  • Not the most impressive but nice enough. If you're not fit or have trouble going up or down stairs or hills, this is not the place to visit. Very close to the train station, maybe not walking distance but only a couple of 4 or 5 minutes by taxi. I'd rather take a few hours and go to Mitaki Shrine than here.

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.
