Unlocking the mysteries of the shrine on the sea

We will introduce Itsukushima Shrine and its origins, as well as detail points of interest for your visit. You will see the incredible craftsmanship that made the construction of this shrine possible.

A symbol of Hiroshima and a focus for prayers for world peace

The dome was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1996 as a result of the citizens of Hiroshima coming together to appeal for world peace. Visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, the Cenotaph for Atomic Bomb Victims and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum to gain a deeper understanding of the suffering caused by war and nuclear weapons and the true value of peace.
