I saw a great number of temples, gardens and parks in Japan. This was by far the most outstanding garden of them all. An absolute must see when in Hiroshima. The lawn and trees are outstanding!

This is a must do while visiting Hiroshima. Take public transportation it is affordable and efficient. The public ferry is convenient. Nice place to take a stroll, to eat some nice pastries. There is a serenity worth experiencing. The deer wandering around gives the island also a very nice pleasing atmosphere.

It takes around 30 or so minutes to walk along the Heiwa Main Avenue from Peace Bridge. The main road continues through a tunnel under the park, but there are steps that take you up either side of the road to the park. I was there in summer, so take a bottle of water and a hat. Great view across... More

One of those places I would like to go back and spend more time. Bathroom a little sketchy, though. Very manicured. Only time I was there was on the way to and from the Flower Festival.

Hijiyama Park was a lovely peaceful park that was easy to find (we put the location in google maps prior to leaving the hotel). It was a nice place to sit back and take in the peaceful surroundings after a sad day at the Peace Memorial. You can buy fish food and feed the carp which my partner loved. If... More

The first night we went walking up to a small park, Hijiyama park, where we could see the cherry blossoms and lots of people sitting on large tarps put there to reserve their space after dinner. They were eating bento boxes or homemade meals and enjoying the colors. Small grassy area right next to the Manga Library but plenty of... More

This feels less like a park and more like a hilly bit of Hiroshima that could not easily be built upon. If you are feeling lazy, you can avoid the steps on the western side and use the escalator from the subway station. The area around the art gallery is better in terms of landscaping. There is an interesting military... More

Perhaps it was because of the spectacular cherry blossoms we saw in Hijiyama Park (we were there in the first week of April, 2016), but I have more pleasant memories of this park than other TripAdvisor reviewers. It was a bit haphazard, I agree, but I think that was partly the geography (it's hilly) and the road system. It seems... More

Not one of the best parks we had visited in Japan , rather average, well kept but seemed lacking something not sure what just not as good a feeling as other parks we have visited - next to a very busy road as well.
