Hiroshima Pre-tour Extension 3 Days 2 Nights (Self-guided/Group Tour)


Not available in 2020.

Cannot be combined with South Korea extension.

The tour will be either self-guided or a group tour depending on the size of group.

Hiroshima is famous for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Itsukushima Shrine and Atomic Bomb Dome.

Tour Highlights:

  • Take a cruise to Itsukushima Shrine best known for its ‘floating torii’ on the sea, the gate to Itsukushima. The beautiful torii gate stands in the water when it is high tide. When it is low tide, you may walk though torii gate.
  • Visit the Atomic Bomb Dome and Museum to learn the history of Hiroshima

From the end of March through early April, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, people gather in parks in a Japanese tradition known as hanami (flower viewing).

From the end of October through early November is the best season of the year for viewing the vibrant crimson maple leaves in Japan. You can feel the fragile beauty of the changing seasons from observing nature. The fiery red is a true spectacle.

NOTE: Cherry blossoms and crimson autumn leaves are highly seasonal and subject to climatic conditions. These are historically the best times to view the blooms, but we can’t guarantee they will flower on these dates.
