Located in the center of Hiroshima, Mt. Hiji at an altitude of 71 meters is popular as an art park with lush greenery. The sculptures surrounding the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Hiroshima City Manga Library, and walking paths allow you to experience a luxurious walk where you can enjoy nature and art at the same time.
In addition, the former army cemetery and the remains of the toilet hall tell us the history of Hiroshima, which should not be forgotten.
