The city of Hiroshima is known across the world as one of the sites where the atomic bomb was dropped at the end of World War II. Despite its tragic past, Hiroshima is now a blossoming metropolis, with a stunning castle and an affinity with baseball. It’s bordered by the Pacific in the south and mountain peaks to the north, so you can both explore the coastline and hike up peaks. The hotels of Hiroshima are some of the most unique in Japan, and these are the very best of them.
