  • I went to the home. Entrance fee parking 450 yen, 4 1 is the front entrance and parking lot. The second and the third is a little walk. Fourth is quite far away, free of charge, essentially will be directed in order from the first. Because the comparison is always going to the Ueno Zoo, entertained, but very wide Rhinoceros giraffes, zebras, elephants, were exhibited in the space. Plus the mandrills, gorillas are not personally a bit negative. There is a large park in the excursion of pupils and students were playing.

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.
