Hiroshima Prefecture Tourism Information

The prefectural capital of Hiroshima is Hiroshima City. The population of the prefecture is approximately 2.8 million people and the population of the city is about 1.2 million people. Facing the Seto Inland Sea, the prefectural land has more than 140 large and small islands. There are two world cultural heritages sites, “Itsukushima Shrine” and “Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Atomic Bomb Dome).” There are tourism resources such as “Hiroshima-jo Castle,” ” Tomo no Ura,” “Ondo no Seto,” “Sandan-kyo,” “Taishaku-kyo and Onbashi Bridge,” ” Higashi Hiroshima Brewery Street” and others.  It is said that the origin of “Hiroshima” is that it was named by Terumoto Mori who had dominated “the Aki country” and “the country Bingo” in the Warring States Period. There are some specialty and specialty products, such as “Okonomiyaki,” “Oyster,” Momiji Manju (Autumn Leaves Bun),”Hiroshima-na (Hiroshima Greens),” “Kumano Fude (Brush)” and “Onomichi Ramen.” Especially, oyster is a major specialty of Hiroshima and has a history of over 400 years of farming, which boasts a 70% market share in the nation. There
are local cuisines such as “Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki (Japanese hot plate pizza),” “Anago-meshi (Conger Rice),” “Kaki no Dotenabe (oyster and vegetable stew with miso).”
“Itsukushima Shrine” in Miyajima-cho of Hatsukaichi City was built in the year 593 AD, and it had been assisted by those in power at the time, such as Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Kiyomori Tairano and Motonari Mori later. It is an unusual architectural style shrine in the world that is built on top of the sea and the torii (a gateway at the entrance to a shrine) of 16m high was also erected on top of sea. Since the shrine of Shindenzukuri style was built by Kiyomori Tairano in 1168, it was repaired repeatedly many times, and it still remains with the architectural style of the time.
More than three million tourists annually visit “Miyajima” where the Itsukushima Shrine exists.
“Tomo no Ura” refers to the port area in Tomo-cho in Fukuyama City, and it has been developed as a port of Shiomachi (waiting for the tide). It has been developed as a port of call sites to wait the trend of the tide is reversed at the time when there is not the ship with the steam engine power yet. It was also important as a strategic point for
marine traffic in the Warring States Period, but its importance gradually faded with the development of nautical technology. It was designated as a national scenic spot in 1925, and it has now become a tourist attraction as the city of port in which the streets and the port facilities of the time remain. “Tomo no Ura” is also famous as the place where Ryoma Sakamoto stayed in “Iroha Maru incident (the incident of the ship Irohamaru).” “The Iroha-maru Ship Incident” is the case that the ship of Kaientai, which Ryoma Sakamoto belonged to, collided with the ship of Kishu-han (Kishu Clan), and he stayed in Tomonoura for compensation negotiations. There is the “Iroha-maru Ship Memorial” in Tomonoura that displays the documentations of the time and there is the residence of Masuya Seiemon where Ryoma stayed.
“Ondo no Seto” is a strait between Kegoya in Kure City and the town of Ondo, the strait of small width 90m. Despite it is actually the narrow strait that there is only about 60m navigable width, there is a daily traffic volume of about 700 vessels today. There is the tradition that it was carved out in 1167 by Kiyomori Tairano, and the statue of Kiyomori is displayed in the park Ondo no Seto.
