucky parents who have such smart and dutiful sons. You said you have already visited Japan more than 100 times on business, though. I hope you had a wonderful family time in HIroshima with Sakura, cherry blossoms. Please visit Japan in Fall next time to see autumn foliage with your family. It is just gorgeous! Wish you and your family good health and happiness. .

“ Wonderful Custom Hiroshima Tour ”

We communicated via email w/ prompt replies and detailed information & itinerary. She was at the port before our Oceania ship arrived and soon on our way to Miyajima by taxi then train. Mayumi showed us the highlights but if I wanted to detour, it wasn't an problem. We saw Miyajima and A-bomb Dome/Peace Park, plus some shopping and sushi lunch. Everything was paced properly and she was a pleasure to hang out with for the day. Highly recommended English speaking certified tour guide.

Thanks a million, JT. I am greatly honored with your words. It was my pleasure to be able to spend some time with you two. You are such a wonderful couple who shares the common interest…. travels. In addition, You are punctual, meticulous, thoughtful, and sometimes very humorous. It was a great day for me as well. I thank you very much again and wish you lots of happiness through traveling from now on. With gratitude, Mayumi
