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
Beautiful Japanese castle to take pictures at; the grounds are impeccably maintained. The history of the castle is a fascinating one, and many of the museum's placards are translated into English (a spoken tour is not a necessity). Has a nice, albeit small, gift shop inside the castle to pick up a few unique gifts. A MUST VISIT, when in Hiroshima.
Hiroshima Castle is about a 10 minute walk from the Peace Memorial Park but definitely worth checking out. The grounds are very small but the castle is pristine and not very crowded. The gardens surrounding it are very beautiful as is typical of Japanese arrangements and maintenance. Worth the short detour.
There are several levels with history exhibits focusing on various portions of medieval Japan. At one point, you can try on the samurai armor! There are great views from the top of Hiroshima. If you go just before close, you might be able to catch the sunset.
Definitely climb to the top for a great view of Hiroshima. There were costumes from the Edo period that you get to try on, which was unexpected and fun. Most of the exhibits were in Japanese, and we didn't buy the audio tour but it was still nice to see all the displays of samurai swords and castle models.
It has quite a lot of old warfare katanas and armour. It also has looks of traditional rooms for tea and kitchen. There is also an observatory kind of a place on the top floor. Photography isn't allowed for everything (there is a sign for particular things) over there. There is one katana there which you can try lifting and try on the old body armour and helmet. There is also a kimono trying on area. It has brief information about everything there. Tickets are paid for adult, higher secondary and college students and the ticket is free for lower secondary and below. Good place to visit when come to Hiroshima. The photo that I have put is a photo of the castle.
