This is a reproduction of the original castle. There are many photographs of the construction of the castle. The inside is quaint. Not much in the way of English information. It took us less than 30 minutes to get through everything. I'd give it a...More

Hiroshima castle is beautiful building with nice garden. I didn't visit inside the castle because I was told by the other travelers there's not that much to see. But I'm sure for the ones who are really into castles and history would enjoy the insides...More

We visited on an extremely hot day and some of the buildings were exceptionally hot with little air circulation. Not as much to see as at many of the other Shrines and palaces e.g. in Kyoto, but worth a quick drop in.

It was interesting to see and learn the history of the castle. I loved exploring all these. Just note it closes early, so morning visits are probably better.
