Full description
In Hiroshima City, there are many heritage sites in the suburbs in addition to the Peace Memorial Park, each with a story connected to the atomic bombing. While at the heritage site of the bombing, we will introduce you to the power of the atomic bomb and the situation at the time. 70 years after the war, the destroyed Hiroshima has been dramatically revitalized, and now you can see it full of greenery. You can get a real sense of it through your own eyes, and cycling is the best way to do that. With the guidance of our local staff, who grew up in the city, come and experience the real Hiroshima that you can't experience through photos and books. <About the route> [11:00 / 15:00] Meeting up [11:05/15:05] Peace Memorial Park What is the Peace Memorial Park?

Excellent tour 3 hours well spent with wonderful guides Yui and Toby

A really great tour seeing the main sights as well as other more off the beaten track locations. An insight into the recovery of Hiroshima following the A-bomb and the resilience of the people. Very knowledgeable and passionate guides complimented the tour with personal stories and reflections. Don’t miss it.
