Hiroshima Railway Stations Highlights
The Hiroshima Station opened its doors a long time ago in 1894, as a small railway hub along the Sanyo line. Now, over a hundred years later, the station became one of the busiest train stations of the region, servicing 5 lines and 14 platforms. The original historic building of the Hiroshima station was destroyed during the atomic bombing in 1945, and the beautiful complex that houses it today was built in 1965. Despite its quite an impressive age, inside the station is modern and very well equipped.
The Hiroshima railway complex boasts two entrances - the south entrance
and the north entrance
also known as Shinkansen entrance. So if you are planning to travel by a Japanese famous bullet train
, make sure to enter through the right doors.
