  • Full Day

Take a full day guided tour to the Historic Hiroshima. Depart from Osaka by Bullet Train. Upon arrival, take a short ferry ride to Miyajima. Visit the Itsukushima Shine, a World Heritage site. Established in the 6th century, this shrine is one of Japan’s finest, and is famous for its beautiful Shinden-zukuri style structure. The contrast of the green of Mount Misen behind the lacquered shrine pavilion and the blue of the Seto Sea is beautiful and evocative of the underwater palace of Ryugujo. Afterward, take another short ferry ride to Miyajimaguchi and visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park & Museum. This large-scale park was established in 1949 after the Pacific War ended, and is visited by countless visitors as a symbol of peace. The museum within the park is an Important Cultural Property of Japan, and was built to remind future generations of the terror wrought by atomic bombs. See the Atomic Bomb Dome, a symbol of the disastrous atomic bombing during WWII, the first atomic bombs used in human history, and has been preserved as it was to promote peace and elimination of atomic weapons around the world. Return back to Osaka by Bullet Train afterward.
