Explore the tragic past of Hiroshima and its hope for the future during this memorable, half-day sightseeing excursion.

An exterior visit is made to the Atomic Bomb Dome, the skeletal remains of the former Industrial Promotion Hall. The dome serves as a visual reminder of the death and destruction of the atom bomb, and is the only blast survivor left in ruins.

Afterward, visit the Peace Memorial Park, National Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims(including watching a short film), and Peace Museum.

From the top of the Orizuru Tower, you enjoy the beautiful view of the Peace Memorial Park and the city of Hiroshima.

A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshimi provided an excellent tour during our visit to Hiroshima. She was very knowledgeable and happy to answer our many questions. The tour went beyond the literature and exhibitions you can visit at the site, and having a local provide such a tour really gave us a greater understanding of the subject. I would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Hiroshima.
