Hiroshima Castle, Hiroshima

(3.4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
When the original 16th-century structure crumbled in 1945, Hiroshima Castle was erected in its place as a historically accurate replica. The iconic castle once served as a home of the daimyo, the feudal lord of Hiroshima. The structure's modern facsimile, which shines in white with a partially wooden exterior, contains a museum dedicated to Hiroshima's history before World War II. The ninomaru (outer castle wall) consists of the castle's main gate and turrets adjoined by a warehouse. Step inside to see details of the castle's reconstruction.

  • 廣島城天守閣現為歷史文物博物館,內部陳列展示廣島的發展及武士家族的文化資料。有照片及影片簡述廣島從遠古到廣島城的歷史。還有依照實際的尺寸製作的房舍模型展、刀劍類展覽室等等,頂樓則是瞭望台, 有紀念幣機、刻字機,更有找換機方便沒有硬幤的遊客。最好玩則是有盔甲和武士及貴婦服裝可供免費穿著拍照, 有詳細圖片說明, 照著做不會不識穿。入場費370日元, 抵玩。

  • A short walk or you can take the tourist bus to the castle. The castle is beautiful to take pictures of. From the top level you have a good view of the city. Visit on a clear day.

  • Very cool castle. The grounds are a little on the small side. It's way to explore in a short amount of time. Well worth the trip!
  • I thought that this was actually a pretty good museum with a lot of interesting information. We went up to the top for sunset and the views were great.
  • It has a nice little park, depending on the time of year, with the reconstructed castle citadel. It has a nice museum inside on how it looked back in the 1600's and how they rebuilt it. The shrine is nearby as well as some of the outer wall and defensive buidlings, rebuilt of course. The Ninomaru building and gate area also has some neat pictures and models of the buildings that were once there.
  • Nice place to spend about 1-2 hours. Good view on the city from the top level of the castle. We had a good time there!
  • Great view of the city. Some very interesting items of history associated with the castle inside. Don't forget to collect the stamp on the top level. Also good for a peaceful walk around the grounds, look out for the fish and turtles.
