Base yourself at the Sheraton Grand in Hiroshima while you visit the fascinating Peace Memorial Park, among other historical sites paying tribute to the city’s turbulent past. Spend your days exploring quaint, market lined streets and sampling fresh local oysters the size of your hands. Enjoy peaceful island life on nearby Miyajima, awash with sacred deer and serene shrines that appear to be floating in the water, the most iconic of which is the Itsukushima Torii Gate. Alternatively, take a cable car to the top of Mt. Misen to observe the beautiful surroundings of Hiroshima Bay.
