Touch and Feel A-Bomb Legacies in a Full Day Tour


In this tour we will visit 3 popular sightseeing spots that you can't miss in Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park:
The Atomic Bomb Dome is a symbol of the world peace and hope of the total abolition of the nuclear weapons. It is located in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. We will visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, Hypocenter, some memorial monuments and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

Hiroshima Castle:
The castle was completely destroyed in the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima. It was rebuilt in 1958 and made into a historic museum of Hiroshima.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a lovely day with Michi, with a well planned itinerary. Michi went above and beyond her duties by helping us organize and purchase our Shinkansen travel to Tokyo the day after our tour. Our tour itself was excellent and matched the description on the site. Michi is a legacy speaker on the Hiroshima A bomb and we enjoyed the added time she proved for us on this topic. Quite a moving experience.
