Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajima Island Tour from Hiroshima

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajima Island Tour

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.

Hiroko met us at the hotel. Her English was great. The tour was organized, gave us the highlights of Hiroshima. The visit to the Peace Park and seeing the dome was quite moving. We only had a day, so having a guide was very helpful.

Excellent tour - Nobu was really interesting and her personal connection with the bombing through her father made for a different take on what happened. Great day. Highly recommended.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajima Island Tour was absolutely wonderful! I had such a great time on this tour. We covered so much ground in only a day but it never felt rushed. Our guide, Sammy, as so full of knowledge, was so approachable and kind. She was nice enough to share personal stories of relative who experienced the bomb in Hiroshima to give us a true sense of the horror it caused. It really put it all in to perspective and it can’t have been easy for her to share so we greatly appreciated it. Visiting Hiroshima was so surreal as someone who has wanted to go since I was little. It certainly lived up to my expectations! We visited the museum, gave a paper crane to Sadako, and marvelled at the Dome. Miyajima was also beautiful. It was not an Island I knew a great deal about prior to the tour but I was so lovely. All the deer walking around were hilarious as they attempted to steal and eat our bits of paper. Overall it was such an inspiring and fulfilling day that I would certainly recommend to everyone!

A great days experience. Unfortunately rain spoilt the day to some degree.
The Miyajima Island visit was wonderful and should not be missed. The lunch on the Island was enjoyable. Peace Memorial was sobering and after visiting the museum you appreciated the devastation that the local people endured.
