Six rivers flow through this city, which is often called Water City.

In 1591, Mouri Terumoto built his castle on the delta of Ota River, It was then that this area first came to be known as Hiroshima. Since then, the castle town continued to develop prosperously. Then, in a split second, on August sixth, 1945, the town turned to ruined ashes - Hiroshima, the first city in the world to suffer atomic warfare. After the war, having recovered from a city of ruins, it is an attractive place to visit, - an International City of Peace and Culture.
