HIROSHIMA PREFECTURE

Think of Hiroshima, and inevitably the atom bomb of August 6th 1945 comes to mind. While the prefectural capital city of Hiroshima rightly commemorates the bombing with its Genbaku Dome, Peace Park and Peace Memorial Museum, these draws are only a part of what awaits visitors to the area. The city itself is delightfully vibrant and prettily located on several rivers. Outside the city, a visit to Hatsukaichi’s Itsukishima Island to witness the spectacular sea-located red torii gate of Itsukushima Shrine is a must. The gorgeous floral vistas and bright colours of Sera are also recommended. The prefecture’s location makes it a great place to set off on a tour of the Seto Inland Sea. Why not take the biking route of Shimanami Kaido from Hiroshima to Ehime, to appreciate those famous sea views at a gentle pace?
