My wife and I visited Onomichi and Hiroshima from April 22 to 24. On the first day, we rented a rental car at Hiroshima airport and visited Onomichi City. For the next two days, we traveled many places in Hiroshima City.

The population is 1.2 million and the biggest city in Chugoku district.The city was once a delta of Oota river. In the 16th century , the feudal load, Mouri Terumoto reclaimed the delta area and converted into agriculture fields. In the course of extending of the reclamation, an island of Seto sea was connected it to the delta area and now called it Ougon-zan which literally means golden mountain.
Some of the sightseeing spots are the atomic bomb dome, Miyajima island which is famous for Ituku-shima shrine which is designated world culture heritage site.
