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.

“ Excellent Hiroshima & Miyajima Guide ”

Mayumi was an excellent guide for my family and I in Hiroshima. She was honest about what we could do in the time allotted and was very insightful throughout the tour. She was thoughtful when it came to my elderly parents by making sure they could find seats on trains and the ferry. She provided both historical knowledge but also answered all of my questions regarding daily life in today’s Japanese culture.


Dear Brian. I very much appreciate your review. I am so grateful for your kindness. I believe your parents had a lovely time with fantastic sons here in Japan. It is my pleasure if I could be of even a little help for your big family travel. Please give my best regards to your wonderful family members. With gratitude, Mayumi

“ Great Day! ”

Mayumi was a great guide. She was knowledgeable and flexible with our plans. She was well prepared with hand outs, maps and pictures. She made our day in Hiroshima very enjoyable while giving us an insight to the city. Thank you Mayumi! Sincerely, Maylin Miro


Dear Maylin. I very much appreciate your thoughtful comment. Hope tons of the pictures you took in Japan and Hiroshima will enable you students to understand actual Japan and Japanese people. Thank you very much. Wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! Best, Mayumi

“ Went the extra mile ”

Mayumi was a Hiroshima “expert” based on personal experience and study. She provided insights and details we never could have picked up on our own. She was very warm and friendly and gave us additional information about other trips, bus schedules and whatever we asked.


Dear Sheila, I appreciate your kind message. I bet you enjoyed Miyajima very much on the following day. The weather was perfect, wasn't it? Please continue an awesome trip throughout Japan! All the Best, Mayumi

“ Wonderful Private Half Day Tour of Hiroshima with Mayumi ”

We recently went on a Windstar cruise in Japan and had a short stop in Hiroshima. We pre-booked a half day tour with local expert, Mayumi. We found Mayumi from a list of available private tour guides from the TripleLights.com website. From the planning stages, she communicated thoroughly with our itinerary and answered any and all questions very promptly. We had only half a day at port and so we wanted to see the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park. She met us at the port and from there, she navigated our way throughout the day by means of subway and bus. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is very well laid out and very moving. Mayumi highlighted the important aspects of the museum in areas where the crowd of people hovered and disguised some of the displays. Mayumi's Engli... read more


Dear Jamie, I can not thank you enough for this generous message. Even personally you gave me an email via TripleLights, saying you were sorry for the delay to write a review because of the inaccessibility of wifi over the tour.... What a considerate person you are!I I very much appreciate your compassion for other people. We had only four hours and I really wanted to show the things over here as much as possible. I still feel very sorry as I had made you walk that much. But you kept calm, trusted and followed me till the end of the tour. I was very much blessed, Jamie. Wish all the best for you and your husband. Sincerely yours, Mayumi

“ Wonderful Cultural Tour ”

Thank you Mayumi for such an an amazing tour, the Peace Park & Museum was a very emotional experience & will stay with me forever... thankyou. We loved the ferry trip & the whistle stop tour of the World Heritage sight Miyajima. Our tour far exceeded our expectations your knowledge of your history & culture. A very big thank you & hope to return.


Dear Jane Oh, thank you very much for your swift and lovely review. Such a wonderful day I spent with you two, who have full of sense of wit and humor. Really fun to be with... Hope I will be able to see you again someday and next time I will definitely take you to the top of Mt. Misen in the Miyajima island (chuckle). Please continue your wonderful cruise to China and have lots of fun over there as well. Bon Voyage! Mayumi
