Explore the Atomic Bomb Dome and enjoy a relaxing walk through a beautiful Japanese garden


The first city that suffered from the atomic bomb. This is the perfect place to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.

Visit the Atomic Bomb Dome and feel how furious the blast was.
With your tour guide's explanation, you will learn episodes or messages of each monument in the peace park, which otherwise you will just pass without knowing anything about them. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima will give us a good inspiration to make a better world.

Shukkei-en Japanese garden is a beautiful garden built by a Daimyo (or samurai) who ruled over Hiroshima in the 17th century. As the name of this garden shows, 'miniature scenery garden' in English, you can view different beautiful sceneries from different view points. Enjoy Japanese beauty in a relaxing walk.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a fantastic day today with Keiko. She was waiting for us with a taxi when we left our ship and showed us the Japanese Gardens, Hiroshima Castle, the Peace Park and Memorials and the Museum. Her English was perfect and her explanations of what we were seeing excellent. We had a local Hiroshima lunch at a great local place. Our day couldn't have been more perfect and we highly recommend using her guiding service if you are looking for a private full day tour where you see all the main sites.
