Hiroshima Region

It's easy to beeline it to Miyajima for a glance at the floating torii gate, or to Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park to witness how locals have transformed an infamous tragedy into a firm call for peace.

Yet there are other quiet wonders worth exploring in the region around Hiroshima. Stroll narrow cobbled streets in the seaside town of Tomo-no-ura, go temple hunting in Onomichi, sip sake at one of many breweries in Saijō, and save some time for reflection in an ancient Shintō shrine at Ōmi-shima.
