Introducing Hiroshima & Around
A busy, prosperous, attractive city, Hiroshima will be remembered for that terrible instant on 6 August 1945 when it became the world’s first atomic-bomb target. Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park is a constant reminder of that tragic day and it attracts visitors from all over the world. Yet Hiroshima is a far from depressing place; on the contrary, its citizens have recovered from nuclear holocaust to build a thriving and internationally minded community.
The city dates back to 1589, when feudal lord Mōri Terumoto named the town and established a castle.
