There are many sightseeing spots in Hiroshima that you should visit when you come to Hiroshima, such as Orizuru Tower, Miyajima SA, and Roadside Station Crossroad Mitsugi. Among the many sightseeing spots, we introduce the best spots for those who are interested in souvenir shops, in order of popularity and attention based on word-of-mouth and number of accesses by tripnote users.
1. Orizuru Tower
Top floor is an observation deck overlooking Peace Memorial Park
Opened in September 2016 next to the Atomic Bomb Dome, the observation deck "Hiroshima-no-Oka" on the 13th floor is made of cedar and cypress, and offers views of the city of Hiroshima, including Peace Memorial Park, and on a clear day, Mt. In addition, there is a spot where visitors can make and drop origami cranes, a product store, and a café.
2. Miyajima SA (off-road)
View of Miyajima and other islands in the Seto Inland Sea
The name "Miyajima SA" is aptly descriptive of the area's name, and the bright red, powerful torii gate, reminiscent of Itsukushima Shrine, stands tall and majestic inside the SA. Although there is no shrine after passing through the torii gate, it is an excellent location from which to view Miyajima and other islands in the Seto Inland Sea! The welcome gate allows visitors to enter from the public road.
3. Roadside Station Crossroad Mitsugi
A variety of souvenir stores and a "vegetable market" selling fresh vegetables!
This roadside station is located at the intersection of Routes 184 and 486. There is a "product store" with a large selection of souvenirs, a "vegetable market" selling fresh vegetables produced by local farmers, and a restaurant where you can enjoy soba noodles made with the famous water of Goshiki.
There is also a "Sukusuku" children's library, "Iki-iki Park" with playground equipment, and a "grass square" where you can picnic with a packed lunch, making it a great place for families to visit.
