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.
