Full description
Cycle around Hiroshima with an English-speaking guide and feel the backstory of the city come to life. Hear about the locals' great reconstruction efforts, even though it was said that nothing could grow in Hiroshima for 70 years. Visit many places and monuments related to the atomic bombing but also sense the energy of the present city as you ride around it in a small group of no more than 10 people.

After gathering at the meeting point, make your way to Enko River. Soak up the scenery as your guide tells you about Hiroshima's geographical features and development. Next, head to Hiroshima Castle and Gokoku Shrine to find out more about culture and history in Hiroshima.

Once there, see the remains of the headquarters where the initial report of the atomic bombing was transmitted as your guide fills you in with details of the situation and suffering in Hiroshima after the dropping of the bomb. Move on to Peace Memorial Park to discover the Atomic Bomb Dome and more. Hear stories from the locals' point of view rarely seen in museum exhibitions and books.

Finally, follow your guide away from the touristic area to explore suburbs like Sendamachi. Find beautiful Hiroshima vigorously revived from the tremendous damage of the atomic bombing while visiting numerous A-bomb heritage sites. Listen to episodes handed down in Hiroshima as you see sights like Miyukibashi Bridge and Kyobashi River. The tour concludes at the original meeting point.
