We started off the third day of our trip to Japan very early so we would arrive in time for some sightseeing. We caught a 6:30 AM train to Hiroshima (from Tokyo) and were out exploring the city by around 12:30.
Most of our time was spent at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park which is made up of a museum and lots of monuments dedicated to the various groups of victims. We also spent a good amount of time walking around and exploring the main shopping area- Hondori Street.
Here are some of the things we did:
- Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
- Checked out the memorials around Peace Park
- Spent time viewing the A-Bomb Dome
- People watching, stores and lunch on Hondori Street
