  • Getting To Hiroshima

    Hiroshima Transportation

    We travelled to Hiroshima by bullet train on a day trip from Osaka. There are several trains an hour from Shin-Osaka station, and the journey takes about 90 minutes. The trip was covered by our JR passes. As this was an independent day out, rather than part of our tour, we had no pre-booked seat reservations. We could have queued for some at the...

    Hiroshima Transportation

    To get to the Peace Memorial Park from Hiroshima station we took the trolley bus. You can catch either number 2 or 6. The fare is a flat 150¥ and you pay on leaving the bus.

  • JR West Rail Pass

    The stretch Osaka-Kyoto is not covered by the West Rail Pass, as it is managed by JR Central. You can either buy a ticket for that stretch in advance or at the station, before you leave the shinkansen area (but I am not 100 % sure of this latter possibility).

  • Shimanami Kaido

    The trip along the Shimanami Kaido from Shikoku is a good one, as the road goes through numerous islands on the way to Hiroshima prefecture.Ikuchijima and Innoshima are two islands in Hiroshima prefecture that are accessible on this road.

  • The Shinkansen

    Hiroshima is one of the stops of the Shinkansen, so it's easy to get to. It is about 30 minutes from Okayama station, 1 hour from Kobe, and 6 hours from Tokyo. The ride is smooth, so even from Tokyo, it's not bad!

  • The Other Streetcar City

    Take the streetcar in and around Hiroshima. It is very cheap, but if you buy a pass at the train station it is even cheaper! It is a neat experience.
