Hiroshima is situated in the southwestern region of the Japanese archipelago and enjoys warm weather amid the rich natural surroundings of the Seto Inland Sea and the Chugoku region mountain ranges.
 Rich Natural Surroundings
Hiroshima Prefecture has all the typical features of Japan's landscape: mountains, sea, islands, valleys, plains and plateaus.
Climate-wise, there are regions in Hiroshima that are as cold as the northern part of Japan and at the same time, regions that are as warm as the southern part of Japan. This is why Hiroshima is seen as representative of the entire nation.
The islands large and small in the Seto Sea are particularly a picturesque sight, and well worth visiting.

 Two World Heritages
The Atomic Bomb Dome
The Atomic Bomb Dome
At 8:15 a.m. in the morning of August 6, 1945, the atomic bomb exploded 580 meters above ground approximately 160 meters south-east of the dome.
The building was blown to pieces and totally burned out.
In 1966 it was decided that the dome be preserved as a monument for peace and as a reminder of the tragedy of nuclear weapons.

Itsukushima Shrin
Itsukushima Shrin
The shrine pavilion is an authentic archetype of Heian Period architecture and has been designated as a national treasure.
Built in 593. It was renovated to its current splendor in 1168. The main hall of the shrine is furnished with vermillion-lacquered columns and Japanese cypress bark roofing.
As the tide rises in the cove, the corridors appear as if they are floating over the sea - a stunning sight.
The shrine is also the venue of numerous traditional ceremonies.

 Food
Hiroshima's food culture has been built on plentiful fresh seafood and locally-brewed Sake.
In particular, oysters have been farmed here for around 450 years and they are the typical marine product of Hiroshima.
 Food

 It is our sincere wish that people from across the world visit Hiroshima.
