Hiroshima Castle, Hiroshima

3.6
When the original 16th-century structure crumbled in 1945, Hiroshima Castle was erected in its place as a historically accurate replica. The iconic castle once served as a home of the daimyo, the feudal lord of Hiroshima. The structure's modern facsimile, which shines in white with a partially wooden exterior, contains a museum dedicated to Hiroshima's history before World War II. The ninomaru (outer castle wall) consists of the castle's main gate and turrets adjoined by a warehouse. Step inside to see details of the castle's reconstruction.

  • Built in 1589 by Mohri Terumoto. It was destroyed by the atomic bomb, but the castle tower restored its appearance. The two circles are also restored. Armor and swords are displayed inside the honmaru. If you climb to The Tengu, you can see Hiroshima City. It is one of 100 castles in Japan. There is also a sightseeing boat around the moat. You can also get a 30-division ticket for the municipal parking lot.

  • The hotel was very close to the hotel. I didn't know it from the appearance, but it's made of concrete by putting it in shoes (it's like Nagoya Castle) and there are places inside where you can lift a sword. Besides, it was heavy, of course, there is a sword inside the transparent case with chains.

  • The area surrounding the castle is very beautiful, although quite small. The castle is stunningly pretty and is a reconstruction of the original, now turned museum. It consists of 5 levels, only the first two floors are in English and the rest is in Japanese. The steps are super steep. Costing an adult 370 yen to enter, the view from the top is pretty nice.
  • Nice place to visit but it didn’t take my breath away. In the surrounding ponds you can see beautiful colourful carps and swimming turtles. There are facilities to buy some food and feed fish at the premises.
