Return Details

3-chōme-1-1 Umeda, Kita Ward, Osaka, 530-0001, Japan
Depart from a central location in Osaka and climb aboard a comfortable vehicle for the transfer to Shin-Osaka station, where your futuristic bullet train awaits. Climb onboard and marvel at the vehicle’s incredible velocity during the ride to Hiroshima. 

On arrival, continue the journey to Miyajimaguchi by coach or train then board a boat traveling to the majestic Sacred Island, a landmass hailed as one of Japan’s most beautiful landscapes. Disembark and discover the natural and cultural treasures of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed island with your guide. See the shimmering Itsukushima Shrine then revitalize with a delicious lunch in a local eatery (own expense).

Reboard the boat and cruise back to Hiroshima to reflect on the heartbreaking history of the region. Take a moment of contemplation at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a historical site near to where the atomic bomb exploded. See exhibitions that articulate the carnal destruction the bomb caused and marvel at the city’s regenerative recovery. 

Finally, board a bus to the Atomic Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome), a skeletal structure that miraculously survived the 1945 attack. Return to the station for the exhilarating return journey on the bullet train, where the tour concludes.

Bring tissues

You spend a lot of time travelling. But the memorial park and museum were definitely worth going to (bring tissues). Miyajima would have been great, but unfortunately it was under construction and the tour company didn’t tell us in advance. I thought that was ethically quite wrong. But the guide was really nice. It has been under construction for a year and will continue until May. That is plenty of time to give tourists warning.

The island was very beautiful and the guide was able to give us a lot of information. There were plenty of chances for free time where we could explore on our own. The peace museum was interesting yet confronting.

Something everyone should see

Loved the tour. Well organized, our guide was from the Hiroshima area so we had the added benefit of a personal connection for what was expected to be a bit uncomfortable at the memorial. It was, and that’s what we hoped. Miyajima was great as was the shrine. A long day but totally worth it.

Hiroshima and Miyajima Day Tour

Awesome Tour that gave us the chance to see, hear, and get an insight on local perspective about the Atomic Bombing. It is a great way for the kids to learn History outside of the books and appreciate the value of peace and life. Our guide Ms. Tanaka is awesome, she went out of her way to let us enjoy our trip! Miyajima island was lovely. The maple cakes are to die for and the "Obama Sake" is excellent! Definitely 5 Stars for this Tour!!! Will probably do it again and maybe time it with the cherry blossoms :-)

Such a thoughtful and and sombre place to remember the atrocity of weapons. Also a great place to see the resilience of mankind moving forward and bringing a place of such horror back to life. Amy our tour guide was amazing with her information and care of our group. The Island was spectacular and provided a beautiful backdrop to the Shinto buildings

The Miyajima trip was a lot of fun, seeing the floating temple and walking through the streets eating and shopping. Hiroshima is a very thought provoking location. The tour guides and bus drivers are first rate. Enough time is given at each location. Transportation is comofortable.

Stressful because of bad coordination

The trip turned out to be rather stressful because of bad coordination between Viator and their Japanese counterpart. We booked this tour and chose to be picked up at the Swissotel in Osaka. We then also booked our hotel stays here in the same hotel. But that morning came and it was almost 7:45, but still there was just us waiting for our tour mates. The hotel concierge was thankfuly helpful and called the tour operator on our behalf. Thats when we knew they were all in the Granvia Hotel. Problem was, nobody told us so. We were at the Swissotel waiting waiting waiting! Thanks to the Swissotel, we almost didnt make it for thr tour. We got there just fine but was so stressed and was ranting and the tour guide told us “...it is always Viator!” with a sigh. Meaning, if you book via Viator and chose to be picked up at the Swissotel, they couldn’t coordinate it well with their Japanese operator. Hiroshima and Miyajima are both great places. They got good Japanese tour guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Very good and interesting tour. The tour operator took really good care of us, getting us to the train in Osaka, then our guide in Hiroshima Sami met us and stayed with us until putting us back on the train to Osaka. We were met there again and they helped us get back to the original meeting point. Hiroshima was an emotional experience, and they present everything as a monument to peace. It's worth the visit.
