The Hiroshima program is a USAC partnership program. Learn more about on-site program elements and the city itself below.
Hiroshima faces the tranquil Seto Inland Sea in an environment richly endowed with natural beauty. The northern part of the city is mountainous, offering recreation opportunities in water sports in the summer and snow sports in the winter. Hiroshima is an energetic and thriving metropolis with excellent shopping, movie theatres, restaurants, and cultural activities. The city was devastated by the atomic bomb in 1945, but its present prosperity is living proof of the energy and willpower of the Japanese. Except for the Atomic Bomb Dome, there is little left to remind you of the devastation. Hiroshima Prefecture is dominated by the Chugoku Mountain Range, with small towns and farming villages, which offer many kinds of traditional entertainment such as Kagura, sacred Shinto music and dance.
