    Hiroshima Things to Do

    This memorial was designed by Kenzo Tange and it is from 1952. The shape resembles an ancient arch-shaped house and it is said to give shelter to the lost souls. Here in a stone chest in the middle are the names of all the A-bomb victims regardless of nationality. Their number is over 290 000 and still increasing because more names are added when a...

  • Okonomi-mura

    4 out of 5 stars

    Hiroshima Restaurants

    Okonomiyaki is like a thin pancake, with cabbage, ginger, noodles, egg and a host of other things to choose from. You’ll find no better place to sample okonomiyaki than in Hiroshima. Okonomi-mura has 3 floors of okonomiyaki restaurants packed into one place and you can’t wrong with any of them. You won’t be sorry for going there! If you’re like me,...

    Miyajima Things to Do

    The Noh Stage at Itsukushima stands in the water near the western side of the shrine. The first No stafe was constructed in 1605, and the current stage was built in 1640. This is one of the few buildings that has never been painted. On this stage there are several events including the Peach Blossom Festival in April and a tea offering ceremony...

  • Ferry to Miya Jima

    Miyajima Transportation

    If you have a JR Rail Pass, you can take the ferry over to the island using the pass.It's not a particularly long ride and is usually filled by day trippers who are heading to the island for a visit. So far as I know, it's the only way to get to the island.

  • Tides at Miyajima matter

    Miyajima Things to Do

    I have heard different opinions on high versus low tide, daytime versus evening for the best views of the floating torii at Miyajima. Possibly it is a matter of personal preference, however, many people might not be able to choose when they visit, but if also doing the Hiroshima Peace Park and museum, consult the tide information for what you might...

  • Mt Senkoji Ropeway

    Onomichi Things to Do

    When in Onomichi, I definitely recommend taking the ropeway up the hill to Senkoji temple. From there you get a great view of the Seto Inland sea, and neighbouring Mukaijima Island. There is an observation building at the top as well as the various buildings that make up Senkoji.Mind you though, it is possible to walk up as well, although most...

  • Ramen Noodles

    Onomichi Restaurants

    Onomichi Ramen seems to be very popular as evidenced by the queues waiting to eat at the various noodle shops in town. There is even a 'ramen map' which shows were the various shops are located.We waited for around 20 minutes to get into this one, and it was worth the wait. Not expensive either, good value. This one in particular is right near the...

    Fukuyama Castle was built in 1622. The castle almost survived World War II but was destroyed on August 8, 1945, two days after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and one day before Nagasaki.

    Kure Things to Do

    Irifuneyama Park is really not a park; it's where the former Naval Headquarters is located along with related buildings that have been moved here. Two of the sites are just outside the entrance to the memorial park, the home of Admiral Togo during his time as the Naval commander and the clock tower from the Navy's engineering department built in...
