Personally I was so impressed with the US president’s speech that  I’ve come to realize that we should introduce Hiroshima all through the world as the place where we can feel how disastrous war is.

But also we need to be future oriented and we should invite to Hiroshima as the place
where all of us can feel how precious peace is and how beautiful life is.

Here are some attractions you will enjoy in Hiroshima.

Itsukushima Shrine.
This world heritage site is famous for its red torii gate and pier-like structures that appear floating on the sea at high tides.
