Well-known throughout #Japan as being home to some of the country’s warmest – and most passionate – people, #Hiroshima gets kind of a bum rap in the outside world. Of course, being the first city in the history of mankind to be destroyed by an atomic bomb is quite a grim legacy. But Hiroshima is so much more than that. Quietly and consistently voted as one of the most livable cities in the country, Hiroshima is still an under-appreciated destination spot on a first-timer’s Japan bucket list!
Hiroshima is a city with a tragic history. Places you must visit are the Atomic Bomb Dome, the Children’s Peace Monument, the Peace Memorial Hall and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial museum. Don’t forget to visit Hiroshima Castle as well. Read this 1 day itinerary with budget info, map, accommodation & food advice.:
