Japan’s Hiroshima Prefecture has a lot to offer, but since it is a bit far from the more popular travel destinations like Tokyo and Osaka, it is often overlooked. Despite this, it is still a place worth visiting even just for a quick trip. If you want to see as many amazing spots in Hiroshima as you can in a short period of time, here’s a list of must-see places!
1. The Atomic Bomb area
Of course, your first destination should be the famous Atomic Bomb Dome! It is the building that survived complete destruction, near the hypocenter of the nuclear bomb dropped by the USA in the Second World War. Looking at this dome will make you feel a bit gloomy as if you can feel the pain of the city, their sufferings will slowly engulf you, and it will make you realize how hard life is when there is war and how lucky you are. Just across the dome is the Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound where the ashes of the bombing victims are.
