Hiroshima General: 59 reviews and 93 photos
Favorite thing: At the time of construction in 1589, <font color=red> <b>Hiroshima Castle</font> </b> was the largest in western Japan, occupying an area many times its present size. Know as the 'carp castle', it was built by the feudal lord Terumoto Mori. In 1931, the castle was designated as a national treasure. After its destruction in the atomic bomb blast of 1945, it was reconstructed as it stands today. Now a museum, its inner rooms convey a realistic feeling of Hiroshima's history.
