Hiroshima and Miyajima Discovery
Hiroshima, city of peace. Miyajima, island of the gods. With a private English-speaking guide, discover these two must-see places in Japan.
Hiroshima is a small city in size, but big in importance in the history of Japan. It was the first city in the world to be hit by the atomic bomb. The impact site, which was then the administrative and commercial centre of the city, and still the geographical centre, was never rebuilt, but was later transformed into a large Memorial, consisting of a park and a museum.
Miyajima, the sacred island, and the Istukushima sanctuary
Miyajima, off the coast of Hiroshima, is also a must-see when visiting the region. The "Island of the Gods" is accessible only by boat and is home to the famous Itsukushima Shrine, and its Torii on the water which is one of the three "Nihon Sankei", the three most beautiful landscapes in Japan.
