In Hiroshima we will visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and A-Bomb Dome. A visit to these landmarks is necessary in understanding Japanese history. The Peace Memorial Park was created in dedication to the victims of the Hiroshima atomic bombing and for the hope of world peace. The A-Bomb Dome was formerly the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall which was located just around 500 feet from the hypocenter of the atomic bomb. Due to the vaporization of the atomic bomb, the building did not completely collapse, leaving the skeletal remains to be preserved by Hiroshima as a reminder.

This Anime Japan Tour 11 Days will also venture out to the island of Miyajima famous for its Itsukushima Shrine, or floating torii gates. The shrine received its “floating” nickname for its unique appearance it gains during high tide when the torii appears to be floating. On Miyajima you will have time to walk around the island where you will encounter deer, and perhaps try some of its famous momiji manju, maple leaf shaped cakes, or some local oysters. The tour will end in Hiroshima after some sightseeing back in Hiroshima. You can also extend your vacation before/ after this Anime Japan Tour in Hiroshima, Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto.
