Hiroshima

Hiroshima is the principal city of the Chugoku Region and home to over a million inhabitants. When the first atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the city became known worldwide for this unenviable distinction. The destructive power of the bomb was tremendous and obliterated nearly everything within a two kilometer radius. After the war, great efforts were taken to rebuild the city. Predictions that the city would be uninhabitable proved false. Destroyed monuments of Hiroshima's historical heritage, like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkeien Garden, were reconstructed. In the center of the city a large park was built and given a name that would reflect the aspirations of the re-born city: Peace Memorial Park. Hiroshima is most famous for its a-Bomb Dome.

Hi (Experience Japan Travel), hope all is well. The trip was an absolute pleasure for my wife and I. We had a wonderful time learning about the culture and enjyed the sights that you organized for us. The guides were delightful and created a very pleasant experience. The first Guide made us feel very welcomed on our arrival. She was very sweet and kind in assisting us to the hotel from the airport and for providing a brief insight to the itinerary. The Tokyo Guide was insightful as well as open to diverse discussions about Japans culture. It was very impressive how much she knew about Manga and the arts. She also was able to explain how the train system works in order for my wife and I to move around Tokyo with no issues, which worked out great. The Guide in Kyoto was delightful and made all the sights fun and interesting, specifically choosing the Imperial Palace in Kyoto in leui of one of the temples that was on the agenda. Overall, they all had something special to contribute to this wonderful trip. I also wanted to thank you personally for recommending Karuizawa, my wife especially enjoyed this particular stay for its relaxing ambiance. We cannot wait to go back and experience other parts of Japan. Well be reaching out to you for this future trip. Thanks so much! Best Regards, Fabio & Leslie... READ MORE
