Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA)広島市現代美術館

Art Museum

This museum is located in Minami Ward, Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is inside Hijiyama Park, which is a well-known cherry blossom spot. It opened in 1989 as Japan’s first public modern art museum. Its collection focuses on postwar modern art and features over 1,600 works, including Henry Moore’s “The Arch” and Andy Warhol’s “Marilyn.” In addition to collection exhibits and planned exhibits, the museum also hosts workshops and other events. The building design by architect Kisho Kurokawa is also not to be missed.

          Hiroshima Main Areas


          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.
