Description

Spend a day exploring Hiroshima. Take a ferry from the city to visit Itsukushima Island, commonly known as Miyajima, to see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Itsukushima Shrine. Transfer back to the city for views of historical icons like the Hiroshima Memorial Park and Hiroshima Castle.

After convenient hotel pick-up, board a ferry to Miyajima. Be amazed by the seemingly floating Itsukushima Shrine, which was built on pier-like structures. Take in the views of the magnificent Torii, the gate leading into the shrine. Explore and then head out to the streets of Miyajima, where you have free time to find a local lunch.

Transfer back to Hiroshima city after lunch and make your way to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, which was built at the site of the tragic bombing. View the ruins of the former Industrial Promotion Hall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site now known as the A-Bomb Dome.

Next, visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, which gives a history of Hiroshima up until the bombing, as well as of the lives of citizens during and after the tragedy. See displays of personal belongings and photos left by victims to convey the emotional turbulence during the catastrophic event. Wrap up your tour at the Hiroshima Castle, deemed a national treasure in 1931. See its 5 levels surrounded by a moat before the transfer back to your hotel.

The tour guide Yuko was an excellent guide and gracious, the driver Inaba San was a very knowledgeable person. The tour was tailored to my time and needs. Miyazima tour simply excellent.It was surprising to us that many of the rituals over there resembled to those back home in Nepal.The tour to A dome and museum were emotional ones for as we come from the birth land of Buddha. Thank you everyone for making our trip logical and memorable.

Wonderful trip with private car and guide. Obara-San was wonderful. He picked up in our lobby 10 mins before the scheduled time. Took us to the car which was very neat and clean. He then gave us a printed laminated itinerary for the day and tour guides for Miyajima and Hiroshima. The drive to Miyajima was beautiful and on the way Obara-San pointed out various places of tourist interest. Miyajima was thoroughly enjoyable. The ferry ride, walking around the island, seeing shrines and temples and eating lunch was all very good. After lunch we headed to the peace museum which was a very somber but meaningful experience. Afterwards we drove to the ground zero site of Shima Hospital and then the A bomb dome. All in all a wonderful experience. It didn’t feel rushed and we covered everything of interest and the length was just right. Another couple hours would have been too tiring. Thanks to the tour company and Obara-San for this once in a lifetime experience!

Our driver Aratami-san was excellent and very personable. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the city and history of Hiroshima. It’s very moving the timeline of Hiroshima. Good to learn about the past to never forget in the future.
