Itsukushima Shrine is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Japan. Its vermilion-colored Torii gate, though a little faded now, is a well-known symbol of this World Heritage Site. Miyajima island, however, is not a special place only for this shrine. The island itself has a sacred atmosphere. In Mt. Misen, you'll find quiet and secluded places for the ascetic training of Buddhist priests in old days. In Daishyoin Temple, you'll see many unique Buddhist images and experience impenetrable darkness. And in Itsukushima Shrine, you'll be aware of Japanese traditional aesthetic values. On this tour, I'd like you to feel the heart and soul of the Japanese.
ferry fare to Miyajima Island: 180 JPY (one way) / round trip ticket for Miyajima ropeway:1800 JPY / Itsukushima Shrine's admission fee: 300 JPY

Azusa is a very nice person and guided us to all important historical places of Hiroshima sharing its history with deep knowledge but also adding information about today life of the city
Dear Paula-san, Thank you so much for the great review! I am sure you were surprised at how crowded the Peace Museum was. I appreciate your enthusiastically listening to my explanation even in hot and busy conditions. It was really a great pleasure to be with you both. Azusa
Azusa is a tremendous tour guide to Hiroshima and Miyajima Island. Azusa took us to Hiroshima’s Atomic Dome and Peace Memorial Park which is a must do. Miyajima Island followed with oysters, shopping and many food selections. Azusa is very knowledgeable with the WW2 events and bombing. I highly recommend Azusa. We spent 1 day in Hiroshima, and could have spent 2 days.
Dear Bruce-san, I really appreciate your kind review. Your family was very sweet, cheerful and full of curiosity to try anything. You enjoyed a lot of Miyajima's specialties, and I was worried about your stomach. My time with all of you was very enjoyable and flew by. Thank you for making me feel like part of the family. And thank you for the delicious chocolate. Wishing you all the best!
We spent a wonderful afternoon with Azusa-san in Hiroshima visiting the Peace Memorial Park. Azusa-san is very knowledgeable, experienced and good humoured. The Peace Memorial Garden is a must see in Japan, and Azusa-san made the visit all the more memorable.
Dear Adam-san, I really appreciate your kind review. That encourages me a lot. Unfortunately, the weather was not good, but I was very lucky to have a great time with all of you. You are a very lively and friendly family. When I looked at your smart and caring children, I felt the warmth and love you and your wife have for them. Besides, they are very tall and cool. I hope you make many wonderful family memories in Japan! Sincerely, Azusa
It was a Great Day! All four of us enjoyed it tremendously. Azusa is very knowledgeable, she shared a lot of interesting facts and had informed answers to our questions. It was an easy and fun day. Recommend highly. Thank you very much!
Dear Zinaida-san, Thank you so much for the great evaluation. You are wonderfully friendly and warm-hearted people. Above all, the toughest family I have ever met. After climbing Mt.Misen in humid weather, people are usually very exhausted and have no energy to enjoy anything. However, your family was amazingly still vigorous and actively enjoying the trip. It was a fabulous mountain hike for me. Thanks for a great time! May the magnificent scenery of the Seto Inland Sea give you lasting memories! Sincerely, Azusa
