  • Yoko Fujisaka
  • Hello! I’m Yoko Fujisaka. I like nature, art, history and cycling. Please come and join me to explore Hiroshima! I speak English and Spanish.

     

  • Sachi Sakamoto
  • Hi, travelers, I’m Sachi Sakamoto, a licensed tour guide. I hail from eastern Hiroshima Prefecture where there are lots of wonderful places to see. “Tomo-no-Ura” is a beautiful small historical port town where time has stood still for hundreds of years. And then there’s the “Shimanami cycling road,” the most picturesque cycling road in all of Japan. It spans right across the Seto Inland Sea and the panoramic view from the magnificent bridges and islands are simply breathtaking. Come and enjoy the calm blue sea, the gentle breeze and the exquisitely warm and friendly atmosphere of these truly unique destinations.

    This is the Tatara Grand Bridge and the sky a dragon soars. As I’ve written in former articles, you can get to hear the dragon for the first time in your life if you come to the bridge. Look up and see it to yourself.

  • Never heard how dragons make sound? Hold the two bars on the railing and hit them against each other. You’ll  get some curious resounding. That’s the dragon responding to your call. Cross the Grand Tatara Bridge. That’s where you can get to hear the dragon!
