Places to stay

There are plenty of different accommodation options in Hiroshima. A compact city, you’ll never find yourself too far away from the city’s main attractions. Various accommodation can be found around the station, the Peace Park and Aioi-dōri and Heiwa-Ōdōri thoroughfares. For an authentic experience stay in a traditional Japanese Inn or Ryokan. The experience usually involves a traditional meal and sleeping on a futon spread on the floor.

If you’re after that hotel slippers and robe experience, opt for one of the many western styled hotels scattered throughout the city. For travellers on a budget, hostels and Minshuku B&Bs can be found all over the city.

Things to do

From outdoor activities to museums and shopping, there’s a range of things to do in Hiroshima. Hit the road and cycle the famous Shimanami Kaido expressway, a popular track for cyclists on the weekend.

Visit Hiroshima Castle and get a sense of the city before the bomb was dropped in 1945. Like many other historic sites around Hiroshima, the castle was wiped out by the atomic bomb, leaving just fragments of the original site. Now, Hiroshima has worked to restore the castle to its original grandeur. Visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Peace Memorial Park, that's located in what was once the city's busiest downtown commercial and residential district. 

Enjoy a cruise to picturesque Miyajina Island, a short boat ride from the mainland port. Take in the scenic green forests and temples, it an ideal outdoor activity in Autumn.
