Hiroshima City, Mt. Ogon

Hiroshima | Ogonzancho, Minami-ku, Hiroshima-shi

This was the Niho Island that floated in Hiroshima Bay in the past, and that was the site of the Nihoshima Castle in the the Warring States period. An observation deck is built halfway on the mountain, and visitors can enjoy one of the most beautiful views in Hiroshima City. No people or any vehicles can enter from 23:00 to 5:00 all the year round. Please refrain from visiting by car since there are many pedestrians and no parking lots. It takes 50 minutes on foot to reach the top of the mountain.
