We only visited the remains of the Hiroshima Castle as it was on our trail. To be honest, I was expecting a little more but it's the ruins and that's all it is. Should I go: if you have plenty of time then yes. Should...More

Like the rest of Hiroshima the castle was rebuilt after the bomb. There are some foundations left in the grounds, but I could only find one sign in English so you have to make educated guesses. You can climb to the top of the castle...More

The museum itself isn’t worth the entrance fee. Explanations are given in a very oldfashioned and superficial way, many explanations are in Japanese only. The view from the tower is quite nice, though.

The castle is a nice contrast to the far more know peace site. It give some longer historical perspective which is nice

Used to be the highest point in the city. The castle was completely destroyed in WW2 but rebuilt to its old form after the war. A good place to visit if you are interested in ancient castle.

I loved this castle. There were outfits to try on and wonderful people to help. There was a balcony to see the city.

It’s a nice castle, where you can get to the top and have a good view of the city. I will not recommend to take a boat trip.
