Castle entrance

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 after being destroyed by the atomic bomb on August 6th 1945. Originally built in 1590 and there is concrete bunker where the first radio broadcast originated after the 1945 atomic bomb.

Bridge across the moat

The selfie is nearly as popular with ladies as their handbag mirror. 🙂

I climbed the stairs to the top

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 From here you get a wonderful view of Hiroshima. This building is now a museum with an entry fee of 360 Yen, or $3.25 USD as at November 21 2016.

View from the top

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 Up to now I have been very lucky to experience terrific weather, so much better for taking photographs.

Hiroshima population is 1,196,853

Mountains in the distance

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 Hiroshima Castle is just north of the Atomic Dome and the Peace Museum.

The atomic bomb

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 Certainly one of the most horrific events ever in the history of the world. Please check out my photo blog on the Peace Memorial Park.

Gold plated roofing tile

Dating back to the 16th century

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 I have never seen a better looking roof tile in my life. 🙂

A Samuri suit

I’m guessing this is what your well dressed Samuri wore in the 16th century, my apologies for the reflection on the glass cabinet.

Adjacent to the castle

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 Forgive me for not knowing the purpose of this gate & building adjacent to the castle.

One of the most interesting visitors at the castle

Hiroshima Castle reconstructed 1958 When a lady visits the castle she needs to dress to impress. 🙂
