Visit Hiroshima Prefecture


The Hiroshima Prefecture is located in the Chugoku region of Japan and is known for its rich culture, beautiful landscapes, and historical significance. The prefecture's capital city is also named Hiroshima and was the site of the first atomic bombing in 1945. The grand Peace Memorial Park serves as a reminder of this tragic event and has become an important tourist destination for those interested in learning about World War II history.

Aside from its dark past, the region has plenty to offer visitors looking to explore Japanese culture. Miyajima Island is one such location, home to thousands of wild deer that freely roam around sites like Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Daisho-in Temple is another tourist favorite with stunning views across the Seto Inland Sea.

Hiroshima's culinary scene should not be overlooked either; it's famous for dishes like okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake) and oysters grilled over hot charcoal which can be found in restaurants throughout Hiroshima city center. For something unique, head to Hijiyama Hill at night - it's home to an incredible firefly display that lights up the sky during summer months!
