A lot of shops and restaurants..I was able to get what I needed some Japanese socks and the Daiso 100 yen store. It is worth coming here to walk around for exercise and to watch the different tourists and locals..There is an underground shopping area but I only went there to get tourist information..I stumbled into a merchant selling sweet...

Great to feel the life, the vibe of a once destroyed city, yes there is just shops, restaurants and all the different trams but that's the point for me life where brefly there wasn't, great positive vibe.

Here, they have many shops and restaurant options, too! Even though the... More

I'd call this the "Main Drag" of Hiroshima (Main Street). There are lots of shops along this street selling anything you need-and the major department stores, too. Restaurants can also be found. I found this street to be a very fun place to sit and watch the colorful historic trams rumble past!

This is just a busy shopping junction one tram stop before the A Bomb Dome. There is a huge SOGO department store on one side, and the underground Shareo shopping centre. Kamiya-cho higashi street car stop is a handy intersection for exploring the south part of the city along Rijo-Dori.
