  • It is a shrine of the war memorial which stands in Hiroshima Castle. If it is a new transportation, it is near the middle of the castle north and the prefectural office, but the castle north seems to be near. The grounds of the castle are large, but I thought that it was smaller than other prefectures as a gokoku shrine. The torii and the shrine are splendid.

  • Because it stands next to Hiroshima Castle, it seems to be good when going together. It is easy to visit because there are not so many people at other times though it is very often when going to New Year's Day.

  • On the left side of the main shrine, there is a statue of the twin poles and a statue of The Rising Rose on the right. It is said that the "Carp" of the Hiroshima Carp of professional baseball was named after the castle (also known as Hiroshima Castle), but the statue of the samurai was very good because it was like Hiroshima. With a wish, it seems to be profitable when you sit this axe, and the part of the head is shiny. I've been boiling both statues. When you visit Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine, don't forget the statue of Sogo and the statue of Shoto.
