A fantastic landscape spreads
We will introduce light up and night view spots where you can see different expressions from daytime. Why don’t you go out to see the spectacular view at night, which is a perfect end to your sightseeing in Hiroshima?
[Miyajima] “Itsukushima Shrine” at night, which is a bit different from daytime
The shrine is lit up every day
At Itsukushima Shrine, the shrine is lit up every day from sunset until around 11:00 p.m. With a solemn impression that is different from the splendid appearance during the day, the shrine illuminated by light is reflected on the surface of the sea, and the whole area is wrapped in a mysterious atmosphere. Not only Itsukushima Shrine, but also the five-story pagoda and the Tahoto pagoda are lit up. Stay on the island and take a tour.
[Access] About 15 minutes on foot from Miyajima Pier (to Miyajima Pier: About 3 minutes on foot from JR Miyajimaguchi Station and change to the ferry at Miyajimaguchi Pier about 10 minutes)
[Hiroshima] “Ryuo Park” Where You Can See the Night View of the City of Hiroshima
Enjoy the night view from the top of a small hill
A general park with tennis courts, a baseball field, and an open space. It is a park built using a slope, and you can see the night view of the center of Hiroshima from the top of a small hill. We recommend weekday evenings when the building lights up. Spring is also known as a famous spot for cherry blossoms.
[Access] About 15 minutes by taxi from JR Hiroshima Station (since it is the center of the city, they will come right away if you call a taxi on the way back)
[Hiroshima] “Mariho Digital Art Road” where the promenade is wrapped in light art
Stroll along the seaside promenade colored by mapping
“Marina Hop” is a complex consisting of an aquarium and a shopping mall. The 160m promenade facing the yacht harbor is illuminated by projection mapping at night. The light show for about 10 minutes changes depending on the season and time of day, and it is attractive that you can enjoy it whenever you visit. It is held every 20 to 30 minutes after sunset, and is held all year round. Why don’t you come and visit us?
[Access] Take Hiroden Bus Line 3 from JR Hiroshima Station and get off at Kannon Marina Hop for about 40 minutes, then a short walk from Kannon Marina Hop
[Onomichi] Artistically illuminated temples in Onomichi
New fun in Onomichi at night
Onomichi, which is known as a temple town, is lit up at night at Saikokuji Temple and Jikoji Temple. It was created by world-renowned lighting designer Motoko Ishii, and LED lighting illuminates temples and shrines fantastically. The lighting time is from sunset to around 22:00. You can fully enjoy Onomichi, which has a different look from the daytime.
[Access] Depends on the temple (to Saikokuji: about 25 minutes on foot from JR Onomichi Station, to Jikoji: about 5 minutes on foot from JR Onomichi Station)
【Fukuyama】Stroll through “Tomonoura” at night
A nightlight that lights up an emotional light
Tomonoura once prospered as a port waiting for the tide. Of course, you can go sightseeing during the day when cafes and shops are open, but we also recommend taking a walk around Tomonoura, which is dyed in the sunset. The nightlight, which is the symbol of the city, lights up with the sunset, creating an emotional atmosphere. Coupled with the Seto Inland Sea dyed in red red, the scenery of the tasteful port town spreads out.
[Access] About 30 minutes by Tomotetsu Bus from JR Fukuyama Ekimae, about 5 minutes on foot from Tomoko bus stop (Tomoko → Fukuyama-ekimae bus ends at 21:18 on weekdays)
[Hiroshima] Enjoy the night view of the city of Hiroshima with a panoramic view at “Orizuru Tower” where you can enjoy the collaboration of architectural beauty and night view
It is a landmark tower designed by architect Hiroshi Sanbuichi, and you can enjoy a digital experience based on paper cranes in the museum. The rooftop is an observation space with an open wooden deck, and you can look down on the revived townscape of Hiroshima. Seasonal light ups and events that make use of the space such as “ROOF TOP BAR” are also held. Why don’t you spend a special time in a fantastic space?
