An essential point to get to know modern Hiroshima!

The red brick humanities museum, which focuses on the traditional local industry of Hiroshima, is a preservation of a part of the former Army Food Branch, which 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 in the Meiji era that remains in the city and has excellent architectural technology and design. Not only the local industry, but also the history of Ujina-dori Port and Hiroshima, people's lives, etc. are exhibited. You can see old-fashioned riverboats and seagulls.
