Fifteen minutes by Shinkansen from Hiroshima Station, Fukuyama, the second largest city in the Hiroshima prefecture, is best known for Fukuyama-jo (a castle that dates back to 1619) and the park in which it is situated; the Fukuyama-jo Park. Both tourist attractions are located on a hill in the city center. The top of the castle tower offers an astounding bird eye view of the municipality. Fukuyama-jo Park is large enough to hold a total of three different museums, in addition to the one displayed inside the castle; the Fukuyama Museum of Art, the Human Rights and Peace Museum and the Hiroshima Prefectural Museum of History, all of this just a short walk from Fukuyama Station.
