Travel Guide - Hiroshima Castle


Hiroshima Castle was originally built in 1589 by Mori Terumoto. Its original Tenshukaku main donjon was once designated as the National Treasure, but it was destroyed by the atomic bomb during the World War II. The current five-story Tenshukaku was constructed in 1958 and now stands in the form of a history museum.

Measured in kilotons, Castle Bravo was 1,200 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.
