Iwakuni

2.8
The castle town of Iwakuni has an interesting and varied history populated by samurai warriors and U.S. military personnel. The feudal era saw the construction of the town's castle, and many of the main attractions of Iwakuni hinge around the rebuilt citadel, including samurai areas and landmarks. The blossom trees in the parks make Iwakuni a popular day trip from Hiroshima, when seasonal displays add a counterpoint to the city's status as a large U.S. military base. Put Iwakuni at the heart of your travel plans by using our Japan trip planning site.
