Anna Kraskovska

Welcome travel fans! I’ve been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and I will be happy to share this passion with you…

Surrounded by the sea and mountains, Hiroshima is full of fabulous sights. It is located in the western part of the Japanese archipelago and is conveniently located within one hour and half flight or bullet train ride to major tourist destinations such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto.  Did you know that Hiroshima is not just a dark history of WWII, but a great destination where you can enjoy beautiful nature, ancient temples, delicious food and rich history?

Expert tips in Hiroshima

Anna Kraskovska

Stay longer

Most of the people come here for a day trip and leave continue perceiving Hiroshima as only a place of tragedy.

Find out what else Hiroshima can offer except for the Atomic bomb memorial… Stay 3 days to discover that Hiroshima is a great destination where you can enjoy beautiful nature, ancient temples, delicious food and rich history

Anna Kraskovska

Authentic experience

I encourage you to experience more authentic Japan wherever you go and in Hiroshima in particular. Don’t miss staying in traditional Japanese ryokan at Miyajima island, less popular but sacred temples, animal therapy, oyster farm, authentic izakayas, local food and many other truly Japanese features.

Anna Kraskovska

Tourist PASS

Consider purchasing a Tourist Pass in case you are going to stay longer than other tourists.

1 Chome-2-6 Miyajimaguchinishi, Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima 739-0412, Japan 〒739-0412 広島県廿日市市宮島口西1丁目2−6

This place is a real hidden “gem” for those who adore oysters. It is an oyster farm and oyster shack that serves fresh oysters just on the bank. It's definitely a rough looking place "BUT, that is the charm!" You will need to pay for the grill table and per Kg of oysters you grill and eat. Really amazing experience, especially for a couple or friends. Moreover, you can take a tour to the wooden platforms to see how oysters grow. Highly recommended experience!

Dangerous & recommended city areas

0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100

Fortunately there are no dangerous areas in Hiroshima. Where to stay is up to you. I would choose Miyajima island for tranquility, nature and sacred temples at least for 2 days and finish my journey in the city center to cover top Hiroshima sights before leaving.

Beautiful stay near main attractions and sea-side view. An elegant guest service lady went the extra mile checking me out of the hotel the next day. I would come back just for her kindness in helping me with my luggage down the few steps of the hotel entrance. The room was perfect for a great night's rest. I will come back! Thank you!
