Ontdek de wijken van Hiroshima
Wat reizigers zeggen over Hiroshima
Vooral het gebied met museum en gedenktekens voor de atoombom maken een diepe indruk. Het contrast met
het levendige centrum is groot, maar maken het een indrukwekkende stad. Je hebt in het centrum veel gevarieerde eetzaakjes voor een goede prijs.

Meer over Hiroshima
Peace Memorial Park in the city center is a collection of moving, often heartbreaking museums and memorials. The Children's Peace Monument is perhaps the most sobering as it immortalizes Sadako, a young girl and victim of fallout. As Hiroshima was rebuilding, Sadako inspired the entire city through her quest to fold 1,000 origami cranes. An old saying states that a person who folds this many cranes gets a single wish granted. Sadako never finished her thousandth crane – she got to 644 before leukemia took her life, but she lives on in Hiroshima's very real quest to end nuclear armament.
Hiroshima Castle was rebuilt in the 1950s after being destroyed by the bomb. The grounds boast hundreds of sakura trees, which are lovely in the springtime. The castle is located near Chuo Park and operates an interesting museum. Several other parks and temples on the fringes of the city are wonderful daytrip destinations.
Intense ground-up construction has yielded some truly remarkable hotels near Hiroshima. These are planted throughout the central district, as well as near Hiroshima Airport. This domestic terminal serves several prominent cities in Japan.
