In Higashi-ku, Hiroshima, there are still many cultural heritage sites, including the Fudoin Kondo, which is the city’s only national treasure.
Among them, “Futaba no Sato History Walkway” is a course that connects venerable shrines, temples, historical sites, etc. scattered between Ushida Shinmachi and Yaga Station.
In Mt. Futaba, there are walking spots such as the “Futabayama Peace Pagoda,” where you can pray for permanent peace in the world, the ruins of the flak machine gun base, and the rock of the sun. From the summit, you can see not only the city but also Miyajima floating in the Seto Inland Sea.
