Hiroshima Hotels

Hiroshima is a vibrant city overflowing with historic sights and lush green gardens. Hiroshima is the capital of the forest-blanketed Hiroshima Prefecture, a lush mountainous region set at the southwestern end of Japan’s main Honshu Island. Culture-vultures will love the city’s many art galleries, heritage museums, and city-wide festivals, while fashionistas and bargain-hunters will enjoy the shopping arcades and traditional markets. Thanks to Hiroshima’s thriving local cuisine scene, foodies will also get their fill.

Things to see

Start your busy Hiroshima day by visiting the solemn Peace Memorial, a striking red-brick ruin of an industrial hall. Marvel as the sun pours through the skeletal remains of the steel dome, and wander around the adjoining tranquil riverside gardens of the Peace Memorial Park. Afterwards, stop by the towering Hiroshima Castle, which looms over arching Acer trees and still lake waters. The castle is a replica of the original building, which dated back to the 16th century. Today, it hosts an informative museum dedicated to Hiroshima’s rich pre-War history. As the afternoon rolls around, art-fiends should check out the Hiroshima Museum of Art, a modern smooth-white cylindrical structure that houses stately Romantic and Impressionist European paintings. Cap off your cultural day with a trip to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, a long and elevated cuboid building that documents the WW2 atomic bombing through personal artefacts and recorded testimonies.

Where to stay

For easy access to all of the main city sights, stay in the central Naka-ku ward. This relaxed family friendly area contains the business district and idyllic Peace Memorial Park. It’s also a local cuisine hotspot, housing some of the city’s best restaurants - make sure to try a traditional layered Okonomiyaki pancake. The area east of Naka-ku, toward Higashi, is less built-up and more laid-back, stippled with ancient shrines leafy parks. Splurging shoppers and nightlife-goers looking for a youthful, energetic area should stay west of Naka-ku in the Kamiyacho district, which boasts an abundance of boutiques and bars.
