I would appreciate some advice in arranging my day trip in Hiroshima.
I will be in Kyoto for a few days with entire stay covered by JR pass. I was planning to visit Hiroshima for one day. Plan to use JR pass to get to Hiroshima from Kyoto and back. There is a guided tour by japanican/JTB Sunrise which starts and ends at Hiroshima station (for JPY 15000). This covers visit to Miyajima, Itsukushima Shrine (120 min) with Ferry and visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park & Museum/atomic dome (100 min).
Now, I have realised that my JR pass covers the train to Miyajimaguchi from Hiroshima station and as well as the JR Ferry to Miyajima. On the way back to Hiroshima from Miyajimaguchi on the train, I can get off at Yokogawacho and walk to the Atomic dome. Entry to Peace museum is JPY 50 entry to Itsukushima Shrine is JPY 300..
So, effectively, I am paying almost all of my JPY 15000 for this guided tour for a guide to accompany me and provide the commentary.
Is this tour worth the money?
Or am I better off going around by myself and spend my time more leisurely at these places?
Are there any audio guides available at these two sites? or may be smartphone based apps/audio guides?
