Full-day private tour in Hiroshima


Visiting two world Heritage sites in Hiroshima in a day.

Embrace the enchanting beauty of Miyajima during a half-day sightseeing excursion to this picturesque island.

Miyajima Island consists mostly of steep, wooded hills, and is ranked as one of the three most scenic spots in the country. Its famous landmark, the huge red Torii Gate, at high tide, rises up out of the water and guards the island's main attraction, the Itsukushima Shrine and Daishoin.

The Atomic Bomb Dome, the skeletal remains of the former Industrial Promotion Hall, 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. (option)

A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshimi was a wonderful tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, interesting, and courteous. Our day was well planned. We also enjoyed Yoshi's recommendation for a typical Japanese luncheon at a local restaurant. The "Okonomiyakis" - savory pancakes were absolutely delicious!! We thank her for an amazing full day tour and a memorable experience! We highly recommend Yoshimi if planning a trip to Hiroshima.
