The notable cat, Koume-chan, from the Japanese plum sweets is here too.

    Hiroshima Pref. Fukuyamashi Tomochou Tomo 271-1
    This is a museum located in Tomo Town, Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, which was opened in 2012 after renovating an over 150 year old cellar.

Many art works in the museum are innovative and “raw art” closely connected to the local community. Also, the historical grand ceiling cannot be missed.

Hiroshima Main Areas

around-area-map

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
