Why Is This Place so Great?
Hiroshima is most well known for the unfortunate incidents that occurred on August 6th, 1945, when the first atomic bomb was dropped over the city. The weapon was so powerful that it obliterated almost everything within a two-kilometer radius, which gave Hiroshima its distinction as a major dark tourism destination to this day.
However, what many don’t know is the great efforts taken to rebuild the city after the war. Hiroshima’s culturally rich history has been restored after years of reconstructing buildings of historical significance. With a population that has reached over 1 million, the city has rebounded well and its streets are buzzing. Visit Hiroshima’s downtown area on Hondori Street to see the city’s modern, car-free, and semi-outdoor pedestrian shopping arcade to see its vast transformation.
