DETAILED ITINERARY

Hiroshima offers an array of historical sites, stunning nature and a flavorful culinary scene. Touring this world heritage site allows visitors to witness how tragedy can turn into a source of strength and peace.

The Memorial Peace Park, Kosanji Temple, Itsukushima Shrine and the Atomic Bomb Dome are just a few locations you shouldn’t skip out on (and we have private package tours for all of them!).

We start our journey at your chosen location within Hiroshima city. After picking you up in one of our private vehicles, we will drive you through some truly spectacular

countryside views towards the three destinations of your choice.

Option 01: Hiroshima Castle (Recommended)

Hiroshima originally developed as a castle town, with the Hiroshima castle at the center of the city, rather than at the top of a hill. The castle’s main structure is five stories tall with a moat surrounding the grounds. The main quarter also houses a few shrines, ruins and a few reconstructed buildings. Although Hiroshima Castle was spared from demolishment during the Meiji Restoration, the castle was still destroyed along with the rest of the city by the 1945 atomic bomb. Visitors can enter into the castle and take an informative tour of the castle’s history and restoration efforts, as well enjoy a phenomenal panoramic view of the city from the top floor.

Option 02: Okonomiyaki Village (Recommended)

Hiroshima is a gastronomic city, with many dishes and foods only known to Hiroshima. One of which is the Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki (a form of Japanese pizza). After World War II, this area became home to many Okonomiyaki vendors who lined its streets, but now, you can find over 25 delectable Okonomiyaki restaurants in one building, each having their own unique spin on this delicious dish. Visit this destination for a truly exciting and flavorsome adventure.

Option 03: Peace Memorial Park (Peace Memorial Museum and Atomic Bomb Dome) (Recommended)

This scenic park was built in memory of the devastation wrought upon Hiroshima by the Atomic Bomb in 1945. This Peace Memorial Park serves as a reminder to this tragedy and a call to embrace global peace. Our tour also takes you through the Peace Memorial Museum, located nearby, which allows visitors to learn about the outcomes of that one tragic day in August 1945.

Option 04: Hiroshima Orizuru Tower

Just east of the Atomic Dome is the Hiroshima Orzuru Tower, named after the folder paper crane, which represents peace.
