Hiroshima's Hijiyama Park is a charming and serene urban haven that provides a nice diversion from the busy daily life. This park, which is perched atop Hijiyama Hill, offers breathtaking sweeping views of Hiroshima City and the surrounding area. The park is a beloved location for both locals and tourists due to its tranquil environment, abundant foliage, and well-kept pathways. The park is lined with walking routes that are ideal for leisurely strolls or serene nature hikes. The view offers a lovely backdrop all year round as it changes with the seasons, from vivid cherry blossoms in spring to colorful foliage in autumn. The Hijiyama Observatory, which provides stunning views of the Seto Inland Sea, the surrounding mountains, and the city of Hiroshima, is one of the park's highlights. Travelers can climb to this viewpoint to snap beautiful pictures or just unwind and enjoy the amazing views. The Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, which is located in Hijiyama Park, has an amazing collection of modern artwork by both domestic and foreign artists. By bringing culture to the park, the museum lets visitors experience the natural beauty of the area while also appreciating art. The park is a great spot for families to relax and for kids to play because it has large lawns, picnic places, and playgrounds. All things considered, Hijiyama Park provides a tranquil haven where guests may get lost in the great outdoors, take in breathtaking vistas, investigate artwork, and unwind in a calm setting away from the bustle of the metropolis. Hijiyama Park is a calm oasis in the middle of Hiroshima, offering opportunities for leisurely strolls, cultural encounters, or just unwinding and taking in the beauty of nature.

If you’re in Hiroshima after the memorial - this is a must see place. It’s a really beautiful park with amazing views and history. There’s a really short hike to get to the top, but the views are beautiful.

(+) Hidden gem in Hiroshima. (+) Great outdoor space with lush greenery and scenery. (+) Great place for photography (landscape, nature, social media, etc.) (+) Paved roads good for running or walking. (+) Children's playground available. (+) Car parking available. (+) Public restrooms available. (-) Actual entrance can be tricky. Get yourself to the entrance of the adjacent shopping mall and use the SKYWALK to go up the hill. (-) No vending machines or snack vendors available (that I saw), so grab your drinks and snacks before you head up. (-) The museum was closed for renovation at the time of my visit (Aug. 2021), so I was unable to explore that part of the park.

Beautiful park with lots of modern art scuptures, trees and walking paths to enjoy. Up and down paths around park, open spaces for picnics. Fantastic modern art museum. Interesting manga museum for manga fans to explore and rare open areas to run, play and relax. Also beautiful views of city and surrounding areas. Escalator to top. Free parking 🅿️ also available. Clean public toilets and wheelchair accessible parking, paths and entranceways.

Big park. Only covered a small quarter of it. Beware it is wild and hilly in parts...stick to the road and paths. it is also a quiet place that encompasses a beautiful museum, a library, memorials, a temple and cemeteries.
