Itsuku Shima Jinja Shrine World Heritage Site

 
Itsuku Shima Jinja Shrine World Heritage Site Itsuku-shima-jinja Shrine, located in Miyajima, Hatsukaichi City in southwestern Hiroshima, is a unique shrine that looks as if it is floating in the sea.

Hiroshima

 
Hiroshima It was a sunny morning in Hiroshima on August 6th 1945, when the Atomic bomb dropped out of the sky, obliterated the city, and changed the course of world history forever. The atomic flash and the eventual loss of over 200,000 lives have forever linked the city of Hiroshima with the utter ferocity and ultimate tragedy of nuclear holocaust. Today this beautiful city of nearly 3 million, located in Japans southwestern Chugoku region, offers some of the most somber and moving sightseeing in Japan. Though the event will no doubt be seared on the Japanese consciousness forever, the Heiwa Kinen-koen (Peace Memorial Park) located at ground zero of the Atomic bombs explosion is a reminder and moving memorial to those who ...
