[ “Hiroshima Castle” @ Hiroshima ]

Hiroshima Castle

“Hiroshima Castle” is one of the Japan’s top 100 Castles.
“Hiroshima Castle” was built in Azuchi-Momoyama era. But it was lost by atom bomb. So, present “Hiroshima Castle” was rebuilt.

“Hiroshima Castle” is hard to receive an attack from the outside. When you enter the site and walk for a while, at last you see the castle tower. You can see a great castle!

When I went to “Hiroshima Castle”, many tourist from foreign countries went to this place, too.

In the castle tower, there is the counter of experiencing. You can wear the kimonos and take the pictures.
There is the souvenir shop, and a military commander-related product is sold. A sword and the armor are displayed, so you can feel the old times.

Also there is “Gokoku-Jinja” (Gokoku shrine), you can see castle and shrine at the same time.
I recommend it!
