I'm so glad I decided to join the peace cycling tour while I visited Hiroshima. It deepened my understanding of the city and its past, specifically in regards to WWII and the atomic bomb. My guide, Shin-san, was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. We ended up on a 1:1 tour but he made me feel comfortable from the get-go. We spoke mostly in Japanese (but he is also a self-taught English speaker), and the 3 hours flew by! The tour was a mix of historical facts that he shared while we toured around on e-bikes as well as family accounts of the a-bomb and its aftermath. It was powerful to hear how he has been able to alchemize the generational experiences of war into a message of peace and understanding. Also, the weather on the date of my tour wasn't great, so I requested an afternoon tour instead of a morning one, which they were able to accommodate. Thanks for the flexibility and responsiveness, Sokoiko!

What an experience. Shin was extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to about various subjects on Hiroshima and the atomic bomb explosion. He gave some excellent stories from his own family’s experience that really gave the tour and history some depth. I’d highly recommend taking this tour if in Hiroshima!

I just got back from my trip to Hiroshima and wanted to say just how much I enjoyed the cycling tour! My guide, Shin was very personable and funny. There were two trainees on the tour as well. They were both very hospitable and attentive to my needs. Shin brought me around to all the sites, shared factual information about the atomic bombing, recounted first hand accounts from his family (atomic bomb survivors), taught me about Shinto shrine customs, and left me with a final message about world peace. I learned a great deal during this tour. Now, I’m excited to share what I learned with others! Make sure you book this tour during your trip to Hiroshima, you won’t regret it!
