You can catch this bus for free if you have the JR pass. There are three different routes designated by colour, and they take you to the main tourist attractions around Hiroshima. You can get a map and timetable from the tourist information centre.

You cant beat this for value. Its free with the JR Rail pass. The positives are there are 3 separate bus routes but there all cover the main attractions. So the next bus is never far away.

Apart from being constantly late, something very uncharacteristic in japan, the route is not completely logical as it takes you some distance from the actual sights. Its run like a local bus, with minimal English. Unfortunately the bus driver closed the hydraulic door on my...More
