Hiroshima (広島) is the main city of the Chugoku region and is home to 1.2 million inhabitants. The city sadly became famous after being hit by the first atomic bomb in human history, on August 6, 1945. The explosion destroyed much of Hiroshima, which was however quickly rebuilt by the tenacious Japanese people, as well as the ancient feudal castle and the Shukkeien Garden. Today, in the epicenter of the explosion, there is the great Peace Park, a place dedicated to memory and which marks the thoughts of all those who go to visit it.

Quick answers about Hiroshima

Is Hiroshima worth visiting?

Yes, Hiroshima is worth a visit for any tourist traveling to Japan. The area of the Peace Park, with its museum of memory and various commemorative monuments, is a unique place in the world. It is worth visiting to remember the atrocities of war and learn about the devastating impact of an atomic bomb.
