(GUEST RELATIONS) for 10:30a.m.

10:30 AM
HIROSHIMA STATION , 1-2番37号 Matsubarachō, Minami Ward, Hiroshima, 732-0822, Japan
Depart from a centrally located Hiroshima hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and relax during the scenic journey to Miyajima, which literally translates as ‘shrine island’. Board a ferry and sail towards the natural haven of the island, stopping to see playful monkeys and wild deer surround the renowned Itsukushima Shrine. Spend a moment admiring the dynamic architecture of the temple and hear of its rich historical heritage from your guide.
Next, head to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park to explore a verdant expanse dedicated to promoting peace. Built to commemorate the destructive atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima in 1945, the park houses the Peace Memorial Museum and a selection of monuments that commemorate those lost in the explosion. Browse intriguing exhibitions and visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, a skeletal structure that partially survived the blast.
Spend a moment reflecting quietly at the Memorial Cenotaph for Atomic Bomb Victims and read the seemingly interminable list of those lost in the brutal explosion. Visit more monuments, including the Cenotaph fro Korean Victims, and then return to a central Hiroshima location at the end of your moving tour.

Amazing place and tour. A must, place to visit in your bucket list. It will provide you with a new meaning to the term "start from scratch". Miyajima island is a beautiful and busy place. Plenty of places to eat, or drink (Literally, there's a bar that was packed in the afternoon!) There's even a Starbucks! Amy did a great job as a Tour Guide. Don't miss it.

Hiroshima Peace memorial park and Miyajima Island Tour
Mary L
, Nov 2019
Should have given Miyajima Island a pass. It is a tourist trap and the Tori gate was under repair and could not be seen. Food catered to tourists and was bad all around. Hiroshima Peace memorial is a great memorial and very moving to see the effects of nuclear weapons. Tour guide was not good. Just kept talking about herself which was very annoying. I did not sign up for the tour to hear about her personal issues. She did not say much about the Hiroshima bombing.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajimacho Island tour

The tour of Hiroshima was very moving and the Guide Amy did a good job. She was personally involved as she told us her Mother was pregnant with her at the time of the dropping of the atomic bomb and it was only by chance that her parents were out of town on that day that they survived. We also enjoyed the ferry ride to the Island and the shops on the Island. All in all a very enjoyable trip. Stephen and Leila Stone

This tour gets you around to two UNESCO world heritage sites with ample time to explore. 3 hours Miyajima and 3 hours Peace Park. Both sites are exceptional.

We did the tour of Miyajima Island and Hiroshima Peace Park with Sunrise Tours a few days ago. Miyajima island was absolutely beautiful and it was very quiet (which we were told was rare) so we were able to take it easy and enjoy ourselves. Hiroshima was powerful and very moving... But such an incredible experience. However, this was all made exponentially by our wonderful guide - Nobu-san. She gave us so much detail and background about everything we were seeing and she had personal connections to the tragedy back in 1945. She was an amazing guide but also a wonderful person. I would highly recommend this and if you go - fingers crossed that Nobu-san is your guide!

We went to the Atomic Dome which is the last surviving building after WWII. Then we went to the Peace Memorial. The Peace Memorial is an experience unlike any other. At first it seems very clinical and straight forward with exhibits talking about the people who discovered atomic energy, the people who weaponised it, the people who ordered it to be used, how they selected Hiroshima, and even where they were aiming for. Then it tells the personal stories of people in Hiroshima. The victims, the children, families... it is a unique experience and should not be missed. Then we went to Miyajima island. It is a beautiful island with a beautiful shrine, the Tori Gate, deer, and lots of sponge cakes :

This was a great 101 tour with the lovely and picturesque island of Miyajima. This is no criticism of the tour but there were so many people on the island and it was almost impossible to really enjoy the sights and scenery without doing most of it on your own. Highly recommend wandering and looking and things and perhaps taking the boat to the Peace Park in town. We wanted to spend so much more time on Miyajima. Anyways, the tour at the Memorial Park was nice and enjoyed the serenity of the area in spite of the incredibly painful history of this location.

Our guide Mariko was wonderful. Even if you have more than a day in Hiroshima, this day trip is totally worth doing. She is very knowledgeable, and her explanations deserve a 10 out of 10!

The guide on the trip was excellent, Samin was very knowledgeable and moved us to tears with her personal family accounts. The one thing I would change about the trip is the amount of time dedicated to the memorial park and museum. It was way too short. The tour could start earlier than 10:30, say around 9:00 to accommodate that.

We took the Shinkansen from/to Kyoto and met tour right outside Hiroshima station. Guide was knowledgeable and spoke English well. Would've preferred to spend more time at Hiroshima than Miyajima but we enjoyed both. If you want to spend entire day at Peace Park, don't take this tour.

Harrison P
, Oct 2017
The tour was good. Everything we saw was interesting and well laid out. Unfortunately, the tour leader spoke very poor broken English. For the amount of money we paid for this tour we expected a tour leader who could speak fluent English, but instead we got someone who read from notes all day, consistently got the words wrong and left many people in the group confused. She also used a portable microphone that was so quiet, unless you stood directly in front of her it was hard to hear. This was then further complicated by her constant turning around as she talked, meaning most people would hear 1-2 words before she turned away. Overall we were very disappointed by the tour. Other tours through this company have been great, but this was definitely a low point of our trip.

It is a really very nice hotel. It's position right on the station is great. The staff very pleasant and helpful. We booked a club room that was very good. A good selection of Western and Japanese food was on offer whilst having a drink, again with good choice Breakfast was included in our rate and again the Quality and choice was very good. The room was spacious and kept clean. They also supply Yukatas Which is a nice touch and convenient too. We were travelling through and stayed two nights. Very pleasant ones. A very good base for travel and a comfortable base to return to after a day out sightseeing. My wife and I would recommend it a very good hotel for tourists or businessmen on the move.

We had a small group 5 which made the tour much quicker as we didn't have to wait for anyone. This gave us more free time to enjoy Miyajima Island which was very interesting. We didn't expect a market on the island. Hiroshima Peace Park was a moving experience and our guide gave us lots of information to understand what we saw. Our guide was excellent.
