We spent two days amongst the areas that were ravaged by the Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima, centered around the Atomic Bomb Dome.

Hiroshima is a sobering city that amplifies the devastating effects of what it means to live in a war zone, and how that affects the human condition. It is also a city that has risen from the ashes, not to forget its past, but to dedicate every day towards the promise of the future. The city of Hiroshima is also...

We didn't know how good we had it. This was our first airbnb experience in Japan, and we didn't fully appreciate the fusion of amenities we were offered.

A visit to the Peace Memorial Park will offer you a sobering glimpse into the past as you...
