What to Expect

I would like to guide you from the Honshu Main Island to Shikoku Island through various islands and bridges. This route is called “Shimanami Highway” with a fantastic cycling road (one of the most beautiful cycling roads in the world. You’ll feel like you're flying above the sea while you're cycling on the bridges.)
I can pick you up at Hiroshima Airport or any JR Shinkansen station in Hiroshima prefecture. I can also introduce you to various types of accommodation from high-class hotels to something more in the range of a backpacker, and rental cycle shops and so on.

See the following videos to understand my tour guiding area. Thank you.

“ Day in Hiroshima and Miajima ”

Spent a day with Yuji as our guide visiting Hiroshima and Miajima. Yuji met us at Hiroshima station, and for the next 5 hours, he was a wonderful guide to the area. He was knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited. He organized the tour so that in our limited time, we were able to see everything on our list. We first drove to the ferry for Miajima, Yugi brought us to the Ferry operated by JR, so our JR passes allowed free passage. Once on the island, he knew all the sights to see and all of the best photo locations. He was also an excellent guide back in the city of Hiroshima. Taking us to all of the important sites including the museum, peace memorial park, a-bomb dome, etc as well as a unique experience that many visitors are not afforded. Great personality as well. Yuji is highly recommended.

Yuji:
Thank you for your nice review for me. I should apologize that I made you haste several times because of tight schedule I planed. But I'm really glad to hear you could enjoy Hiroshima tour with me. If we had enough time, I could show you more hidden spots in Hiroshima. Hoping your visit Hiroshima again. I'm the guide waiting for your family. (^o^)/

“ Enjoyable and remarkable ”

Everything worked perfectly. Yuji struggled to make our visit to Hiroshima and Miyajima unforgettable. We were very short on time, but he was able to show us all top points of interest. We want to thank him to be so nice and professional

Yuji:
Thank very much for your nice review instead of some mistakes I made. I also appreciate your generosity and tolerance. I understand all of you are well experienced travelers and had hired many guides, that why I'm so happy to have a wonderful comment all the better for it. Again, thank you, thank you so much. (^o^)/

“ A perfect tour of Hiroshima ! ”

We are a family of four with children 12 and 14, Yuji was perfect for us. He collected us in his van from the station and took us to the key places we wanted to visit. It was a lovely day of learning in a low key way that suited us. Thank Yuki for a memorable day in Hiroshima. Regards Maria, Mark, Georgia and Johnnnie.

Yuji:
Thank you for your wonderful review for me. I really enjoyed our tour with you all. Especially the A-bomb survivor testimony and the miracle basement which never changed from the bombing. These are highlights of my PeacePark exploration. If you have the next tome to Horoshima, I'll take you the Buddhist reincarnation pilgrimage tour on the island of Miyajima. Again, much appreciate your review.

Yuji:
Hi, Meath It was a great day with you and I learned a lot about your country. Saudi Arabia is abound of crude oil, on the contrary Japan has supper technology for advanced engineering. Someday, you will be able to be the bridge between the two countries. Hope study hard and your success in the future. (^o^)/
