Bridges · Castles · Gardens
The castle town of Iwakuni has an interesting and varied history populated by samurai warriors and U.S. military personnel. The feudal era saw the construction of the town's castle, and many of the main attractions of Iwakuni hinge around the rebuilt citadel, including samurai areas and landmarks. The blossom trees in the parks make Iwakuni a popular day trip from Hiroshima, when seasonal displays add a counterpoint to the city's status as a large U.S. military base. When using our Japan trip itinerary site to make an itinerary online, Iwakuni holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Iwakuni

The town of Iwakuni has a decent collection of accommodations. Look close to the train station for the main bulk, where high-rise hotels offer a convenient location for businesspeople arriving in town. Few international tourists choose to stay in Iwakuni overnight, so you won't find much variety here. Instead, visitors tend to make a day trip to Iwakuni for the samurai bridge, castle, and cherry blossoms, then return to Hiroshima, some 45 minutes away by train.
