Hiroshima is a popular city in Japan famous for the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Sites – Itsukushima Shrine and Atomic Bomb Dome.

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 June to August, it is the best time to view fresh spring greens and enjoy the warm climate.

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.
