  • I went to visit the Hiroshima Castle and found this sacred temple that is on the same grounds of the castle which is very nice because it is surrounded by a moat and has a beautiful entrance portal. This shrine was destroyed by nuclear bomb in 1945 and rebuilt in this ground in 1965 with help of donations from the citizens of the city. Is one of the city's most popular places for sacred celebrations.

  • Stumbled upon the shrine when we just followed people around the castle grounds thinking they were heading to the castle. It is quite a large shrine and it has a statue of the koi, which is interesting.
  • Great spot for a photo late in the afternoon as the sun sets.
  • In a nice park and is quite beautiful itself
  • Really cool shrine, very beautiful!
  • Not very special. Near the castle.

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.
