Yokogawa town, located at the west of Hiroshima,

Yokogawa town, located at the west of Hiroshima, has a very different feel from downtown Hiroshima. It’s one of the few areas in the city that has retained its shitamachi (下町) or low town status. In fact, before the bombing, it used to be the central area of Hiroshima, not Hondori. Yokogawa Station itself may have a number of new shops surrounding it, but if you poke around in the backstreets you’ll find a wonderful mix of Showa Era shops along with alternative places that don’t fit the mainstream, conservative nature of the rest of Hiroshima.

Good place, KYOTO!

Kyoto (京都, Kyōto) served as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence from 794 until 1868. It is one of the country’s ten largest cities with a population of 1.5 million people and a modern face.

Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its exceptional historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and escaped destruction during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.
