Travel Tips for Hiroshima

Go to Miyajima island! It's...

by luciano

Go to Miyajima island! It's the most beautiful place I've visited in Japan, and I've been to many places. From Hiroshima it's 1/2 hour by train and then a brief crossing by ferry. See the travelogue!

Any Okonomiyaki shop in...

by GenkiMac

Any Okonomiyaki shop in Hiroshima. Okonomiyaki means anything you like barbequed. It is a mix btween a pancake and an omelette with vegetables and your choice of pork, seafood, cheese etc. Okonomiyaki is done differently everywhere in Japan and one of Hiroshima's specialities is the way they do theirs. It has noodles in it which you can choose from thin or fat(soba or udon) and is wonderful. The sauce is what makes it so delicious so make sure you have a bottle so you can add more for yourself.

Take a train to Miyajima (Shrine Island)

by KevinMichael

Ranked as one of Japan's 3 most beautiful places, Miyajima is just an hour away via train from Hiroshima.
Any who visit Hiroshima should not want to miss the opportunity to see it. Give yourself at least half a day to see it and it is best to go in the morning so that you'll have plenty of time.

The main thing to see in Miyajima is Itsukushima Shrine and the Gate of Itsukushima Shrine (Torii).

Miyajima

by pure1942

Just a short train and ferry ride from Hiroshima is one of Japan’s most sacred temple complexes. Miyajima is one of Honshu’s most popular tourist attractions and every visitor is rewarded with an amazing experience. Expecting huge crowds of tourists, I was pleasantly surprised by the tranquillity of Miyajima. This was probably helped by the less than favourable foggy weather and ridiculously early time of arrival that we chose!

The island itself lies off the Sanyo coast and as well as the magnificent temple complex, the island is a walker’s paradise with several trails leading up into the central hills past tiered pagodas, grazing deer and pristine wooded landscapes – the felling of trees is forbidden on Miyajima. The island has no cemeteries or maternity facilities as nobody is allowed to give birth or die on the island...how this is enforced I’m not quite sure!

For all the beauty, peace and magnificence present on the island itself, it is what lies just off shore that grabs the headlines. Proclaimed as one of Japan’s three most scenic views, the floating torii of Itsukushima, is a must see for any visitor to the region.

There's more to Hiroshima than radiation!

by GenkiMac

In the 21st century, Hiroshima intends to sour to new heights as a city of humanity. We intend to create a spiritual home for all people, a home with compasssion, a source of creativity and energy for our planet's children and youth, a city offering a personal place of rest and comfort for all, young or old, male and female."
Words by Tadatoshi Akiba, mayor of Hiroshima,
August 6th, 2001

Just as Sadako Sasaki folded her paper cranes one by one for peace, we must work continuallly to solve our own problems, one by one. We must create small havens of peace around us, bound by strong threads of empathy and mutual understanding. We must deepen these bonds with friends throughout the world, sustaining courage and creating te desire for peace."
Words by childrens representatives Yasunori Hatakeyama (6th grade) and Yuka Fujimori (6th grade).
6th August, 2001.
First Peace Memorial Day of the 21st century.

I had never thought much before about where I live but since making sites on VT it has had the effect of making me want to explore and analyse and see the good in things that are easily taken for granted (as a traveller does in comparison to someone who lives there and sees the attractions everyday). I think the peace museum in Hiroshima is so well done and so important and yet I didn't have any photos of that or the park and until now I haven't thought about or wanted to convey it's importance to anyone. The best thing about the museum is that it makes you realise how much Hiroshima as a city believes in making sure that no one anywhere in the world experiences what they did ever again. There are hundreds of letters on display by mayors from years back begging the leaders of Nuclear testing countries to think about how much life means and what we should all have learnt from Hiroshima. VT has made me want to go out again and see everything I took for granted the first time so I can share the history and thoughts of Japan with those who don't have the same chance I have- not to mention never leaving home without my camera again!
