Our guide Jun was very friendly and relaxed, got along with everyone and made us feel like we were being taken out by a local mate. The dome/peace park was emotional time and so worth doing. Jun shared stories and context of the tragedy and made paper cranes for us which was really nice. He also took us for an amazing local lunch okonomiyaki, so tasty! The Miyajima part was awesome too, overall an amazing day.
Rio excellent guide. Took this tour using our jr pass from kyoto to hiroshima. Took the Shinkansen train arrival Hiroshima at 1000 hrs and tours starts at 1000 hrs. Rio waits just at the exit, he cannot be missed with the flag. Tour finished at 17:30 hrs and took the return train at 17:42. It can be timed to perfection.
Miyajima island is good place pick up some souvenirs.
Our guide was very willing to answer questions. He was thoughtful and gave good explanations. It was worthwhile having a tour at these two sites.
