Hatsukaichi

(3.6/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, historic sites, sightseeing
The city of Hatsukaichi developed from a small market town, frequented by passing samurais during the Edo period. The market that developed still runs to this day, and the whole city is now known for its fresh vegetables and woodwork trinkets, ornaments, and art. Thanks to the scenic coastal position and the mountainous terrain of the interior, trips to Hatsukaichi tend to be outdoor-oriented, with seasonal activities include hiking, blossom viewing, and boating. Shrines and temples blessed with rich histories and striking designs add a layer of historical intrigue and spiritual exploration to Hatsukaichi itineraries. Make your own Hatsukaichi vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Japan family vacation planner.

Where to stay in Hatsukaichi

With its historic temples and shrines, scenic coastal areas, and wealth of inland trekking potential, Hatsukaichi has a number of accommodations to complement the vast array available in neighboring Hiroshima. Many visitors do decide to stay in the larger city to the east, but if you're particularly set on staying in Hatsukaichi, you won't be disappointed by the choice. Look close to the sea for the more upmarket rooms offering views of the bay, and on some of the narrower side streets for budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The same goes for the island just offshore. With its shrine and history, many choose to stay on Itsukushima, close to the Miyajima shrine.
