The castle of Hiroshima  Built in 1589 by the powerful feudal lord Mori Terumoto, was an important seat of power in Western Japan. It was spared the destruction that many other castles met during the Meiji Restoration and survived into the modern era.   Unfortunately, like the rest of the city, the castle was destroyed by the atomic bomb in 1945. Thirteen years later, its main keep was rebuilt in ferro-concrete with an attractive, partially wooden exterior.
