Return Details

HIROSHIMA STATION, 1-2番37号 Matsubarachō, Minami-ku, Hiroshima, 732-0822, Japan
Depart from a centrally located Hiroshima hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and relax during the scenic journey to Miyajima, which literally translates as ‘shrine island’. Board a ferry and sail towards the natural haven of the island, stopping to see playful monkeys and wild deer surround the renowned Itsukushima Shrine. Spend a moment admiring the dynamic architecture of the temple and hear of its rich historical heritage from your guide.
Next, head to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park to explore a verdant expanse dedicated to promoting peace. Built to commemorate the destructive atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima in 1945, the park houses the Peace Memorial Museum and a selection of monuments that commemorate those lost in the explosion. Browse intriguing exhibitions and visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, a skeletal structure that partially survived the blast.
Spend a moment reflecting quietly at the Memorial Cenotaph for Atomic Bomb Victims and read the seemingly interminable list of those lost in the brutal explosion. Visit more monuments, including the Cenotaph fro Korean Victims, and then return to a central Hiroshima location at the end of your moving tour.

Amazing place and tour. A must, place to visit in your bucket list. It will provide you with a new meaning to the term "start from scratch". Miyajima island is a beautiful and busy place. Plenty of places to eat, or drink (Literally, there's a bar that was packed in the afternoon!) There's even a Starbucks! Amy did a great job as a Tour Guide. Don't miss it.

Hiroshima Peace memorial park and Miyajima Island Tour

Should have given Miyajima Island a pass. It is a tourist trap and the Tori gate was under repair and could not be seen. Food catered to tourists and was bad all around. Hiroshima Peace memorial is a great memorial and very moving to see the effects of nuclear weapons. Tour guide was not good. Just kept talking about herself which was very annoying. I did not sign up for the tour to hear about her personal issues. She did not say much about the Hiroshima bombing.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajimacho Island tour

The tour of Hiroshima was very moving and the Guide Amy did a good job. She was personally involved as she told us her Mother was pregnant with her at the time of the dropping of the atomic bomb and it was only by chance that her parents were out of town on that day that they survived. We also enjoyed the ferry ride to the Island and the shops on the Island. All in all a very enjoyable trip. Stephen and Leila Stone

This tour gets you around to two UNESCO world heritage sites with ample time to explore. 3 hours Miyajima and 3 hours Peace Park. Both sites are exceptional.

We did the tour of Miyajima Island and Hiroshima Peace Park with Sunrise Tours a few days ago. Miyajima island was absolutely beautiful and it was very quiet (which we were told was rare) so we were able to take it easy and enjoy ourselves. Hiroshima was powerful and very moving... But such an incredible experience. However, this was all made exponentially by our wonderful guide - Nobu-san. She gave us so much detail and background about everything we were seeing and she had personal connections to the tragedy back in 1945. She was an amazing guide but also a wonderful person. I would highly recommend this and if you go - fingers crossed that Nobu-san is your guide!

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 was a great 101 tour with the lovely and picturesque island of Miyajima. This is no criticism of the tour but there were so many people on the island and it was almost impossible to really enjoy the sights and scenery without doing most of it on your own. Highly recommend wandering and looking and things and perhaps taking the boat to the Peace Park in town. We wanted to spend so much more time on Miyajima. Anyways, the tour at the Memorial Park was nice and enjoyed the serenity of the area in spite of the incredibly painful history of this location.
