Hiroshima Castle was built by Mouri Terumoto. The Fukushima, followed by the Asano family lived in the castle in the Edo period.
In 1931, the castle became a National Treasure and was unfortunately later destoyed by the atomic bomb. In 1958, the exterior of the castle was renovated and in 1989, so was the interior. It now also serves as a museum.
Hiroshima's city centre was built around the Hiroshima castle and used to be a powerful area many centuries ago. However, in 1945, the atomic bomb destroyed the castle.

After its reconstruction and renovation, the castle serves as a museum and also offers a beautiful view of the city from the top floor.
