About an hour away from Hiroshima by train or bus, Iwakuni (岩国) makes for a worthwhile half-day trip, or a stop-off en route between Yamaguchi and Hiroshima. The main reason to come here is to see the five-arched bridge Kintai-kyō, and to take a walk around the Kikkō-kōen area to which it leads. It's also possible to watch traditional cormorant fishing (birds trained by fishermen) here during the summer.
