OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

Make a pilgrimage to Itsukushima Island, commonly known as ‘Miyajima’, home to the Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s listed as one of the ‘Three Views of Japan’ found just off the coastline northwest of Hiroshima Bay.

Hiroshima is a region that’s suffered great adversity in modern times, and had the unfathomable misfortune of being the target of the first atomic bomb during World War II.

The plucky region used the opportunity to reinvent itself, rising out of the ashes of devastation to rebuild a city that honors those who tragically lost their lives. The city is home to many outstanding museums and parks that pay homage to its lost children.

The main attraction of Hiroshima is undoubtedly the majestic gate at Itsukushima Shrine on Itsukushima Island which is lovingly called ‘Miyajima’ by locals which means ‘Shrine Island’.

The Shrine contains The Floating Torii Gate, a pier-like structure which is one of the most photographed sites in Japan. While on the island you can also hike (or take a cable car ride) to the top of Mt. Misen to get a scenic view of the surrounding region.

 
THE BACKYARD DIFFERENCE
  • Explore an important region in Japanese history, rebuilt after a devastating attack during World War II
  • Visit the quaint island of Itsukushima, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s home to the famous Floating Torii Gate, listed as one of the ‘Three Views of Japan’
  • Learn about the culture of this less-visited area with tours around its many fascinating museums
