When the original 16th-century structure crumbled in 1945, Hiroshima Castle was erected in its place as a historically accurate replica. The iconic castle once served as a home of the daimyo, the feudal lord of Hiroshima. The structure's modern facsimile, which shines in white with a partially wooden exterior, contains a museum dedicated to Hiroshima's history before World War II. The ninomaru (outer castle wall) consists of the castle's main gate and turrets adjoined by a warehouse. Step inside to see details of the castle's reconstruction.

Hiroshima Castle Reviews
広島を代表する建造物なのだが、写真スポットに恵まれない。周囲に高いビルがいくらでもあるからだが、城内の木立もまた天守閣を撮影する障害になっている。城内からだと、天守閣の威容を確認しにくくなっている。 また、今回初めて知ったが、現在の復元天守閣の位置は元あった位置と違うようだ。せっかく天守閣自体は真面目に復元されているのに、これではねえと思ったしだい。たぶん、見栄えを考えてのことだろうが、木立が邪魔... more »It is a representative building of Hiroshima, but it is not blessed with a photograph spot. The castle's groves are also an obstacle to photographing the castle tower, although there are many tall buildings around it. From inside the castle, it is difficult to confirm the prestige of the castle tower. In addition, i learned for the first time, the position of the current restored castle tower seems to be different from the original position. Even though the castle tower itself has been seriously restored, I thought it was not. Maybe it's a good looking thing, but because the groves are in the way, it doesn't look good. There were many foreign tourists, and I realized that it was the second most popular spot after Miyajima and the atomic bomb.
お堀が大きく、橋の上からたくさんの鯉が見れます。 近くに餌売り場があり、お値段はお気持ちと書かれています。 餌をやると、色とりどりの鯉が渦を巻いて争奪戦を繰り広げ、その姿は思わず笑ってしまいます。子供連れには好評なようでした。 more »The moat is big, and you can see a lot of kites from the bridge. There is a food department nearby, and the price is written as feelings. When you feed them, colorful kites swirl and fight, and the appearance makes you laugh involuntarily. It seemed to be popular with children.
The area surrounding the castle is very beautiful, although quite small. The castle is stunningly pretty and is a reconstruction of the original, now turned museum. It consists of 5 levels, only the first two floors are in English and the rest is in Japanese. The steps are super steep. Costing an adult 370 yen to enter, the view from the top is pretty nice.
Nice place to visit but it didn’t take my breath away. In the surrounding ponds you can see beautiful colourful carps and swimming turtles. There are facilities to buy some food and feed fish at the premises.
