Hiroshima and Miyajima Day Tour from Osaka
$356.31
Overview
See the historical highlights of Hiroshima on a comprehensive full-day tour from Osaka, led by a knowledgeable guide. Ride on the super-speed bullet train to Hiroshima then board a boat to the idyllic Miyajima Island, home to the splendid Itsukishima Shrine. Return to Hiroshima to feel emotionally stirred by the magnificent Hirsohima Peace Memorial Park and Museum, in which intriguing exhibitions speak eloquently of the atomic bomb dropped on the city in 1945. Fully immerse yourself in Japan’s fascinating culture during this enriching excursion. Enjoy convenient transportation from a central Osaka location on this tour.
What to Expect
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 a 2-hour ride to Hiroshima. 

On arrival, continue the journey to Miyajimaguchi by coach or train then board a boat travelling 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 for 45-minutes 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.

TOUR OPERATOR LEFT BEFORE MEETING TIME - NOT A COOPERATIVE COMPANY TO DEAL WITH

The tour guide left before the designated meeting time and did not leave any contact information. The tour company claims they left on time, you can decide if 400USD if worth trusting them or me. On that note, this was my second sunrise tour in...More
