Ōta River Hiroshima
Hiroshima city food transport, as you would expect the top four or five things to see in Hiroshima revolve around the shocking event on August 6th 1945. Sadly 140,000 people lost their lives when U.S. airmen unleashed the first atomic bomb on the unsuspecting Hiroshima civilians.
Three days later of course the repeated the horror at the beautiful city of Nagasaki.
One of many symbolic monuments within the Memorial Peace Park the clock tower marks the exact time of the explosion, 8.15 am.
Reconstructed in 1958 after being totally destroyed by the bomb, a must to see when visiting this very nice city. Check out my photo blog through THIS LINK.
Streetcars or trams are a great way to get around the city, however I prefer the bus. If you hold a JAL rail pass the bus is free, this paticular one called the loop bus leaves from in front of the Hotel Granvia beside Hiroshima station. There are two different routes which take you past all the Hiroshima attractions, you simply hop on & off as many times as you wish. For a super room rate with free WiFi just book through THIS LINK.
Covered shopping arcades
They are a common feature in most Japanese cities, rain hail or shine you can move around & shop in comfort.
Japanese Craft Beer Café
Close to the railway station & my hotel is Raku Beer a Japanese Craft Beer Café, an interesting selection of excellent beer.
Pour me another please.
There is a happy hour daily from 5pm to 7pm.
Another great meal
Many restaurants in Japan are noisy, busy and a lot oif fun & atmosphere. This one was all those things along with terrific food.
To my surprise they also sold Jack Daniels & Soda in large mugs.
Jack & soda with Crispy burdock root
Now there’s a new combination.
Crispy burdock root
Crispy burdock root, a Eurasian species of plants in the sunflower family, cultivated in gardens for its root used as a vegetable. Not only had I never tried it, I had never heard of it before, apparently the nutritional benefits are quite high.
My new friend
Made sure I always had a JD & lots of food. 🙂
I tried to look up the meaning of Daikichi & got several different explanations. 🙂
One of my best dining experiences so far on my seven Japanese cities adventure.
So many interesting bars & restaurants in Hiroshima.
In fact it’s a case of so many bars & such little time. 🙂

Wandering through the back streets is a marvellous experience in Japan, I don’t know of any safer country except perhaps Singapore.
Hiroshima at night
In all Japanese cites there is always lots of neon lights.
A happy group of tourists
Japan is a place where you can’t help being happy.
Even this old fellow looks happy
He seems to have a large collection of colourful dolls.
A typical corner bar restaurant near my hotel
You don’t have to walk far in Hiroshima to get a cold beer or some food.
Opposite my hotel
The bridge take you to an elevator down to the underground arcade to the station.
My hotel is in a perfect location close to the station and a short walk to the major Hiroshima shopping area.
From the railway station you walk through this underground arcade which brings youout about 80 meters from my hotel.
Good band playing in the plaza.
As well as entertainment there are coffee shops etc here.
Location is perfect & very good room with free WiFi. For an excellent rate just book through THIS LINK.
