Hiroshima

Hiroshima prefecture is rich in natural beauty and history. It is located in the southwest of Japan's main island, Honshu, facing the Seto Inland Sea and being connected to both Shikoku and Kyushu via bridges. Its most famous symbol today is perhaps the red torii gate floating in front of Miyajima Island which has come to represent Japan. Internationally, Hiroshima city became famous for being one of the only cities in human history to be attacked with an Atomic Bomb during World War Two. This has made the city a symbol of the Japanese post-war effort for international peace. However, to associate the Hiroshima region only with this incident would be to overlook its amazing regional diversity and vital culture.
