My wife and I absolutely loved the bicycle tour given by “Yuri”. She showed us many peace monuments around Hiroshima and told us accounts from people that survived the tragedy had remembered this sad part of human history. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy riding a bicycle after so many years but Yuri’s capacity to make us welcome and her patience and happiness was contagious. I am very glad to have joined this tour. I have learned a lot about human suffering but also about the hope for the future Hiroshima possesses. Yuri made the point that out of tragedy can come new hope. There is a real focus on Peace now in Hiroshima. It is a tremendous city. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to have an insight into the Hiroshima bomb from Yuri’s touching and unique perspective.
