Of course, must see the remaining standing building in it's condition. Take the time to visit the Peace Museum. This is all very accessible from the cruise port.

This is an essential port for travelers to reach Hiroshima by cruise ships or to reach nearby islands such as Miyajima. We took our ferry here to Miyajima. The port was clean and there were quite a few shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Enjoyed sitting here waiting for our hydrofoil to Matsuyama
One must remember this is only a huge area to catch ferries, not a place to make a special visit.
The facility is large and clean

If traveling to Matsuyama on the island of Shikoku then by ferry is a great way to go. I used the Ishizaki fast ferry leaving Hiroshima Port at 9.30am arriving into Matsuyama at 10.47am after a brief stop at Kure port. One way ticket was 4,970 yen. Once you arrive at Matsuyama port it is easy to grab a lux bus to JR Rail Station, it cost 610 yen. No hassles and easy to navigate, once at JR station you are in the center of the city with easy access to accommodation and sites.

We were berthed in a new terminal of the port which is Ujina 1 man ton berth ( or Gaibo Futo );
This terminal has a new information building manned with many enthousiastic guides of which most speak english.
Good information and maps are available.
Free Wifi and a FREE shuttle bus to the peace park !!

I went to catch the high speed ferry to Matsuyama, as I went to pay the lady told me I could get the ticket half price (as a tourist) if I pay with cash so I went to the atm, and it doesn't accept foreign cards so I went back to pay with card and she wouldn't let me, she pointed on a map to where another atm was (10mins walk away!) I couldn't leave my bags and regardless the ferry I needed left in 10 minutes, so after some time of me using google translate poorly I convinced her I didn't mind paying full price and got my ferry.

Would be nice if they had another atm that accepted foreign cards.

Our cruise ship had a one-day visit to Hiroshima on a very nice day. I'd been to Nagasaki many times, but this was my first time to the city where the USA dropped the first Atomic bomb in 1945 that helped to bring a close to the war.
The port area was very clean and welcoming, and it's possible to walk to a shopping area, although the main "downtown area" is quiet a distance away (bus ride and then a 25-minute train ride).
The terminal building is more like a large warehouse, but there were many vendors set up inside (some look permanent) with all types of items for sale. You can buy shirts and kimonos, items to eat (although most can't be brought back on the ship), water, sodas, etc. There was a table with free information and maps and helpful people.

There are so many places that you can travel to from Hiroshima Port or take a cruise around the nearby islands of the Inland Sea. The port building itself has all been renovated and now hosts a number of cafes and restaurants, bakeries, and convenience stores from which you can purchase basic needs through to a relaxing meal.
The streetcars will take you from Hiroshima Station or downtown Hiroshima to the port in relaxed comfort for a trip to somewhere or just to visit and take a walk around the area, or enjoy a coffee or lunch.
Check the schedules as there are so many places you can visit leaving from the port - day trip or holiday, take the car on some of the ferries for drives to different areas to see more of Japan.
In front of the Port terminal there is a large park with great places to play for children and families, picnic, or just relax in the sun. From November there is a great bbq oyster restaurant where you can sit outside or inside and enjoy a feast of oysters. This is always VERY popular with the people of Hiroshima and surrounding areas.
Definitely worth a visit and a walk along the waterfront!
