Introduction
In the four syllables of Hiroshima lie an infinite number of feelings and a range of experiences that have made the city one of Japan’s most-visited destinations. As a memorial to human tenacity over the utter destruction of war, this is an essential for every traveler who seeks to understand our world. Our visit pays respect to the consequences of the detonation of the first atomic bomb. But we also explore the beauty and more distant history of Hiroshima with visits to the sacred island of Miyajima and Shukkeien Garden, where perfect landscapes are created in miniature. Experienced on the heels of a week in Tokyo, Hakone and Kyoto, these days in Hiroshima will add immeasurably to your understanding of contemporary life in Japan.

The best time to visit Japan is generally in spring or autumn. Spring (March-May) sees a lot of the country ablaze with beautiful white and pink cherry blossoms. In April and May, the afternoon temperatures reach an average of 18.5 to 23 degrees, while temperatures in the morning and night are around 10.5 to 15 degrees. Autumn (September-November) sees similar temperatures, which are now a welcome respite from the muggy heat of the summer. The country now changes into a have of red and scarlet leaves which contrast strikingly against the deep blue clear skies.
