City of Peace
Grapple with history and appreciate modernity in Hiroshima, a city known around the world for its tragic past and inspiring rebirth. First established in the 16th century, Hiroshima became famous during World War II, when the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city to arrest Japan's war operations with the Axis Powers. A tour of Hiroshima is incomplete without a visit to the memorial museum and park that detail and commemorate the horror of the bombing, as well as the flourishing city that had stood prior to it. However, today's Hiroshima also buzzes with modern cosmopolitanism and commercial success, as this coastal city thrives once again. Hiroshima's attractions include lush landscaped gardens, a burgeoning nightlife, and excellent cuisine. Hiroshima is in Hiroshima Prefecture.
