Hiroshima is the principal city of the Chugoku Region and home to over a million inhabitants. When the first atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the city became known worldwide for this unenviable distinction. The destructive power of the bomb was tremendous and obliterated nearly everything within a two kilometer radius. After the war, great efforts were taken to rebuild the city. Predictions that the city would be uninhabitable proved false. Destroyed monuments of Hiroshima's historical heritage, like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkeien Garden, were reconstructed. In the center of the city a large park was built and given a name that would reflect the aspirations of the re-born city: Peace Memorial Park. Hiroshima is most famous for its a-Bomb Dome.

I cannot say enough about our beautiful trip to Japan! Our travel planner, Scott from Experience Japan Travel that Zicasso set us up with, put together a perfec, stress free itinerary. My husband and I wanted to make the most of our quick trip to Japan, and the Japanese guides our planner set us up with were lovely and allowed us to experience more of Japan then we ever could have on our own. The cherry blossoms everywhere were dreamy! The blossoms in Nara and Gion were particularly beautiful! Scott set us up in beautiful accommodations, and their locations allowed us to explore the surrounding area with ease. My husband and I are so grateful for all that we got to see, eat, and experience on our trip. If I could take the trip again, I would take more time at each location even if that meant we saw a few less sights.... READ MORE
