The target of the first atomic bomb in history during World War II in 1945, Hiroshima was rebuilt after the war into what is now a major cultural center. In a city of ghosts where there are numerous reminders of its horrific history, such as Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, Shukkei-en Garden and Hiroshima Castle, Hiroshima is a port city and the base for Mazda Corporation's headquarters.
You will find fast and efficient transport by way of an amazing streetcar system to explore the bustling city with its plethora of museums of every persuasion you can imagine. If the streetcar can't get you there, then there are plenty of options such as ferries and buses, or the monorail built for the 1994 Asia Games. The Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum focuses on modern European and Japanese art, and the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art is where you will find the works of Andy Warhol and Frank Stella.
The must try local delicacy is "okonomiyaki" which is a savory pancake cooked on a hotplate while you wait. Layers can be egg, cabbage, bean sprouts, sliced bacon or pork. Then you can throw on top whatever takes your fancy. Or, simply down a bowl of noodles in between sight seeing adventures.
