HIGHLIGHTS:

* Admire one of the most photographed spots in Japan
* Create memories at the 6th century Itsukushima Shrine
* See wild deer in Miyajima
* Tour Hiroshima's haunting Atomic Bomb Dome

Departing from Kyoto we travel to the small island of Miyajima (meaning ‘shrine island’), which depending on the number of participants we travel to by bus, jumbo taxi or train to this magical destination; a top pick amongst tourists who come to Japan. Home to one of the most scenic views in the country, once we arrive you can set your eyes on the vermillion shrine floating majestically above the deep blue water, acting as the gateway to the Itsukushima Shrine. Established in the 6th century, it’s famous for its ornate Shinden-zukuri style structure and set amongst lush scenery, here you’ll also see wild deer roaming freely in the untouched abundant nature of Miyajima.

We return to Miyajimaguchi via ferry where we make our way to the next stop: Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum. The city, whose name serves as a reminder of the fateful event on 6th August 1945, opened a park to serve as a reminder to future generations. The Atomic Bomb Dome is a symbol of the disaster, which has been preserved as it was in order to promote peace and the elimination of atomic weapons.

Located in Itsukushima, the Itsukushima shrine has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. It has been visited by many tourists for its breathtaking scenery and rich history that dates back to 1400. The shrine has a unique architectural design called "Shinden style” (temple style) and is built over the bay so that when the tide rises, it looks as if it's floating.

By exploring this island, you will have a unique experience with local Japanese guides who are fluent in the history of Itsukushima. There are a number of historical sites that are known only to local residents. Not only can you learn more about Japanese history and culture but you'll be able to have some peace and quiet that is hard to find in busy cities.

Points of interest/ itinerary:
1. Itsukushima Shrine - The famous shrine is the source of the island's name. Its iconic torii gate built in the water appears to float effortlessly in the sea during high tides. The shrine complex includes other buildings including a main hall, a prayer hall, a theater stage, and much more.

2. Daisho-in - The oldest temple in Miyajima is located where you can look over the wonderful view of the city. The boom of the temple bell and the smell of the incense will heal your heart.

3. Momijidani Park - From spring to summer, you will be able to see beautiful green trees all over, and these leaves change their colors into yellow and red in autumn, which is absolutely amazing.
