Visit a-bomb dome & the Fantastic Shirne Island

Make the most out of your day in Hiroshima and explore the main highlights with this 8 hours private shore excursion. I will meet you at the Cruise Terminal and after a short taxi ride we will be in downtown to start our tour.

Visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (広島平和記念公園 Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen?), the park is dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack, and to the memories of the bomb's direct and indirect victims (of whom there may have been as many as 140, 000).

Continue to Itsukushima Shrine (Japanese: 厳島神社 Itsukushima-jinja), a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima), best known for its "floating" torii gate.

After the tour, I will drop you off back to the Cruise Terminal.
