Hi, I'm YUJI. I was born and raised in Hiroshima.
This tour will allow you to efficiently explore the two World Heritage sites in Hiroshima with a local guide in half a day. If you have time to stay in Hiroshima for a full day, please take this tour. We will visit two World Heritage Sites and share with you the history, religion, and delicious local foods and drinks of Hiroshima.
Through this tour, I just want to share not only some moving stories from my people but also introduce how we recovered from such situations. In addition, we want you to experience our story from a local's perspective.
In this tour, we will guide you not only to Hiroshima peace memorial park, but to local preserved scenes of atomic bomb as well.
Our local tour guide will take you to places that aren't well known among the majority, as well as places that have a deep connection to the history of Hiroshima. By visiting these places, you will have a deeper understanding of what transpired over decades ago. You will also hopefully be able to feel the resurgence of optimism in this beautiful city that still continues to this day.
After that, your guide will take you to Miyajima island. As everyone knows, Miyajima has a very famous floating shrine called Itsukushima Shrine. However, this holy island has much more to offer than just this one extraordinary shrine. The island itself is known as a spiritual power spot, and on this tour, prepare to learn about Japanese Buddhism as well as Shinto religions and their differences, and visit the just as special Daishoin Temple and be enlightened!
We will start expoloring Miyajima by taking an in-depth look into the world of Shinto and the famous World Heritage Itsukushima Shrine and the famous great red Torii gate in the sea. After this we will take you into the world of Japanese Buddhism and this unique, mystical temple with its plethora of different statues will surely amaze you.
After enjoying your stroll around this beautiful island and with a brain full of new knowledge on Japanese history, religion and culture get ready to chow down on some local delicacies! Try out some fresh local oysters, fried Momiji dumplings, and steamed buns with different fillings!
