A vibrant, wealthy and happy-go-lucky metropolis, Hiroshima is best known as the first city in the world to feel the power of the atomic bomb on August 6, 1945. Emerging from the ashes a cosmopolitan and peaceful place, it sits on the coast of the Inland Sea, and is the gateway to a number of beautiful islands, including Miyajima with its famous, water-bound torri gate. At Hiroshima’s heart is the immense and tranquil Peace Park, the perfect place to learn about and reflect on the past, before enjoying a city that looks towards an even brighter future.
