What people are saying about Atomic Bomb Dome

Our tour of Hiroshima with Yuki was amazing. Mirajima Island is absolutely worth it, and hopefully you will get to witness Yuki’s special talent. The Peace Park and museum are particularly poignant and not to be missed. We highly recommend Yuki’s tour.
