Hiroshima and Miyajima

At the focus point of the beautifully thought out Peace Park is the A-bomb dome, a sombre reminder of history in this otherwise vibrant city with the tram system lending a laid-back European feel. At Shukkei-en, one of our favourite gardens, you may catch herons landing in the water between ornamental bridges. Picturesque Miyajima island is just a short ride away, where you can stroll along the shore as traditional stone lanterns are lit around Itsukushima shrine with its iconic ‘floating’ red gate.
