A more favorable option, my tour is geared for the more independent-minded travelers. This option lets you customize your one day tour with a variety of activities. Your day in Hiroshima is a blank page, waiting you for writing your own tales.
If you want to extend your way to other prefectures, it may be also planned as you wish. First up, please contact me.
Guide fee, Hotel pick-up
Transportation fees (you and guide)
I would like to ask that you contact me first before booking.
Appreciate your understanding.
I will arrange the tour as you like. Central Hiroshima and Miyajima may be covered in one day. Takehara tour needs a whole day if you start from your Hotel in Hiroshima. So you cannot get everything at the same time. If you want to experience more, you had better extend your stay here in Hiroshima. It is worthwhile. I am sure my plan lives up to its promise of offering something memorable to everyone.
It depends on your plan or the transportation mode, though. Let me give you some idea.
*For HIROSHIMA/MIYAJIMA tour, it will cost about 2000 JPY
Break down = Central Hiroshima -via Hiroshima Sta.- Miyajima Sta. < 220JPY by tram/ 420 JPY by JR for 30 min. ride>,
Miyajima Sta. - Miyajima Is., <180 JPY by Boat>,
And the Admission fee to Miyajima Shrine <300JPY>...... One suggestion…if you have enough time, I really recommend a tram-ride from central Hiroshima to Miyajima Sta.. It takes time (about 50 min.) to get there. But it will cost you only 270 JPY. Additionally, from a window of the streetcar, you may enjoy the charming townscape of Hiroshima/nearby local towns and the serene Seto inland sea.
Pleasure boat also operates directly from central Hiroshima to Miyajima Island. (2200JPY. Round trip: 4000JPY)
It was a pleasure to spend the day with Mayumi. She looked after us very well and shared some wonderful insights into the history of Hiroshima. We do not often take guided tours, however the time spent with Mayumi has made us consider doing this more regularly.
Mayumi is excellent and I recommend everyone joining her for a tour. My mother and I are the crazy travelers that try to fit as much in as possible while we are visiting a country. As a result, we were hoping to fit Hiroshima and Miyajima all in one day, but it seemed it would probably be too much. Luckily we found Mayumi. She was able map out an efficient tour that allowed us to see everything on our list. It was extremely calculated. In addition, and more importantly, the details, insight, and perspective she provided during the tour really separated the experience from anything else my mother and I did in Japan. Worth every penny and I couldnt recommend here enough.
Mayumi has been helpful from the moment we had booked, the arrival with a sign and our names at the trainstation till we left. I would highly recommend her. We did Kure and Hiroshima, impressive. We left in silence. Thank you Mayumi, all the best!
Dear Grace, I really appreciate your great review and many beautiful photos. I love them. You are in Tokyo by now? Much peace and love to you and your lovely family, and everyone in the world. Give my best regards to Rene and Tijn. Mayumi
We are two Americans, a mother and a teenage daughter, visiting Hiroshima, which is an emotional situation to begin with. Mayumi is from Hiroshima and her knowledge of the city and the events of August 6th, 1945, were immense, invaluable and profound. We arrived from Kyoto at 1pm on the Shinkansen and had tickets to return 5 hours later, so we knew to hire a guide so we didn't make any missteps. Mayumi met us at the Shinkansen platform with my name on a card. She took us to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum first, where I cried at the devastating images and was emotional. Mayumi remained kind, respectful and professional, which is asking a lot of the human soul in these complex situations. She then took us to the Atomic Bomb Dome, Peace Memorial Park, Ground Zero, and an elementary school where messages were written on walls in chalk in the hopes of reaching a missing loved one. She also showed us the paper cranes that came in from all over the world to honor the dead children. It was amazing how much we did, saw, learned and felt in 4 hours. This was a quick, intense day, and we never would have seen or learned most of it without her expertise and knowledge about the events a d the area. I also felt, on a personal level, there was a level of hope for the future in an American woman and a Japanese woman who is the child of a survivor, talking openly and from the heart, while visiting the historic events together, in today's world. It was a healing experience in the city of peace. I cannot imagine seeing Hiroshima without her.
Dear Katherine, I am humbled and beyond honored by the many kind words of praise I have received. "Oppenheimer" has not yet been released in Japan. I have already placed an order of the book of Okinawa you mentioned. The book review also said that this book should be read by anyone serving in Okinawa. I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts and insights with us. It was a rewarding time for me to spend with a very conscious and moderated person like you. Again thank you so much. Regards, Mayumi
