<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).
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.

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.
