CITY GUIDE: Hiroshima City (広島市)


Famous as the first city in the history to be targeted by nuclear weapon on the August 6, 1945 at 8:15 a.m, Hiroshima City has never been the same again. Having being proclaimed as a ‘City of Peace’ in 1949, the city name is synonymous for peace and safety and is highly sought-after as a destination for international conferences centering around peace and social issues.

Streetcars are a popular transportation system, largely due to its significance in the restoration process of Hiroshima after the atomic blast in 1945. Within 3 days, some parts of the streetcars were already running, highlighting the great and cohesive Japanese spirit of being considerate to one another.

With every changing season, be it Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, there is always something interesting in Hiroshima. Visit Hiroshima and experience the beauty of Japan in a different way.
