Classic Hiroshima and Miyajima City Tour
- Full Day
The day starts with a train ride to Miyajimaguchi Port to get on board the ferry to Miyajima, a small sacred island located in the Seto Inland Sea. Aside from the local residents, there is also quite a population of deer residing on the island due to the influence of Buddhism.

There are quite a few highlights on the island that must not be missed. One of these is Itsukushima Shrine, designated as one of Japan's three most beautiful views. The shrine is designed in a pier-like structure and dates all the way back to the 6th century. The most iconic structure on the island is undoubtedly the huge vermillion o-torii gate, which seems to be floating on the sea during high tide.

Another highlight is Daisho-in, the most visited Buddhist temple on the island located on the foot of Mt. Misen. Along the stairs is a row of spinning sutras that lead up to the main hall. It is believed that whoever turns these sutras while going up the stairs will be blessed.

Miyajima is also frequented for its local delicacies. Some of the most recommended dishes are anago (saltwater eel), kaki (oysters), and momiji manju (maple leaf-shaped cakes).

Another scenic journey is in store on board a small boat that sails across Hiroshima Bay and Ota River from the sacred island to the tranquil Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum. Apart from the museum are a few monuments such as the A-Bomb Dome, the Children's Peace Monument, and the central cenotaph.

For a free evening in Hiroshima, guests have the option to part ways with their guide after the tour of the park.
