Area & Activities

Experience the Heart of Hiroshima

Hiroshima is situated in the Chugoku region of western Honshu, Japan's largest island. Bordering the Seto Inland Sea and home to six rivers and an ancient port, it is aptly known as the "City of Water." The Sheraton Grand Hiroshima Hotel is conveniently located next to Hiroshima Station, near top shopping and government offices. It is also in close to the bullet train, highways and bus terminals. Hiroshima Airport (HIJ) is located approximately 50 kilometers east of the city.

Bursting with historical sites and impressive architecture, Hiroshima offers endless exploration. Visit the celebrated Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For a different experience, take an evening cruise of the bay and see the shrine in its illuminated nighttime form. Shukkeien Garden is another historical must-see. Nestled along the Kyobashi River, this calming oasis is filled with picturesque islets and bridges. For stunning city and harbour views, visit Hiroshima Castle (Carp Castle). Its interiors house several exhibitions, along with iconic Japanese swords. For additional cultural enrichment, visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, the Hiroshima Museum of Art, the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum and the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art.

Throughout the year, the city also hosts numerous festivals. Two of the most popular are the annual Hiroshima Flower Festival and the biennial Hiroshima International Animation Festival. Finally, no matter the season, be sure to sample the region's famous okonomiyaki, a layered dish of eggs, cabbage, bean sprouts, sliced pork, and more.
