  • The Atomic Dome in Hiroshima
Start this all-day tour with a shinkansen bullet train ride to Hiroshima. Once in the historic city, head a bit afield to the seemingly magical Itsukushima Shrine and its torii gate. Built on stilts, the shrine and gate both seem to float on the water, a fantasy brought to life at high tide. Back in Hiroshima proper, the Peace Memorial Park and A-Bomb Dome are reminders of the country's history, and a living prayer for peace and compassion throughout the world.
