Hiroshima is a monument not only to the destructive forces harnessed by mankind, but also to the indomitable will of the human spirit to overcome tragedy. At the heart of the city lies Peace Memorial Park and the Atomic Bomb Dome. Travellers to Hiroshima will discover a more serene note at nearby Miyajima Island. One of the top-three scenic spots of Japan, the island is home to ancient Itsukushima Shrine, a designated National Treasure.

Kochi Prefecture is blessed with beautiful and abundant natural attractions, such as its coastline with the Kuroshio Current, clear rivers, and deep forest.
