The guides and drivers were very knowledgable about the areas and took care of us well

Hiroshima

Few destinations can be as sobering as Hiroshima, whose name immediately conjures the atomic annihilation that occurred there at 08:15 on August 6, 1945, in the final days of World War II. But beyond the alternately sorrowful and inspirational World War II memorials, the city offers lovely strolling gardens, substantial art museums, and the landmark Hiroshima Castle, rebuilt after the war to its original splendor and providing striking views of the city and Miyajima Island.

Nonetheless, Hiroshima is much more than a single tragic episode; visit Miyajima, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Itsukushima Shrine; the Children's Peace Monument, dedicated to Sadako Sasaki, a victim of the atomic bomb and the protagonist of the 1,000 Cranes story; and hike the slopes of Mount Misen.
