Hiroshima evokes powerful images and emotions attached to its war-torn past. Yet today, Hiroshima has emerged as a symbol of peace, beauty, and hope, and is a friendly, global city, with modern infrastructure, tree-lined avenues and rivers. A fair share of signature ferroconcrete, neon and bling, typical of modern Japan, vies for your attention as does much of the restored landmarks. Visit the rebuilt Shukkeien Garden, Hiroshima Castle, the iconic Peace Memorial Park and its museum, for a poignant reminder of history. Satiate your yen for good food at the many local restaurants and street stalls serving Hiroshima style delicacies, such as Okonomiyaki.
