Your hotel in Hiroshima, Hiroshima station or an agreed-upon location in downtown Hiroshima
Miyajima Island, one of the three most scenic sites in Japan, is well known for the Great Torii Gate and shrine buildings "floating" in the sea. Meet tame deer and explore narrow alleys. You will discover the island's unique history and taste local delicacies: large grilled oysters, freshly baked maple cakes, Hiroshima lemon flavour gelato and more!
The Atomic Bomb Dome is the only building which remains as it was after the nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. While visiting the park and the museum, you will learn how the citizens picked themselves up from the ruins and rebuilt today's peaceful "City of Water".
Must-try during your stay in Hiroshima is Okonomiyaki savoury pancake. You can have one for lunch, or I can recommend some restaurants in the area you are staying.

It was a pleasure meeting Aiko and spending our time with her in Hiroshima. We visited the A-bomb Dome, Peace Memorial Museum and Hall of Remembrance, Orizuru Tower and traditional okonomiyaki lunch. Aiko presentation and knowledge was exceptional. Additionally she spent time with each person in our group making sure we all were engaged and enjoyed our time. Wish we had more time to spend with Aiko exploring more of Hiroshima.
Thank you for your kind comment! I am glad that you enjoyed your day in Hiroshima. It was very nice to meet you all and I had a great time too. I hope to see you again in Hiroshima.
Excellent day spent with Aiko. We did the Miyami Island Shrine, a fast ferry trip back to Hiroshima up a water way direct to peace park, a tour of the a-bomb area and a visit to the peace park museum. As well Aiko took us to a local restaurant to sample typical Hiroshima style food and them safely back to our cruise ship. Excellent day with great guide to see a beautiful spot in Japan.
Thank you, Collin. I am glad you liked the tour. It was great to meet you and show you around my city. Please give my regards to your wife and your friends.
