    I went expecting fall foliage. And in the rain a little hard, but getting up on a number of great foliage and buildings and can be very inspiring. So far withstood the bombing said, there was a Memorial. I gave up because the family thing and also a trail to Mt. mitaki, came down to listen and take two hours to the Summit and back. We gave up on it. Parking is bad timing and waited.

    If you thought all temples and shrines to have seen now, you have to make some time to train to take fifteen minutes and the Mitaki Temple visits. Very different than all what you already did, beautiful location, no man to see. Hundreds of figurines with red hats on and with real facial expressions are scattered around the complex. Perhaps the most beautiful what we saw during our 3-week tour through Japan

    Spring cherry blossoms, summer green, fall leaves are beautiful. Flows through the air like the otherworldly here only. The long stair which also followed by a road.

    The most peaceful and tranquil temple I have been to In Japan. Absolutely beautiful

    My favorite shrine in Japan and very different from all the others. Here you find the Buddha in all his forms and well as other spectacular statuary. The site in its modern iteration is designed to make you feel the pain and healing after the a-bomb. Continue to hike up the mountain behind the site for a spectacular view of the entire city. (For the best view, continue to follow the trail to the right. It's about 40 minutes to the top and some parts are a bit steep.)

    Superb. A must see if you have ANY spiritual sense.

    Quiet and beautiful. A beautiful wooded hike here next to a mountain stream.

    Great visit. A must when visiting Hiroshima. Very close to the city but feels like you are so far away. A nice 40 minute hike will take you through the property to the ridge to look down towards the city. Many statues and jizos throughout. Great in the fall for the change of leaves. Also a nice cool off in the heat of summer with the tree canopy and running water.

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.
