Day trippers to Iwakuni (岩国) can cross the five-arched bridge, Kintai-kyō, stroll around a former samurai area, climb to the top of samurai-sword-filled Iwakuni-jō and be back in Hiroshima by lunch or dinner. It's also possible to watch traditional cormorant fishing (birds trained by fishermen, used today mainly for entertainment) here during the summer, and Iwakuni is a popular stopoff en route between Yamaguchi and Hiroshima.
