Another good option is to sit on the park bench of the peace memorial and reflect a little of your life, while looking at the movement of the river! A tourist spot that can not be missed on your visit to Hiroshima.

This goes round the edge of the peace park. It was beautiful and on a nice warm autumn day with the red trees lining the river bank it was nice to have a wander along and take in the city.

Large pathways on both sides on the main bridge where you can see the Atomic Bomb Dome and adjacent parks. The walkways on the sides of the river is also nice to stroll and chat at.

We’ve been to several cities across Japan, the area around this river near the memorial park was one of my favorites. Nice buildings and relatively peaceful. Serval places where you can just sit down and watch the river and the boats go by.

We had the good fortune to be in Hiroshima during cherry blossom time. The river was so pretty. As we walked back to our apartment from the Peace Memorial Park, we had to take pictures. You can’t avoid the river when you visit the park....More
