Spring comes earlier in the Hiroshima area, and on a sunny warm day, a couple enjoyed our Hiroshima private tour with our driver guide.
Miyajima Island is the highlight of the tour. When the tide is high, the vermilion torii gate looks floating, and when it’s low, you can reach there by walking on the sand. Both are fun experiences!
Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima is built by a famous samurai leader. It’s dedicated to three Japanese goddess.
Our customer tried omikuji, fortune telling. It told him a good luck! Something good will happen to him soon!
Miyajima is also a Buddhism sacred destination. The five-story pagoda is one of the symbols of the island.
Now we are in the Peace Memorial Park of the Hiroshima City Center. This is the place to learn the history of World War II and pray for peace.
Our customer tried origami, a Japanese traditional art. We make cranes by folding papers and offer it at the memorial monument.
Well done! Origami is quite easy if you understand how to do it. Don’t worry, our driver guide will help you make it.
Nature, history, and art — you will have a great chance to understand various things about Japan in a day. That’s why Hiroshima is one of the must-visit places in Japan!
