We started the morning by taking a bus, then a pleasant ferry ride across to Miyajima Island. The Itsukushima torii gate is worth the visit alone! In our 'free time', I took a leisurely walk to the Daisho-in temple - very serene and beautiful setting with great views over the towards the shrine below. We then headed to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Our guide was very knowledgeable and sensitive to the history of Hiroshima. You can't help but be affected by this part of the tour - what more can be said, apart from you hope that it never happens again!
Excellent tour with a great guide. Best way to see so much in a short period. Would highly recommend.
We missed our morning pickup but Sunshine Tours got us to the venue all the same and we had a fantastic day at Miyajima. It would have been a great place to stay overnight. Very serene and beautiful. The Horishima Peace Park was moving. Our guide for the day, Miwa, was informative and humorous. She even gave us all a origami crane she had made herself. Incredible hospitality!
This trip was THE best trip I have ever taken! The tour guide was outstanding! She really knew her stuff both about Hiroshima and Miyajima island. We could easily have stayed on Miyajima island a full day as there is so much to see and do. Even my kids (17 and 11) enjoyed seeing and hearing about the history and stories of Hiroshima and Miyajima island. This is definitely a must-see while in Japan!
This is an excellent tour, I completely enjoyed it.
Excellent - very informative and value for money
The weather was lousy.....But the tour was very good .Amy is a very special guide and what will happen when she retires? her knowledge of all the places we visited was amazing and we were lucky to share lunch with her and discuss more about Japan and it's people.
We would have liked more time at the Peace park but weather was not permitting .
Thank you .
We would certainly recommend this tour.
The tour was excellent and so was the tour guide. Lots to see on this tour. I would highly recommend this tour.
Very interesting tour and there was enough time given at both locations to see what I wanted to see.
This was a great tour. The guide, Amy, was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was plenty of time at Miyajima and at the Peace Memorial Museum, which has some really excellent displays Highly recommended!
Very good informative tour.
The tour and tour guide were the greatest! I'm planning to do this again next March with my wife. If everyone would visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park the world would be a much better place. It is a shame that only one American President has visited Hiroshima! Charlie from Pennsylvania USA

Great tour I learned a lot tour guide was very smart and answered all of our questions it was a great experience all who visit Japan should take this tour!!
The tour was excellent due primarily to an excellent interpreter/tour guide.
