While no visit to Hiroshima would be complete without a trip to the poignant Peace Memorial Park and Museum which pays respect to the city’s tragic past, this friendly welcoming city with a great food scene has much more to offer. Visit the restored 16th century castle, marvel at the miniature landscapes of Shukkeien Gardens and enjoy the sight of Japan’s largest assembly line at the Mazda Museum.
The vibrant downtown district of Hiroshima around the pedestrianised Hondori Street arcade is filled with exciting shopping, restaurants and karaoke bars. Try the delicious Hiroshima style okonomiyaki, a savoury cake created from batter, vegetables and noodles, which is fried and drizzled with sauce. For the best examples, head to an area of Hondori known as Okonomimura, full of speciality restaurants.
