  • A beautiful gallery. There’s 4 halls with a lot of name artworks. Very quiet and tranquil. They have amazing socks in the gift store! A little confusing whether photographs can be taken or not (one sign says no flash, the other says no camera...)
  • It has 4 hall showcases. And every second Saturday, It is organising music concert.

  • It is a relatively small collection but it has a good variety of pieces including a Dali. Also has an absolutely gorgeous garden.

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.
