Hiroshima Trip 2018 - Day 2 - Hop on Hop Off Bus - Hiroshima Meipuru-pu (Sightseeing Bus)

What better way to see Hiroshima City was to take the sightseeing bus that go round the city. The price was reasonable too. It was a hop on and hop off bus at one price. It costs only 400 yen for adult and 200 yen for children for a one day pass (unlimited rides for the whole day). A single fare for the bus is 200 yen so it is more worthwhile to buy the one day pass.

The bus is located at the car park at the Shinkansen Exit of Hiroshima Station. The same car park where the airport bus is located.

Tickets can be purchased from the ticket office near the car park or from the driver. It is free for those with Japan Rail Pass.

For the one day pass, need scratch the correct date,month and year to use for the day. Always show the one day pass card to the driver on boarding the bus.

There's are three routes for the sightseeing bus, the orange route, green route and lemon route.

The bus is very punctual, the timing of arrival and departure are shown on the bus stops and also on the phamplet.
