History shows us how much this city has suffered, and here is very visible a great characteristic of Japanese people: the ability to spring up again. The Memorial Park where there is the astonishing work of Kenzo Tange offers the possibility to reflect. Sadness is not present in these places which reminds to humanity to learn from its mistakes and to look forward with serenity.

Located in the South of the Honshu Island, the city is by the Inland Sea and so it has a sunny temperate climate, mild with no dry seasons and far from the chaos of the metropolis. This is why one of the most fascinating places of all Japan is situated here: the Itsukushima Shrine.
