The sun was shining and there was a cool breeze in the air - the perfect day for a morning stroll. And what better place to go for a wander, than around Hiroshima Castle? Located just north of the city center, the castle stands elegantly atop a small rise, surrounded by a wide moat. A 1.5km walking trail weaves past the reconstructed ninomaru outer wall and around the moat, providing a number of excellent angles from which to view the castle. With happy tourists snapping away, kids learning to ride their bikes, locals perched on benches engrossed in books, birds singing and the castle standing proudly in the background, it was a beautiful way to spend part of the day.
