Visit two UNESCO world cultural heritage sites in Hiroshima


Hiroshima is world famous for the atomic bombing but you can't miss Miyajima!
This full day walking tour covers two UNESCO world cultural heritage sites in Hiroshima.

Explore Miyajima shrine island, Japan's top 3 scenic location. 800 year-old Itsukushima shrine and its giant gate are very unique ones standing in the bay.
(Please note this giant Otorii gate will be under renovation from June 2019 and it will be covered. )

The other destination is the Atomic Bomb Dome and peace museum.
Hiroshima is the first city that suffered the atomic bombing. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima gives us a good chance to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.
