Hiroshima is best known as the first city to be destroyed by a nuclear weapon. Just after the day of A-bombing, it was said that no plants would grow up for 75 years in future. However, the city recovered to be the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshu. Visiting some monuments and museum in the park shows us how precious our peaceful dairy life and the world peace are. We can learn what happend at that day and think about what we can do for the future generations. You can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in a lot of green as well.

Mie was a wonderful guide for our half day tour. She catered for the wide-range of ages in our family group and ensured we all got to see the things we wanted as well as educating us about the history of Hiroshima. Thank you Mie for a wonderful tour!
