Hiroshima Castle - Review

Fine example of a flatland castle, the Hiroshima Castle is also known as the Carp Castle. It was built in the year 1589 by Mori Terumoto and was an important seat of power in Western Japan. The main keep of the castle in 5 stories tall. Surrounded by a moat, the castle was destroyed in 1945 during the atomic bombing. Thirteen years later, its main keep was rebuilt with an attractive wooden exterior. Within the keep is a museum that tells the history of Hiroshima and its castles and palaces. The top floor of the main building provides magnificent panoramic views of the city.

Hiroshima Castle, Hiroshima Reviews

  • Loved the castle. We did the little moat cruise which was lovely. The inside of the castle was also really good. Especially the view from the top of the castle. The grounds are all free and a nice walk around, or run if you're into that! Definitely worth the visit.

  • Impressive castle atop a mound with large floodlights turned on at night. It is now a museum featuring its history. No elevators, so you have to use stairs to reach the top. Breathtaking views of the castle grounds below and the city in the background.

  • Nice place to visit in Hiroshima. Easy to find this castle. This castle tower is a National treasure from year 193I. This castle destroyed by atomic bomb. This castle renovated in 1958. In 1989 the inside was restored. Today, it has turned into a history museum featuring Samurai culture.
