<1-DAY tour from Osaka>


Tour covers the UNESCO sites both Hiroshima and Miyajima island in a day.
You'll have a great opportunity to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere in the city and to love the beautiful nature in Miyajima.
Your guide lived in Hiroshima city for 8 years.

It takes about 90-100 minutes' Shinkansen ride from Shin-Osaka to Hiroshima one-way.

When you'll start the tour from Hiroshima city, it's a better idea, please confirm the tour #214064 "from Hiroshima to Hiroshima, Miyajima island tour". When you join this, you'll save time and visit one more place.

Tour price is per group, not per person. Tour price includes the guide's Shinkansen fare because she lives in Osaka.
"Estimated Local Cash Needed" is per person, not per group.
I can meet you at your hotel lobby (except for Airbnb).

-IMPORTANT-
When you have a Japan Rail pass, please let me know in advance because the pass limits the Shinkansen ride. Let's consult the Shinkansen schedule before meeting.

Itinerary

meet at your hotel in Osaka.
take a subway or train to Shin-Osaka station to take a bullet train to Hiroshima around 9am.

take a JR train and ferry to Miyajima island, around 1hour.
1. Miyajima island, Itsukushima Shrine (UNESCO), around 2 hours,
take a ferry from the island to A-bomb dome directly, around 45 min.
2. Peace Memorial Park (UNESCO), around 1 hour,
take a bus or tram to Hiroshima station, around 30 min.
including lunch stop.

visiting order of 1&2 might be changed depending on the tide schedule in the island. The tide changes high and low every 6 hours and I'd like to show the high tide because the big torii gate looks like floating in the sea.

take a bullet train after 5pm from Hiroshima to Shin-Osaka, and take a train or subway to your hotel.
You'll arrive at your hotel after 7pm.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hiroko took us to various places of interest in Hiroshima, including little visited places not known to many people. It is this kind of knowledge and familiarity with the areas we visited that made this tour so rewarding and so worthwhile. I highly recommend asking for Hiroko when traveling to Hiroshima.
