Grapple with history and appreciate modernity in Hiroshima, a city known around the world for its tragic past and inspiring rebirth.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Peace Memorial Park - Hiroshima. Let the collections at Yamato Museum and Mazda Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Hiroshima side-trips: JMSDF Kure Museum (in Kure) and Hatsukaichi (Shiraito River, Itsukushima Shrine Torii, &more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims, pause for some photo ops at The Cenotaph, steep yourself in history at Atomic Bomb Dome, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mitaki Temple.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Visit Nanzen-ji Temple and Nishi Honganji for their historical value. Explore hidden gems such as Eikando Zenrinji Temple and Toji. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kobe (Kawasaki Good Times World & Arima Onsen), Nara (Toshodai-ji Temple & Nigatsu-do Temple) and Kyoto (Shimogamo Jinja, Kennin-ji Temple, &more). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Dotombori District, appreciate the extensive heritage of Hozenji Yokocho, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hōzen-ji Temple, and steep yourself in history at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine.
