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.

“ Beautiful and thoughtful time visiting Hiroshima. ”

Mayumi was excellent and very knowledgeable. We spent the day going around Hiroshima city and Miyajima. Hiroshima can be a sensitive place to visit, especially for someone from the US. Mayumi handled it wonderfully. She knew when to talk, and when to give me a chance to reflect while at the memorial. She answered all of the questions I had, and eagerly shared her knowledge. Miyajima was beautiful. Again, Mayumi was very knowledgeable about the area and gladly shared information. The walk and ropeway to the top station of the mountain is well worth it.

“ Enlightening and soul stirring ”

It was an excellent day with Mayumi bending an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and organized. She was flexible enough to adjust timings of the tour based upon the guests needs. She had done good research and ground work on what we wanted to do and eat and still be flexible and able to cover all the attractions. Special thanks for brinigjng in the umbrellas for the rainy day. We indeed loved the day and time spent in Hiroshima which was really enlightening and soul stirring.

“ Wonderful tour of Miyajima and Hiroshima ”

Mayumi was a wonderful guide! We were delighted to have an insider's view of both Miyajima Island and Hiroshima Peace Park. Highlights: incredible English fluency, warm, flexible, and deep understanding of the history and importance of these sites. To have my son and nephew learn about Hiroshima through the overwhelming stories and the living history, is to change their world view forever. Thank you Mayumi!

“ Miyajima Day Trip ”

Mayumi was prompt in meeting us and was well organized for our day at Miyajima. She ably led us through the public transit, train and boat we needed to arrive at the island . Once there she highlighted the O torii Gates, the pagodas, the shrines and temples. To top it all off she climbed to the summit of Mt. Misen with us. She was pleasant and personable throughout; the perfect guide for our last day in Japan! Thank you Mayumi!😃

“ 2 days in Hiroshima ”

We met MAYUMI who took us to all the interesting places and was helpful and extremely knowledgeable. We could not have done it without her in the time we had and having MAYUMI as a guide made our stay memorable. I only wish we had ever more time to spend together. I can highly recommend here to any visitor to hiroshima.
