City of Peace

Grapple with history and appreciate modernity in Hiroshima, a city known around the world for its tragic past and inspiring rebirth. First established in the 16th century, Hiroshima became famous during World War II, when the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city to arrest Japan's war operations with the Axis Powers. A tour of Hiroshima is incomplete without a visit to the memorial museum and park that detail and commemorate the horror of the bombing, as well as the flourishing city that had stood prior to it. However, today's Hiroshima also buzzes with modern cosmopolitanism and commercial success, as this coastal city thrives once again. Hiroshima's attractions include lush landscaped gardens, a burgeoning nightlife, and excellent cuisine. Add Hiroshima and other Japan destinations to your travel plans using our Japan tour planner .

Where to stay in Hiroshima

The majority of places to stay in Hiroshima concentrate in the areas surrounding the train station, the memorial museum and park, and a couple of main boulevards. Here you can find basic, comfortable, and clean hostels, dozens of mid-range business hotels, and a couple of pricier four- and five-star international chains, all of which offer easy access to any of the sights in this compact city. For an adventurous and very affordable overnight stay in Hiroshima, you can even sleep in private pods attached to the train station's south side.
