We went to the Atomic Dome which is the last surviving building after WWII. Then we went to the Peace Memorial. The Peace Memorial is an experience unlike any other. At first it seems very clinical and straight forward with exhibits talking about the people who discovered atomic energy, the people who weaponised it, the people who ordered it to be used, how they selected Hiroshima, and even where they were aiming for. Then it tells the personal stories of people in Hiroshima. The victims, the children, families... it is a unique experience and should not be missed.
Then we went to Miyajima island. It is a beautiful island with a beautiful shrine, the Tori Gate, deer, and lots of sponge cakes :
This tour was very informative.
Our guide Sammy, was very knowledgeable and offered authentic perspective of events.
We enjoyed this tour very much. It was raining on the day which added to the feel of the afternoon. Fumiko did such a good job
in passing on heaps of information to us. We would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the Hiroshima bombing.
Thank you so much for this day.
Our guide Mariko was wonderful. Even if you have more than a day in Hiroshima, this day trip is totally worth doing. She is very knowledgeable, and her explanations deserve a 10 out of 10!
Great trip worth the time and effort
A lovely day with such an informative guide. We learnt so much of the history and saw how proud the people of Hiroshima are of the rebuild and the monuments. Mijajima was such a beautiful experience and such a stunning location.

Very somber but powerful experience. This was a long guided trip, and well worth the memories.
We were very impressed. The tour was well organised, the visit to the Peace Memorial very moving and meaningful. Our guide, Akiko, simply had all the right qualities for a guide: Knowledge, ability to explain and cause empathy, sense of humour. Bravo.
Our tour guide Fumiko gave us a lot of detailed information. I was surprised at how much I actually learned from this tour. I thought I had known a lot already. The museum was very moving. Parts of the museum were under repairs and the traffic was terrible coming from the island but she filled that time with a lot of history and a perspective on how the japanese people felt during and after the war. I highly recommend this tour.
