With your local insider as a GPS, guidebook, and Google, you’ll discover more than just Hiroshima’s tragic World War II history. Experience its rich ancient culture and the modern Hiroshima of today: a vibrant hub of friendly locals, pristine parks, tightly-packed sake bars, and plenty of okonomiyaki (savory pancake) restaurants serving Hiroshima’s “soul food”. You could visit the striking symbol of the city, the Atomic Bomb Dome, stroll down the soft sand of the Bayside Beach, or explore ancient shrines and temples – from hydrangea-lined Jinguji-temple to Itsukushima. On Miyajima Island, see nature at its most impressive: lush forests, turquoise ocean, and the iconic “floating” torii gate: a shrine that’s partially submerged at high tide.
Take the bullet train northwest of Fukuoka to Hiroshima, a city on Honshu Island, where you’ll discover this peaceful city’s strength, beauty and devastating history for yourself. Your host will lead you through the Naka Ward, home to the bustling city center and famous historical memorials. At the north end of an island formed by two of Hiroshima’s rivers – Ota and Motoyasu – you’ll see the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, museum, and the Atomic Bomb Dome, before discovering modern Hiroshima through a local’s eyes on a serene stroll through 400-year-old Shukkei-en garden, or in downtown entertainment district, neon-lit Nagerekawa. And a taste of ancient Japan is just a 10-mile ferry ride away on the breathtakingly beautiful Miyajima island.
