Hiroshima Port / Hiroshima station / your hotel in Hiroshima city
The name Itsukushima literally means 'island of worship' and from ancient times the island itself was worshipped as a god. The mystical Itsukushima Shrine built on the water was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1996. A place where people have long carried out ancient rites, Itsukushima Shrine has become world renowned, attracting visitors from all over Japan and the rest of the world.
Hiroshima Castle was built by Mōri Terumoto, one of the council of five elders appointed by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. In the Edo period, it was used by the Fukushima clan and the Asano clan. The castle tower was designated as a national treasure in 1931, but it was later destroyed by the bomb. The castle was restored in 1958 and as part of its 400th anniversary in 1989, the interior was fully refurbished and now acts as a museum detailing the history and culture of Japanese samurai families.

My family of five made a trip to Shirawakago with a taxi driver and his large van. The driver spoke limited English but was thoughtful and kind. He was a careful driver and communicated sights to see and times to meet clearly. I’m actually really glad we booked this trip.
Please use these guides, helpful, respond well to adjusting the itinerary, and the cars are very comfortable and clean

First, the arrangements online for the custom tour were easy to make, with good communication. Next, on the day of the tour, Mr, Yasuda was an excellent driver and a great help to us. He showed up at our hotel early and was waiting for us. He had the itinerary we had set and went over it with us. Asked if we were comfortable with the temperature in the car, etc. Beautiful, clean car, and he was well-dressed and professional. My companion is elderly and uses a cane--Yasuda was kind, patient and eager to help. He was waiting in the car when we finished each place. Gone are the days when we were able to travel using subway, buses and long walks. We will do this again next trip to Kyoto.
