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.
A very nice tour considering the sad topic. Tour guide was very informative of the area and kept us on a good time schedule. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Akiko, was wonderful and so knowledgeable about the history of Hiroshima. We did a day trip from Kyoto and took a bullet train in the morning to meet the tour at the Hotel Granvia, which is connected to the Hiroshima train station. We started the tour by taking a ferry to Miyajima, a gorgeous island off the coast of Hiroshima with a beautiful Shinto shrine/temple and wonderful scenery. There was a wedding taking place at the temple on the day of our visit and we were able to watch some of the ceremony, which was very moving. The island is populated by many tame deer, which was amazing to see. There were also many shops with beautiful local goods and local bakeries and eateries. The food was incredible, and Akiko educated us about some of the local cuisine. After Miyojima, we went to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and museum, which was incredibly sobering and sad. Akiko's family was living near Hiroshima at the time of the bombing so she gave us a very personal understanding of how the people of Hiroshima were impacted by the bombing. We had about 2 hours to explore the museum, but could've spent a whole day there. It was a great introduction though. The tour finished and we returned to the train station around 6:00 p.m. to catch a train back to Kyoto. There are many good informal restaurants at Hiroshima station and a nice shopping area in the basement of the train station. While this was a long day, it was well worth it. Wonderful tour.
Great tour! Very knowledgable guide
