4 Nights: from US$884 per person (twin share) Trip Code: AOHMC

Your adventure in Japan isn't over yet! Say a fond farewell to your Small Group Tour and head west to spend four nights in the modern city of Hiroshima, full of poignant history and delicious food, and the island of Miyajima with its floating vermillion torii shrine gate. Read more >

After your Small Group Tour Spring Elegance finishes in Tokyo, how about extending your stay in Japan with a Self-Guided Adventure to Hiroshima?

In this add-on trip you will travel independently from Tokyo to Hiroshima for a one night stay in the city. You will then take a ferry to Miyajima to stay two nights in a traditional ryokan inn before heading back up to Tokyo for your final night in Japan.

A stay in Hiroshima is not complete without a sobering visit to the Peace Memorial Park and Museum to remember the city's deeply tragic past. Yet in defiance of the events of 1945, Hiroshima has rebuilt itself as a lively modern city, and it is home to one of the most popular dishes in Japan: savoury okonomiyaki pancakes.

After a night in Hiroshima you'll head on a local train down to the port and take a ferry over to Miyajima Island to spend two nights there, passing the iconic Itsukushima Shrine orange torii gate on the way, which is considered to be one of the top three views of Japan. Miyajima is home to traditional temples, little shops, and some rather curious deer.

We've given you a final night back in Tokyo in the lively Shinjuku area. One of Shinjuku's top attractions is Golden Gai, a maze of little bars and tiny restaurants with a fun, vibrant atmosphere. How about a final look around the huge shops for some last-minute souvenirs? Have a look in your complimentary Info-Pack for some of our best recommendations of how to spend your final night in Tokyo. The following day you will take the Narita Express train from Shinjuku Station out to Narita Airport in plenty of time for your flight home.

This extension package is designed to be bolted on to one of our Small Group Tours. It works best when combined with Spring Elegance. Please note that the extension is Self-Guided. This means you will not be travelling in a group or with a tour leader, but full instructions including details of your journeys and directions to your accommodation will be included in your complimentary InsideJapan Tours' Info-Pack.
