Tailor-made Hiroshima Holidays

No one who visits Hiroshima can fail to be moved beyond measure by the affecting reminders of the most cataclysmic day in its history. On 6 August 1945, this otherwise unremarkable coastal city was catapulted into the public consciousness by the dropping of the first atom bomb, which completely obliterated almost everything and everyone within a mile of the impact.

That terrible event is commemorated in the Peace Memorial Park, located in what was once one of Hiroshima’s busiest central districts. Its most famous sight is the Atomic Bomb Dome with its distinctive skeletal steel roof, which almost miraculously survived the blast and has been preserved as a stark reminder of the horrors of nuclear weapons. There’s also a museum whose primary focus is the effect of the bomb on the city and its inhabitants told through heartrending personal artefacts, photos and more, a tour of which is sobering but essential.

Hiroshima’s tale of destruction and rebirth is best explored with a local guide. Talk to our Japan experts who can connect you with the right people on the ground.
