An essential point to get to know modern Hiroshima!

The red-brick humanities museum, which focuses on Hiroshima's traditional local industries, is part of the former army grain depot that was built in 1911. It is designated as an important tangible cultural property of Hiroshima City because it is one of the few modern Western-style buildings of the Meiji era that remains in the city, and its architectural technology and design are excellent. Not only local industries, but also the history of Ujina Port, Hiroshima, and people's lives are exhibited. You can see nostalgic river boats and kamoji. 《About A-bombed Buildings》 In 1897 (Meiji 30), the Rikugun Ryomatsushisho Ujina Branch was established.
