History in Hiroshima

Hiroshima, a place everyone has heard of, which will always be known as the target for the first atomic bomb attack in 1945.  This town has used its tragic history to promote a world message of peace.

  • Museums & Memorials
  • A town synonymous with tragedy and now peace.

Walk through the Peace Memorial Park, surrounded by water, with memorials and monuments emulating peace.  Look across the river to the Atomic Bomb Dome, an eerie reminder of the devastation Hiroshima faced.  The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum harbours items discovered in the aftermath of the event, heart breaking to witness, but a must do.

Begin your holiday to Japan today.

Hiroshima Escorted Tour

Hiroshima Holiday

Look at the surrounding sites by hopping onto the Sightseeing Bus, which has two different routes.  A great way to see the surrounding neighbourhood, including the moated Carp Castle (Hiroshima-jo), which was totally destroyed by the atomic bomb, but rebuilt in 1958. Feeling hungry? Enjoy a delicious savoury pancake (okonomiyaki) for starters and finish it off with a cake/waffle shaped like a maple leaf (momiji-manju).

Japan Holiday

Japan Escorted Tour

Majestic Miyajima

Catch a ferry to the UNESCO island of Miyajima, to witness the famous shrine gate (torii) that appears to float on the sea at high tide.  As you walk along the shore, witness the deer happily sitting under the trees enjoying the shade. The deer will get close to you and they have a penchant for maps (as I discovered!) Arrive at a street lined with shops where you will have a choice of lots of different restaurants and even local beer at Miyajima brewery.  Discover lots of shrines on the island, climb the steps up to Daisho-in, which contains many Buddist images. Keep climbing up from here, or catch the Misen Ropeway for stunning vistas. 

Visit Hiroshima on your holiday to Japan. Join an escorted tour or follow a planned itinerary.   Start your Japan holiday today.
