Hiroshima will always be associated with the atomic bomb dropped on August 6, 1945. However, despite this devastating event, Hiroshima has recovered from the tragedy and today is considered one of the most modern and developed cities in Japan. atomic bombs are still visible in some parts of the city as if to remember the fateful day.

Today, Hiroshima is considered a "capital of peace" and is home to many attractions related to atomic bombing, as well as a number of important structures that survived the bombing, not to mention museums, galleries and gardens. Check out 10 must-see places in Hiroshima.

The wounds of war today are hidden under a modern and youthful city, but they are still purposely open in the Parque da Paz and the Dome of the Bomb. Hiroshima and its people - together with Nagasaki, the second and last atomic bomb victim, are working hard to ensure that this type of event never happens again.

While they do not realize that dream, enjoy life in baseball matches of the local team, the Carp, venerate the okonomiyaki dish - a kind of pancake with different fillings, and make pleasant walks through the shrine of Itsukushima, just minutes from downtown. Both this pleasant temple and the peace memorials have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
