Hiroshima Castle is a fun spot to visit for a bit of history on ancient Hiroshima. The castle boasts several floors and visitors are able to climb to the top for an expansive, awesome view. I highly recommend checking out the view around sunset - the light can’t be beat!

Rebuilt and moved after 1945 Hiroshima Castle is a look back at life during the Feudal Era of Japan. The Castle itself is a central point of Hiroshima, and offers views into what architecture once was in Japan.

Since the original castle was destroyed by the bombing, this is a reconstruction. It's still beautiful to visit and inside is a history of museum displaying stories and artifacts from the region. The gardens are nice to walk around, especially during cherry blossom season.

This is one of the more picturesque castles in Japan today. There are substantial grounds around the castle that are park-like. At least when I went, one of the former outer walls could be entered and a little bit of history about the castle, including the effects of the atomic device, is given.

The castle is not as big as one would expect, but it houses a great museum on the history of Hiroshima. It was rebuilt from the ground up after being completely destroyed by the atomic bomb.

広島城は昭和になってからも天守閣などが残っていて国宝に指定されていましたが、広島への原子爆弾投下により、焼失してしまいました。現在ある鉄筋コンクリート製の天守閣や、木造の表御門、多聞櫓などは戦後に復元されたものですが、石垣の一部は室町時代から残っているものもあります。復元された城とはいえ、城好きとしては見るべきポイントも多い城です。

広島城は、市内を流れる太田川河口のデルタ地帯に毛利輝元が築きました。地盤が軟弱なため工事は難航しましたが、1599年に築城が終了しました。堀が三重に巡らされ馬出を多数設けた実戦的な城構えで、当時の大坂城に匹敵する規模の城だったと伝わります。関ヶ原の戦い後の1600年には、福島正則が城主となり大きく改築されました。さらに1945年には原子爆弾の投下によって倒壊してしまいました。現在見られる城郭建築は全て1958年以降に再建されたものです。

原爆ドームから歩いて10分。江戸時代に建てた城は原爆により焼失してしまいましたので、復元天守となりますが、言われなければ分からないぐらいに良く出来たお城です。 最上階からの展望も素晴らしく、近くに高いビルが無いため遠くの方まで見る事が出来ます。館内は英語、中国語、韓国語での表記があり、海外からの観光客も楽しめると思います。
