Contemplating Peace at 'Water Front City Hiroshima'
Hiroshima is not just a monochrome image; it is a place filled with beautiful nature, a healthy environment, and the most peaceful atmosphere in the world. Through the new sport of SUP (Stand-Up Paddleboarding), set out to discover the reasons from your unique perspective atop the river.

This tour takes you down the rivers flowing through the city of Hiroshima towards the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Atomic Bomb Dome, covering a round trip of 3 km.

Hiroshima City is characterized by six rivers that have played a significant role in its development due to its topography. In the past, the upper reaches of these rivers were bustling with charcoal iron manufacturing, and transporting iron materials to places like Osaka was an essential function of these rivers. During the summer, the sight of children jumping and swimming in the rivers, engaging in water play, was a common scene and rivers were an integral part of the daily lives of Hiroshima's people.

However, everything changed drastically on August 6, 1945, when the world's first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Many lives were lost in the rivers, creating a distance between the people of Hiroshima and the rivers.

After the atomic bomb was dropped, it was believed that grass and trees would not grow in Hiroshima for 75 years. Despite this, the city, centered around its pre-war river-based technology, culture, and the people's resilience, has been rebuilt into the beautiful city we see today, with rivers, greenery, and expansive skies leaving a lasting impression.

Through this tour, feel the peace of present-day Hiroshima and enjoy the landscape that connects to the future by riding on SUP.
