Hiroshima is an amazing place to visit and despite being almost wiped off the map by the atomic bomb of 1945, the city has a rich history. Millions of people visit Hiroshima each year to check out some of Hiroshima’s attractions.
The city is a more laid back and relaxing city to visit than cities like Tokyo or Osaka. When Hiroshima was rebuilt following world war two many city streets were widened while several blocks of once urban district were set aside for parks making Hiroshima one of the more beautiful cities in Japan.
Hiroshima has its own international airport and is only 4 hours from Tokyo or 2.5 hours from Osaka by the high speed shinkensen bullet train.
