Hiroshima / Miyajima Full-day Private Tour with Government Licensed Guide

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, 1-2 Nakajimacho, Naka-ku, Hiroshima 730-0811 Hiroshima Prefecture

Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park (平和記念公園, Heiwa Kinen Kōen) is one of the most prominent features of the city. Even visitors not looking for it will likely stumble upon the large park of over 120,000 square meters. Its trees, lawns, and walking paths are in stark contrast to the surrounding downtown area.

Before the bomb, the area of what is now the Peace Park was the political and commercial heart of the city. For this reason, it was chosen as the pilot's target. Four years to the day after the bomb was dropped, it was decided that the area would not be redeveloped but instead devoted to peace memorial facilities.

Admission Fee: ¥200

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Hiroshima Castle, 21-1 Moto-machi Nakaku, Hiroshima 730-0011 Hiroshima Prefecture

Hiroshima Castle (広島城, Hiroshimajō), also called the Carp Castle, is a good example of a castle built on a plain in the center of a city as opposed to hilltop and mountaintop castles. Its main keep is five stories tall, and its grounds are surrounded by a moat. Also within the castle's precincts are a shrine, some ruins and a few reconstructed buildings of the Ninomaru (second circle of defense).

Hiroshima developed as a castle town, whereby the castle was both the physical and economical center of the city. Built in 1589 by the powerful feudal lord Mori Terumoto, Hiroshima Castle was an important seat of power in Western Japan. While it was spared the demolishment that many other castles met during the Meiji Restoration, like the rest of the city, Hiroshima Castle was destroyed by the atomic bomb in 1945.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Shukkei-en Garden, 2-11 Kaminobori-cho, Hiroshima Hiroshima Prefecture

Shukkeien is a Japanese garden in Hiroshima, designated as one of Japan’s Top 100 Historical Parks and a National Scenic Spot. This article introduces the highlights of the garden, access information, and other tips to enjoy it.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Itsukushima Shrine, 1-1 Miyajimacho, Hatsukaichi 739-0588 Hiroshima Prefecture

Miyajima (宮島) is a small island less than an hour outside the city of Hiroshima. It is most famous for its giant torii gate, which at high tide seems to float on the water. The sight is ranked as one of Japan's three best views.

While officially named Itsukushima, the island is more commonly referred to as Miyajima, Japanese for "shrine island". This is because the island is so closely related to its key shrine, Itsukushima Shrine, in the public's mind. Like the torii gate, the shrine's main buildings are built over water.

Miyajima is a romantic place, best enjoyed by staying overnight at one of the island's ryokan. While there are usually many day tourists, in the evening the area becomes much quieter and more peaceful. There are also wild deer on the island that have become accustomed to people. In the day the deer wander around the same sites as the tourists, and in the evening they sleep along the walking paths.

Admission Fee: ¥300

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Mt. Misen, Miyajimacho, Hatsukaichi 739-0588 Hiroshima Prefecture

At 500 meters above sea level, Mount Misen (弥山) is the highest peak on Miyajima. On clear days, it affords spectacular views of the Seto Inland Sea and as far as Hiroshima City. There are also a number of Buddhist structures near the peak. A ropeway leads up the mountain from town, but it is also possible to climb up on foot.

There are three hiking trails leading up Misen: the Momijidani Course, the Daisho-in Course and the Omoto Course. Of the three, the Daisho-in Course offers the nicest views and is not as steep as the other two. The Momijidani Course, while the shortest, is also the steepest, leading mostly through the forest. Using any course, it takes 1.5 to 2 hours to reach the summit from town.

Ropeway: ¥1,840

Duration: 30 minutes

YAMASAKI San came with Plan A (by taxi) and Plan B (by public transport). For the almost 7 hours, he described the sights, sounds, history of Miyajima and Atomic Peace Park. Every minute was filled with wonders. His English is excellent. I have been to Japan many many times and he is the best guide. 👍👍👍👍👍

We felt we made the most of our day in Hiroshima visiting Miyojima and the Peace Park with Tom as a very knowledgeable guide with very good English. He fitted in very well with pace and needs, told us a lot about local traditions and way of life and we found him a delightful person.

We had a great day with our guide Yuko. She spoke great English and we saw all the highlights of Hiroshima. She told us to a “local” restaurant and we had an excellent local lunch speciality. Excellent food and excellent day! Thanks Yuko for making our visit so special.

We enjoyed this tour, our guide Miyuki was very nice and told us everything there is to know. We chose to visit Hiroshima Castle, Miyajima Island and the peace museum and atomic dome. Please bear in mind that the torii gate on Miyajima island is under construction at the moment, so the gate is not really visible, but the shrine itself is interesting and worth to see as well, especially during high tide.
Miyuki was a great guide who told us many stories about life in Hiroshima and Japan in general, and she was prepared for anything, we can completely recommend this tour!

Our guide Yuko was fantastic and she was very willing to accommodate our requests regarding the itinerary. She also took us to a great place for lunch to try Okonomiyaki. We did, indeed, have a nice day but as far as value for money goes I think this tour was way overpriced. It cost us around $US330 ($AUD480) and then we had to pay for all our transport costs (AND our guides) and entry fees. I think we could have done this tour on our own for a lot less.
