Hiroshima Hiroshima, Japan
Hiroshima is positioned on the coast of the Seto Inland Sea and is an industrial city made up of many zigzagging rivers and wide boulevard streets. Today Hiroshima is a modern and vibrant city with great food and an energetic nightlife, but the image that remains in most visitor's minds is the Hiroshima of 1945 when it became the horrific sight of the first atomic bomb attack. Hiroshima shares the colorful neon atmosphere of other major Japanese cities and its hard to recognize the city immortalized all those years ago on that fateful day.

Hiroshima's climate is humid subtropical. The winters are mild and the summers are hot and humid. August is usually the hottest month of the year. Rain can occur at any time of the year, but winter is usually the driest season. June and July usually have the most rain. The best time to visit is in October and November when there isn't as much rain and the temperatures are pleasant. If you're in town during the summer months, air conditioning is a must.
Peace Memorial Park is where you'll find most of the memorials relating to the atomic bomb. This area was destroyed by the bomb and there are now more than 50 memorials, statues, and structures in the park. It's a heartbreaking place to visit, but should not be missed during your time in Hiroshima. There's also a museum that educates the visitor on the events of that day, the damage, and the long term effects. Outside of the park there are several other museums that offer information on other aspects of that day. You should consider visiting Honkawa Elementary School Peace Museum, which tells of the school that was destroyed and those that lost their lives. Only one teacher and one student survived that day. Fukuro-machi Elementary School Museum is a comparable museum.

Chuo Park is a large green space in the middle of the city. In the area you'll find Hiroshima Castle, Gokoku Shrine, the Hiroshima Children's Museum, and the Hiroshima Museum of Art.

The other districts are Aki-ku, Asakita-ku, and Saeki-ku.

It's quite delicious and an experience that you must have while you're in Hiroshima.
