When the original 16th-century structure crumbled in 1945, Hiroshima Castle was erected in its place as a historically accurate replica. The iconic castle once served as a home of the daimyo, the feudal lord of Hiroshima. The structure's modern facsimile, which shines in white with a partially wooden exterior, contains a museum dedicated to Hiroshima's history before World War II. The ninomaru (outer castle wall) consists of the castle's main gate and turrets adjoined by a warehouse. Step inside to see details of the castle's reconstruction.

  • The grounds are free to enter, and plenty of space to linger. There is a small entry fee for the castle itself, which is worth the visit. On your way up to the top, there is alot of historical objects and history to read about. Once getting to the top, there Is a great view of the city surrounding.
  • One of the iconic place to visit in Hiroshima. The side wing is open to public till Oct 22. Main castle requires ticket of less than $5. Must grab the ice cream from the shop!!! Love the Goma soy soft serve on a hot summer day. HERE:09JUL22
