Lieux Historiques

Hiroshima offre plusieurs endroits historiques. Le château de Hiroshima se situe au centre de Hiroshima. Vous pouvez voir la vieille ville qui a été construite à l'époque d'Edo à Tomonoura, dans la ville de Fukuyama, et à Takehara, mais à Hiroshima même il y a peu de vieux bâtiments, de nombreux ayant été détruits par la bombe atomique. Cependant, certains se montrent encore solides — par exemple, la vieille succursale de la Banque du Japon de Hiroshima, la Maison de repos, etc. Autour du parc du Mémorial de la Paix, vous pouvez voir de nombreuses statues en mémoire des victimes de la bombe atomique. La ville toute entière devient comme un livre d'histoire de Hiroshima.
