What to Expect

Itsukushima Shrine (Japanese: 厳島神社 Itsukushima-jinja) is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima), best known for its "floating" torii gate.[1] It is located in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (広島平和記念公園 Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen?) is a memorial park in the center of Hiroshima City. It's dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack, and to the memories of the bomb's direct and indirect victims (of whom there may have been as many as 140,000).

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we get to Miyajima from the Park.

I recommend the direct boat from Hiroshima Port to Miyajima. Although this is a little bit expensive but you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Inland Sea. There are also public transportation (tram, JR train, ferry).

You can use JR pass and Hiroden One day Pass. (very easy and reasonable way of looking around)I

Beautiful and Sombering

Yuji was a great guide. He took us to Miyajima and explained a lot about Buddhisi. We then went on to Hiroshima and the Peace Memorial Park which was very somber experience.

Outstanding guide - must book

Yuji was incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining. His passion and kindness shines through. He is a truly exceptional guide and made our visit to Hiroshima very memorable and fun. Yuji’s stories and observations were very humorous and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Would highly recommend Yuji.

Dear Shenaz Thank you for your five stars review to me. It was a great time with you to talk frankly about everything. Or cause I’m a guide but your smile made me relax and carried out this tour so nicely. A lot of coincidence, thanks to the Miyajima deities arrangement, we were able to experience miracles. Again I much appreciate your generosity and kindness.

Yuji is the BEST!

We truly enjoyed having Yuji as our guide in Hiroshima. He was very professional, efficient, knowledgeable and happy to be with. We were taken care of the whole time, and were able to maximize our limited time to appreciate the city, Miyajima and its local culture especially after the tragic event. Yuji is highly recommended! Salamat Yuji! (Thank you)

Dear Eduardo Thank you for your nice review to me. It was a find day and we really had a good time. We talked a lot about Japan because of your deep knowledge of Japan and Japanese culture. Again, I much appreciate your understanding to carry out this tour smoothly. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again.
