A 1-day bus tour of Hiroshima and Miyajima will take you through the haunting past and resilient present and future of the region. Discover the significant landmarks and picnic gems scattered across the prefectures. Your day will begin with a visit to the poignant Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a tribute to the victims of the devastating atomic bombing of 1945. Stand in awe of the A-Bomb Dome, a haunting memorial rising from the ruins of a once-damaged building that serves as an enduring symbol of hope and peace. Delicious Lunch and Miyajima Island Visit It's time to savor the flavors of Hiroshima! You'll dine on the delectable Hiroshima Okonomiyaki, a savory Japanese pancake bursting with the rich flavors of pork, cabbage, bean sprouts, and noodles. Next, venture on a ferry trip across the serene waters of Hiroshima Bay, bound for the mystical Miyajima Island. This island is home to the enchanting Itsukushima Shinto Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As you approach, the sight of the shrine's iconic red gate seemingly floating on the water is nothing short of magical. Marvel at the Toyokuni Shrine which is decorated with many artworks, prominently with horses, and see the beam that holds up the roof as this structure doesn't have a ceiling. Right next to the shrine is the eye-catching red pagoda, the Goju no to. This 5-storied Pagoda is the oldest pagoda of this type in Japan and one of the oldest surviving wooden towers in the world.

You can start your trip from either the Shin-Osaka or Kyoto train station, where you will embark on the Shinkansen bullet train. Once you arrive, the bus will drive around the 16th-century Hiroshima Castle. It was destroyed by the atomic bomb in 1945 but was later restored in 1958. The bus will next stop at the Atomic Bomb Dome in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. You can step out and examine the drastic scene left behind by the first atomic bomb ever dropped in the history of the world. The Atomic Bomb Dome, although severely damaged, is the only standing structure left behind from the nuclear attack. The next stop on this tour is the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Go through its collection, which includes myriads of photographs and items left behind by the nuclear attack victims. It’s time to stop by a local restaurant for lunch. You will be served a Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki, which is more like a crispy crepe packed with tantalizing flavors served with pork, noodles, bean sprouts, and cabbage. Experience the Riches of Miyajima Island The next part of the tour will take you to the ferry and proceed towards the Itsukushima Shrine, located a small 10-minute ferry ride away. Built in the 13th century, this Shinto shrine comprises multiple buildings that are connected by boardwalks. Visit its main hall, prayer hall, and noh theatre stage, among other buildings, and pay your respects while there. The dramatic-looking torii gate marks the entrance to the shrine and is equally popular among tourists. It is a sight to behold even from a distance on the ferry. The last part of the tour involves you exploring Miyajima Island on your own. The remarkable tour will draw to a close after you are taken back to your starting point where you can board the Shinkansen bullet train to Osaka or Kyoto.
