Most Beautiful Spots" of Japan, and as a part of the Seto Inland Sea
National Park, it has received several distinctions, such as a place of
extraordinary scenic beauty, exceptional history, a scenic zone, and a
natural monument. The virgin forests neighboring Mt. Misen are representative
of the lush greenery and abundance of nature which still covers the entire
island even now.

- Peace Memorial Park , World Heritage A-Bomb Dome
- The area now known as Peace Memorial Park was previously an urban district called Nakajima. It is estimated that at the time of the atomic bombing, about 6,500 people lived in the seven cho (neighborhood units) in the Nakajima district. On August 6, 1945, the first atomic bomb in history exploded directly over this area. In addition to the usual inhabitants, thousands of volunteer army corps members and mobilized students were in the area demolishing buildings for a fire lane. Nearly all of these lives were snuffed out as the entire district vanished instantly. On August 6, 1949, with enactment of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial City Construction Law, it was decided that the entire Nakajima District would be devoted to "peace memorial facilities" .The park covers approximately 122,100 square meters. It was designed by Kenzo Tange, a professor at Tokyo University, and three others, whose proposal was selected through a design competition that drew 145 proposals.
- The A-Bomb Dome was previously the Hiroshima Prefectural Commercial Exhibition Hall, designed by Czech architect Jan Letzel and constructed in 1915. When the atomic bomb exploded, it ravaged the building instantly. Heat blazing from above consumed the entire building, killing everyone in it. Because the blast attacked the building from virtually straight overhead, some walls escaped total collapse. Along with the wire framework of the dome, these form the shape that has become a symbol. At some point it became known as the "A-bomb Dome."In December 1996 the A-bomb Dome was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List based on the Convention for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
- Getting there: 15 minutes by car from the Prince Hotel
- Hiroshima Castle
- At the time of construction in 1589, Hiroshima Castle was the largest in western Japan, occupying an area many times its present size. Know as the "carp castle", it was built by the feudal lord Terumoto Mori. In 1931, the castle was designated as a national treasure. After its destruction in the atomic bomb blast of 1945, it was reconstructed in 1958 from modern ferro-concrete.
