Living in Hiroshima

Hiroshima Prefecture is located in the Chugoku region of Honshu island. Its population is 2.9 million, and its capital is Hiroshima City. Hiroshima is known world-wide as the first ever target of a nuclear attack. The Atomic Dome in Hiroshima City, a World Heritage Site, is one of the only structures that was left standing after the strike. It stands as a symbol of peace today. Another important structure in Hiroshima Prefecture is Itsukushima Shrine. It is one of the most popular and famous sites in Japan and sees many visitors each year. The shrine and its gate appear to be floating in water at high tide. Hiroshima Prefecture also has many unique takes on popular Japanese cuisine, such as layered okonomiyaki.
