Hiroshima 2 nights
Day 1 Kyoto/Hiroshima: Travel for two hours by Shinkansen bullet train from Kyoto to Hiroshima and on arrival walk the short distance to your hotel. The city will forever be known for events back in 1945; however, today vibrant Hiroshima is full of wide boulevards, friendly people, great food and a wonderful laid-back ambience.
Day 2 Hiroshima: A full day to explore independently. A must see is the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, built to honour the victims of the atomic bomb, which has many memorials, monuments, statues and a museum. We also recommend taking a short tram and ferry ride to Miyajima Island where you’ll find the 6th century floating Torii Gate. Whilst on the island you may wish to hike (or take the cable car) up to the peak of Mt Misen for spectacular views of the surrounding islands.
Day 3 Hiroshima/Kyoto: Return by bullet train to Kyoto where your tour concludes.
New Hiroden Hiroshima - 3* Plus
Conveniently located close to the JR Hiroshima Station and within easy reach of the city centre, the hotel stands elegantly beside the banks of the Kyobashi River, one of the six rivers that flow through Hiroshima. The hotel has 256 well-appointed rooms, massage services, a buffet restaurant which offers local and western dishes, while snacks and beverages can be enjoyed at Bar Etoile. However, thanks to the hotel’s central location, there’s also a good choice of restaurants in the vicinity and when it comes to sightseeing, you’ll be within easy reach of Hiroshima Toshogu and Hiroshima Castle.
