Hiroshima Castle was built by Terumoto Mori about 420 years ago, but it has carved the history of Hiroshima as a castle town, as a military capital, and a symbol of reconstruction from the atomic bomb.
Let's trace the history of Hiroshima from the time the castle was built to the present.
Our last place to visit, Shukkeien, is the garden of Hiroshima's Asano family, and fascinates visitors beautifully throughout the four seasons.
