Well-known throughout as being home to some of the country’s warmest – and most passionate – people, 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
Our first stay in Hiroshima was planned mostly to give us a full day to explore Miyajima Island, it wasn& until we were sitting on the Shinkensen from Tokyo that I started wondering how I would actually feel wandering around Hiroshima.
Hiroshima is a symbol of hope and peace. Pay your respects in Peace Park and museum. There are many things to do within the city and then you can unwind in Miyajima. Plan your time here with my Hiroshima travel tips and guide.
