Ronald W United Kingdom
Wonderful experience, amazing !!!!
Very good and interesting tour. The tour operator took really good care of us, getting us to the train in Osaka, then our guide in Hiroshima Sami met us and stayed with us until putting us back on the train to Osaka. We were met there again and they helped us get back to the original meeting point. Hiroshima was an emotional experience, and they present everything as a monument to peace. It's worth the visit.
Perfectly done!!. A lot of stories about Hiroshima and its history. Visiting Miyajima was exciting, however very crowded. Strongly recommend!!
What a great day our guide Mitsu was teriffic and very informative and Miyajima Island was beautiful, we even got to witness a Japanese wedding. Hiroshima was very thought provoking and sad but at the same time it showed Japans ability to reform and grow . All in all a great day
This tour was excellent and worth it! The vendor is JTB Sunrise and they do it first class. We were met at Hotel Granvia and taken by taxi to Shin Osaka station where the guide escorted us to the platform and made sure we were off to Hiroshima unescorted, once upon arrival another guide met us as we came off the platform, than taken to the bus. On the return was handled the same way. Our guide spoke excellent English and did a excellent job in providing great information on each area we went too. Its a long tour but worth it if you have a limited time in Japan.
This tour is a MUST. First, we met a greeter at the Swissotel Nankai Osaka Hotel Bell Desk which was about a 10 minutes walk from Osaka Monterey Grasmere appreciated that they name a specific area to meet BELL DESK. We were transferred via taxi to the Shin Osaka station to catch the Japan Rail to Hiroshima--smooth 200 mph ride. From there, we hopped onto a comfortable tour bus which took us to pass Hiroshima to Miyajima and Hiroshima. We had the privilege of having Mitsu of Sunrise Tours as our Tour Guide--what a humble, sweet, and soft spoken lady. She was audible and spoke English perfectly. A native to Hiroshima, we enjoyed her sharing personal experiences about the area along with the necessary tour guide script. We love her passion for Miyajima/Hiroshima. We jumped on a ferry to Miyajima Island. We pet deer hang onto your things--they eat paper LOL, took alot of pictures, and witnessed a wedding procession before being released for free time. Our group stopped to take a lot ... A LOT ... of pictures/toire breaks at the start of the walking tour which slowed down the tour however, Mitsu was gentle but firm to move us along. Note: The longer you stop to take pictures in the beginning, the shorter your free time to shop and eat. Tip: Don't rush allow your guide to move you along and take pictures later or be quicker about taking pictures. We had honor of having Mitsu join us for lunch she recommended okonomiyaki at one of the restaurants. We boarded the ferry back to our bus which took us to Hiroshima. The tour restarted at the Bomb Dome and Mitsu narrated all the way to the Museum. Not going to spoil the experience. You just have to DO IT!!! In the end, we boarded the bus to Hiroshima Station and rode the Bullet Train back to Shin Osaka Station. Surprisingly, our taxi took us to our hotel instead of taking us back to Swissotel. DOMO ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU!!
We really enjoyed this tour. Tour escorts were extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend
Great trip. Very friendly and helpful guide! Definitely recommend this tour!
This was a wonderful tour with a very informative and friendly guide Hiro.
We began this tour in Osaka. A guide escorted us from our hotel to Osaka station. The provided us with tickets and walked us to the platform before waving us off onto our train. Another tour guide was waiting for us as we disembarked at Osaka at the end of the tour and escorted us back to our hotel.
This tour was just fantastic. The transport from Osaka to Hiroshima was on the Nozomi bullet train and was an experience in itself! Once we arrived at Hiroshima we boarded a bus bound for Miyajima. A quick stop for photos at Hiroshima castle and we were on our way. We took the ferry to Miyajamir and our guide walked us through the shrine, pointing out the significance of various statues and parts of the shrine. We were lucky enough to witness a wedding being performed at the shrine on the day we were touring. Lunch and shopping were followed before we were back on the bus bound for peace park and the atomic bomb dome. A walking tour through both was both solemn and informative. Atfter this, we had time to explore the peace park museum which was full of information and relics related to the bombing. Finally, the bus took us back to the station and Hiro escorted us to the platform.
Such a wonderful tour! I'd highly recommend it!
