Shukkeien garden

Situated adjacent to the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum is this tranquil garden, which was established in 1620 during the Edo period.

It suffered extensive damage following the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and served as a refuge for victims in the aftermath.

Today, it has been reconstructed to its former glory, with valleys, mountains and forests represented in miniature form while following traditional Japanese aesthetics.

Shukkeien centers around a tranquil pond, with a pathway leading to several teahouses where you can stop and enjoy the views.
