Drive to Hiroshima
1. Highlight: Shukkein Park
Translated, "Shukkein" means something like "shrunken landscape garden". More precisely, valleys, mountains and forests are represented here in miniature and decorated with tea houses. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere with an early lunch and then head to Hiroshima Castle.
2. Highlight: Hiroshima Castle
Atypically, this castle is not located on a hill or mountain, as is usually the case, but is in the middle of the city. It is surrounded by a moat and used to be the physical and economic center of the castle city of Hiroshima.
Option: Hiroshima Peace Museum
This museum is not a place for easy enjoyment and entertainment. It shows the unfortunately brutal reality of Hiroshima in World War II and is exclusively dedicated to the atomic bomb attack and its consequences. You dive into the stories of the victims of that time and the radiant city today, which at that time resembled more of a dystopian landscape.
