A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful guide with excellent command of English met us at bullet train station upon our arrival from Osaka, where our ship docked. She took us to the atomic bomb museum and ground zero, giving some personal narrative along the way, as her parents' generation had experienced the explosion. I will never forget this, and I wish all the world could see what happened here. We also visited a beautiful garden and then had lunch in a tiny restaurant that we would never have found on our own.
