Travelling to Hiroshima from Osaka couldn’t be easier thanks to the top-notch Japanese infrastructure. All you need is your Japan Rail Pass and a spirit of adventure. Many want to visit Hiroshima to see the Genbaku Atomic Dome, Hiroshima Peace Park and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Hiroshima is well known for being the place of the world’s first nuclear bombing. However, Hiroshima has risen from its ashes, now being a vibrant city with unique sites, its own delicious dishes and many cultural attractions.
Tourists usually visit Hiroshima from Osaka as a day trip. We recommend spending a couple of days at least, to sample as much of the local food as possible and to be able to dedicate some time exploring Miyajima, which can be easily accessed from Hiroshima.
