Hiroshima

Our scrapbook notes about Hiroshima

Hiroshima is most know for the horrific bombings in 1945, when the first atomic bomb hit this city. It may be depressing to say, but this is what attracts most tourists to this city. After the war, the city was rebuilt and is very livable in today and houses over one million residents. For the backpacker, Hiroshima is worth visiting for a few days, it is a very beautiful city with a great deal of history to explore. The most popular sights to see are the Peace Memorial Park and the Peace monument.
