Nice shrine to visit on the way out of the Hiroshima Castle area. Also an area for events like weddings to take place . Nice horse statue to the right of the entry

Lovely shrine located near the castle that was open to the public through the night.

The Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine, located in the vibrant city of Hiroshima, is a peaceful sanctuary that has both historical importance and a sense of spiritual calmness. This memorial provides visitors with a tranquil and reflective environment as an homage to the souls lost in times of conflict. Upon arrival on the premises, individuals are immediately met by a serene ambiance, which stands in sharp contrast to the bustling metropolitan atmosphere just outside the entrance. The well maintained gardens, shady walkways, and impressive architecture of the shrine structures combine to provide an atmosphere of deep respect and calmness.

Its a temple. Its more modern than most of other temples. It s a personal feeling, but seeing this "modern" or "new" temple, seems of when referring to temples. But its nice that they have new or rebuilt temples. They hold some festivals and traditional events. Close to Hiroshima castle

Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine is located within the confines of Hiroshima Castle. It was rebuilt after being destroyed in WWII by the atomic bomb. As one of the most famous Japanese shrines in Hiroshima, it is well maintained and attracts lots of visitors.
