Hiroshima

What is Hiroshima?

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.

Getting Around

Despite its location in the very west of Japan’s main island, Hiroshima can be reached on one bullet train from Tokyo in around four hours. From here, trips down to the south of the prefecture can be made on JR trains as well as the ferry across to Miyajima, which is included with the JR Pass.
