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.

“ HIROSHIMA WITH FAMILY ”

Our tour of Hiroshima with Mayumi was fantastic. She managed to keep our two teen age boys engaged the entire day. The pick up at the train station was flawless.

MAYUMI:
It was my pleasure to be with you all. You are a nice family. You tried to talk to Japanese people, even school kids, whom you happened to meet up with during the tour in a very friendly and respectful manner, which I really admired... Hope you will keep having a wonderful family time with the boys. Kids grow very fast, don't they (chuckle).

“ 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.

MAYUMI:
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. .

Hi, Gaurav-san Thanks for your review. Your family enjoyed Hiroshima and took tons of photos. Your mother said that she has been very much proud of having a son like you. I definitely agree as a mother of two boys. Wish you and your family good health and happiness. Best, Mayumi
