how many nights recommended for Hiroshima?

To get the main idea of the city and be able to see the main sites.

How many nights you all recommend here? I was thinking about 2 full days?

Or would i be best to stay here longer and do a few day trips while taking this as main base?

thanks

1. Re: how many nights recommended for Hiroshima?

If you spend 2 full days at Hiroshima, you can just spend one overnight and visit Miyajima as well.

Hiroshima is often visited as a day trip. Staying longer in a city gives you a better idea of what the city is about and lets you relax into its pace. There is no right or wrong.

Whether you use Hiroshima as a main base depends on what else you want to see in the area.

I would spend 1 night in hiroshima and 1 night in Miyajima, it's definitely worth visiting.

2 full days would be good.

There are many other interesting places in Western Japan that are overlooked on this forum. For example, Yamaguchi, Shimane & Okayama are nearby, there is so much to see & experience around there.

Here are 3 links

Aside from the memorial for the atomic bomb, there really is not much really interesting that I can recall there.

Peace Park and its museums should take 1/2 day, but I needed some time afterwards to recover. You can easily spend another 1/2 day walking around the city and visiting its Museum of Contemporary Art. The Prefectural Art Museum and the adjacent Shukkei-en Garden could take another 1/2 day. And Miyajima could take 1/2 to 1 day.
