Hiroshima Holidays

City of Peace

Although most famous for one moment in history; on the 6th August 1945 Hiroshima became the first target of an atomic bomb which destroyed the city - today it has rebuilt itself as one of Japan's most laidback, vibrant cities full of friendly welcoming people, great food and a thriving art scene.

Why not twin your visit to Hiroshima with the intoxicating capital of Japan, Tokyo or the historic and charming city of Kyoto? It's easy to get around by high speed bullet train and combine several cities in one holiday.

Destination Highlights
  • Peace Memorial Park
  • Itsukushima Island Shrine
