We decided to explore Hiroshima after the island, as it is quite possible to see both places in one day.
What to Do: This part of the trip was unique in that we spent a decent amount of time exploring the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The museum was a very humbling experience, as I was able to witness firsthand the effects the atomic bomb had on the people of Japan. Tickets to the museum are quite reasonable, and the tour takes you through what the people of that city experienced and endured. At the end of the tour, you arrive at the A-Dome, otherwise known as the only structure left standing from the actual attack. It was a sombre realisation that so many lives were lost in such a brutal fashion where I was standing.
