What we love
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Miyajima Island is one of the most scenic areas in Japan and is certainly one of the most beautiful places in Hiroshima. Check out the floating Itsukushima Shrine which is a spectacle in its own right.
Recognised for its resilience after the world's first atomic bomb attack in 1945, Hiroshima has not only been totally restored, but has also been transformed into a vibrant, contemporary city. It is renowned for its world class cuisine, colourful streets and spectacular landmarks as well as its unique architecture and lively nightlife. Home to over 1.1 million people, Hiroshima is the principle city of the Chugoku Region and the western part of Honshu, Japan’s main island.
Where to stay
The east side of Hiroshima is where the most well-known neighbourhoods are located, with Motomachi being just a short distance from the city's top attractions. Alternatively, hop over to Miyajima Island and stay in a Ryokan (traditional inn) for an authentic Japanese experience.

Who should visit
The city of peace is an ideal place for those who have great interest in the historical relevance of a city. We believe it is perfect for solo travellers or groups who are looking to immerse themselves in culture. Hiroshima is also a great destination for families, with neighbourhoods providing vast green space, elegant cafes and interesting shops.
When to visit
March-April is a brilliant time to visit Hiroshima, when the cherry blossom is out in force and the temperatures are pleasant. Alternatively, the autumnal months of October and November showcase the fantastic red hues of the trees as the leaves change colours with the seasons.
