Tour guide picked us up at Hilton hotel Osaka and delivered us to bullet train carriage. Another tour guide picked us up from bullet train carriage in Hiroshima and spent the day with us taking in highlights of Miyajima island and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Atomic Bomb Dome and Itsukushima Shrine. Both tour guides were excellent. 10 out of 10. Tour lasted 13 hours Worth doing.

This was a very emotional visit. We took the bullet train from Yokohama and did the hop on hop off bus. An easy city to navigate and well worth the time. The Peace Garden was by far a favorite, but do not skip the museum. So many stories which we have never heard here in the USA.

We booked our tour with Kumiko Tanimoto at Hiroshima Optional Tours, through Oceania Cruises. We spent a wonderful day with Kumiko touring Miyajima Island and the Hiroshima Memorial Park and Museum. All of these sights are a must if you go to Hiroshima and Kumiko did an excellent job, even in the rain! Her English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable. We will certainly use her again if we go back to Hiroshima.

My review is long overdue. My traveling companion and I toured Miyajima Island with Koto back in June 2016. We really enjoyed our time exploring the island's town and many shrines and temples. Communication prior to the tour was excellent, with clear meet-up instructions. I would definitely recommend this tour company.

My wife (who is Japanese) arranged for Tetsuhiro Murakami to be our tour guide of the Hiroshima Peace Park & Museum. And (aside from not needing to constantly be translating for me,) I believe that she also appreciated "Teddy's" insights throughout the day. I thought that his insights were well worth the cost--AND he's a really nice guy whose company I enjoyed. I highly recommend hiring a guide for this tour if you want to get the most out of it.
