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

Thanks Keiko for our fantastic tour of Hirishima yesterday. It made such a difference having a local take us to the important sites and explain the history from a Hiroshima perspective - you got to understand it all from a very human perspective. Keiko was warm, friendly and informative. We learnt so much more through this tour than we ever would have had we done the sights independently. And when you only have one or two days, we would highly recommend this to anyone. Thank you Keiko - you are just lovel
