No discussion of Hiroshima is complete without mentioning Miyajima, one the three famous views of Japan.
Enjoy a variety of beautiful scenery that includes Itsukushima Shrine, known for its torii gate floating in the sea, and the view of the Seto Inland Sea from Mt. Misen, the highest peak on the island.
Staying at a ryokan with rooms that overlook Miyajima also has its own charm and is recommended.
Hiroshima has many places to see, such as the alluring historical streets of Onomichi and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
Cycling along the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Route, the only route in Japan that takes you across a strait, is popular with many cyclists from abroad.
Hiroshima also offers a variety of popular cuisine that includes Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, local oysters, and “shiru-nashi tantanmen” soup-less noodles.
