About Hiroshima Train Station 

Hiroshima is one of the most famous cities on earth, as it was the setting for one of the atomic bombings that ended the Second World War. Numerous monuments and landmarks here memorialize the victims of the bombing throughout the city. Highlights include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and the Atomic Bomb Dome, all of which are recognized by UNESCO. Hiroshima has done a miraculous job reversing its fortunes, and the newfound prosperity despite the destruction is one of the more compelling reasons to visit the city. While there are poignant reminders about the price of war, there are plenty of things to do that aren’t based on the calamities of the 1940s. Traditional landmarks like the Shukkeien Garden and Hiroshima Castle demonstrate the beauty of Japan’s ancient past. 

There are also adventures outside the city worth checking out, including ferry rides to the many islands populating Hiroshima Bay - Miyajima Island is popular for its tranquil atmosphere and wonderful Torii Gate. Being a smaller city, you’ll also find a more regional culinary scene, specifically Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, an absolutely scrumptious savory pancake made with layers of noodles, fried egg, pork belly, or seafood, and a drizzle of savory sauce. There’s a warmth to the people in Hiroshima that transcends the typical politeness of Japan’s culture. Hiroshima is widely regarded as one of the friendliest places in the country, adding to the overall enjoyment. 

One of the most common ways to get to the city is via train from Japanese cities like Tokyo or Osaka. While there are connecting flights flying into Hiroshima Airport, the Shinkansen bullet train network makes it simple and affordable to get between cities. More often than not, international travelers will arrive right in the city center at Hiroshima Station. It’s the major transportation hub for Hiroshima City, with regional trains and local trains that connect the city with the wider region. It’s a convenient and comfortable place to travel through, with plenty of attractions nearby. 

Are there luggage storage options at Hiroshima station?

There is a left luggage service at Hiroshima Station’s 1F Hall. These are coin lockers that can be rented for a period of time. They are relatively small, which makes it difficult to store larger items and bulky bags. Any specialty item or large bag should be stored with a service, but these coin lockers are useful in a pinch for smaller items.

Where can I store luggage in Hiroshima?

There are plenty of options for storing your bags throughout Hiroshima. The hotel concierge or bellhop will generally be able to accept your luggage prior to check-in, but this can be inconvenient if your accommodations are located far away from where you’re trying to sightsee or have an appointment. There are also lockers and cloakrooms at most museums and attractions, but these might not be able to fit larger items or will be used up by the time you get there. If you need a dependable option, luggage storage services like Bounce provide the best features and reliability.  

Do train stations in Japan have luggage lockers?

It depends entirely on the train station, but the vast majority of JR transit facilities will have at least some form of luggage storage. The major railway hubs like Tokyo Station will absolutely have robust luggage storage facilities. Stations in smaller cities might have coin lockers, but sometimes there won’t be any. It’s rare for metro stations and subway stops to have any lockers. It’s best to plan ahead and check before traveling. 

How does Bounce work? 

The Bounce luggage storage service partners with local businesses to provide baggage storage in cities throughout the globe. With luggage storage facilities throughout Japan, including a dozen or so serving Hiroshima, it’s your best bet. If you need to find Hiroshima luggage storage locations, you’ll be able to use the handy Bounce mobile app to find the most convenient spot. You can even book ahead of time or on the go.

Things to do near Hiroshima Station

Peace Memorial Park 

This understandably headlines the list of Hiroshima’s attractions, and even more understandably has garnered the World Heritage Site distinction from UNESCO. Walking around Hiroshima’s livelier neighborhoods or tranquil parks, you can forget you’re in the city where a nuclear bomb was once dropped, but the Peace Memorial Park is a poignant reminder of the costs of war. While its monuments point to tragedy of mammoth proportions, it’s not an unpleasant place to visit. There’s a leafy park nestled between the two rivers and even a pond. Standing at the center is the epic Flame of Peace, a spire that will burn until all nuclear weaponry is put to rest. 

Hiroshima Castle 

If you need a break from the vital but at times exhausting World War II memorials, you can head to one of the most revered historical landmarks in Hiroshima. Hiroshima-jō, known colloquially as Carp Castle, is a 16th-century castle featuring a massive tower that overlooks the rest of the city and a deep moat lined with boulders. It was destroyed in the bombing and faithfully rebuilt in 1958, technically making it an exact replica. It's centrally located right near downtown Hiroshima, and you’ll be able to see the castle from most parts of the city center, so it's hard to miss. Make sure to check out the samurai reenactments and performances every afternoon after touring the castle. 

Atomic Bomb Dome 

Deservedly a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is one of the most visually striking monuments to the bombing of Hiroshima. Hiroshima’s Industrial Promotion Hall, built in 1915, was situated directly under the immediate blast range of the bomb. While everyone inside perished, the building's main structure miraculously survived. What’s left is a hollowed-out shell, with some original features, that’s been preserved throughout the decades as a monument. It stands today as the most visceral reminder of the destruction of the bomb and the price for peace. It’s both haunting and visually striking, especially at night when the building is floodlit, creating an unforgettably eerie sight.  

Mazda Museum 

Automotive enthusiasts and engineers flock to Hiroshima for one of the world's best car museums. Mazda has opened the hood (pun intended) on their assembly line by offering guided tours to car-obsessed visitors wanting to know how their automobiles are designed, built, and assembled right in Hiroshima. There’s also a museum dedicated to Mazda’s history, complete with antique cars and auto parts, and a deep-dive into how the company and Japanese auto industry navigated the war and bombing of Hiroshima. Reservations for a guided tour (English is offered) are required, so you’ll want to book ahead of time. 

Airport travel from Hiroshima Station

Hiroshima isn’t a destination reached by plane, as most international travelers reach Hiroshima by flying into either Kansai International Airport or Haneda Airport in Tokyo before taking the train to Hiroshima. If you’re taking a connecting flight to Hiroshima Airport, you can reach the city center (and Hiroshima Station) by taking a bus or taxi.

The Hiroshima Airport Limousine Bus is a direct route that takes less than an hour to reach Hiroshima Station. It costs about $10 and tickets can be purchased at the arrivals terminal. Taxis can be hailed outside the arrivals terminal at Hiroshima Airport. The ride does take almost an hour and will cost between $50 and $70, so it might not be worth the added expense compared to the bus. 

Getting around the city from Hiroshima Station

How to get to Hiroshima Castle from Hiroshima Station 

Hiroshima Castle is situated by both the Kamiyacho-nishi or Kamiyacho-higashi tram stops, with a delightful 10-minute walk where you can see the castle most of the way. A tram ride from Hiroshima Station will take 12-15 minutes and cost less than a dollar. You can take Tram Lines 1, 2, or 6. You can also take the trusty Hiroshima Sightseeing Loop Bus (Meipuru-pu) around the city, and the Orange and Lemon buses all stop at Hiroshima Castle. Two buses stop at Hiroshima Station every hour and are a highly useful resource for international travelers and first-time visitors. 

How to get to Peace Memorial Park from Hiroshima Station 

If you’re heading to the Peace Memorial Park from Hiroshima Station simply hop on tram line 2 or 6 and get off at the Genbaku-Domu Mae Stop. You’ll get there in 15 minutes and the tram costs less than a dollar. You absolutely won’t be the only sightseer getting off to visit the memorials, so it’s pretty difficult to get lost. If you want a scenic walk to get a sense of Hiroshima’s vibe, the 35-minute walk isn't the worst way to get your steps in.
