Key Information

Description

Following a pick-up at your hotel or Hiroshima Station, you will take a JR local train to Miyajima-guchi and change to a ferry boat. Miyajima is one of the three most beautiful places in Japan. You will walk around the island to see the Great Torii Gate, Itsukushima Shrine, and Taishoin Temple. We will have lunch on the island. After Miyajima, you will take a tram to visit the Peace Memorial Park. Hiroshima is well known as the city where the first atomic bomb was dropped. You will walk around the park to see some monuments such as the Children's Peace Monument, Peace Bell, and Flame of Peace. Then you will visit the museum to learn about what happened on August 6, 1945. As this is a private tour, I will be flexible depending on your preferences.
