Travel Tips for Hiroshima

Mitaki Temple . This...

by ErnieGal

Mitaki Temple . This absolutely beautiful, magical spot is a real must for anyone who visits Hiroshima, particularly in the fall, when the already charming atomosphere is enhanced by the flaming yellow and fiery red autumn colors. Poets, painters and photographers often come to capture the beauty of the flora, waterfalls and the Tahoto Pagoda. Here and there can be seen the small Jizo (stone statues) and monuments lining the paths, and one can stop for respite in the inviting little tea house.

Genbaku-Dome (Atomic Bomb Memorial Tower)

by AyurinHiro

Genbaku-Dome(Atomic Bomb Memorial Tower) is one of the UNESCO's World Heritage.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki are only two places in the world, which experienced the atomic bomb... (Hiroshima was bombed on August 6 1945, and Nagasaki was on August 9.)

They have recoverd already, but we have to remember the war...
This dome is the only one building that survived the atomic bomb.

The sound of peace

by Zirpsis

The Hiroshima Peace Bell can be found in the Peace Memorial Park near the T-shaped Aioi-bashi Bridge. It was erected in hope for a better world without nuclear arms and free of war. On it's surface, there's the world map without national boundaries thus symbolizing "one world". The Peace Bell was selected in 1996 for the Environmental Agency's "One Hundred Sounds the Japanese People Wish to Preserve."

It was an exciting experience to ring this bell. For what it's worth, I've done my best for the world peace now.

Peace Memorial Park

by dancinbudgie

We almost didn't go to Hiroshima, (I think I was too cowardly to face such sadness), but at the last minute we changed our minds and are so glad that we did. I think that anyone who gets the opportunity to go there should take advantage of it. It was very sobering to reflect upon the cruelty that humans can inflict upon one another, and as long as people do take the time to think on these matters, there will be less chance of it ever happening again. Having said that, Hiroshima is not a depressing place at all...rather, it is uplifting to see the depths from which a people can overcome! The city itself is beautiful, and the people are very friendly towards foreigners, which I would not have expected.

My children were particularly taken with the Children's Peace Monument. They were moved ny the story of the sick little girl who believed that if she could make 1000 paper cranes (The japanese symbol of longevity and hapiness) , that she would get better. She never did recover, and now school children from all over Japan keep the monument supplied with paper cranes in her honor.

Kosanji in Setoda

by GenkiMac

"Kosanji Temple"

This temple is the work of a Buddhist priest who spent more than 80 years building it as a dedication to his deceased mother. It was started in 1836 and finished in the early 1900's.
The entrance has a wonderful gate which is brightly coloured and is a full scale replica of the famous Nikko gate(I don't actually know what or where this is!). If you know anything about architecture this temple is also said to show the history of Buddhist Architecture.

"The other side...."

Apart from all the serious historical interest it is worth a visit for the colours, the way it is laid out on the hillside, the lovely flowers and gardens and of course the tunnel which has grotesque pictures of people being mutilated in a type of hell I guess. Apart from the pictures it is an interesting walk underground with statues and ponds and bridges.

"The wee paradise on the hill.."

This really is a strange place and a wee bit out of place as it looks like something from the Mediterranean. It's a relaxing place to sit and look at the view as long as the sun isn't too bright or you will blind yourself! Theres a cafe here with a big picture window to sit and look at the Seto Inland Sea and there are tables outside (which is actually quite rare in Japan). It makes an interesting finish to a temple visit!
