Good place for a walk in the day, not at night as it is not well-lit. There is a museum of contemporary art and a manga library. There are also cemeteries at some parts of this huge garden.

This is a pretty enough park with some good views but because it is at the top of the hill there really is not much here to enjoy unless you want to sit and read. Fortunately, it is not on its own. You can access the park by taking the Skywalk from the Alpark mall and then visit the Museum of Contemporary Art or simply stop and enjoy a coffee. It is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

I put this on my "to do" list because based on what I read I thought it would be a beautiful park maybe similar to Central Park in NYC or something similar but smaller of course with nice picnic areas, maybe a garden, etc.. Plus, there would be wonderful views of Hiroshima. Depending on what direction you are coming from you might take the Skywalk or walk to the top of the hill which takes a bit of effort. I did the latter and from the top I headed toward the Contemporary Art Museum. From there I started to walk around looking for a "park". Instead, I discovered it's more like a walk through some bits of forest area. No flat, green areas, no flowers or gardens, just walk along a path with nothing special to see. In addition, it's easy to get lost a bit because the maps I saw were not detailed and I got turned around twice. I found the Skywalk and that was nothing special either. I kept looking for magnificent views of Hiroshima but could only find one area near the museum which gave a good view but it wasn't a wide area to look out from. I should also note there were no signs indicating that it was a great viewing spot. I actually walked past it twice thinking it was nothing special because it didn't look special. Indeed, this "park" really isn't, in my view. My only disappointment in Hiroshima.

There's a very quite (almost hidden) Museum at the top of the hill. The Museum has a Henry Moore outside and some other great pieces inside including a tribute to mothers everywhere created by Yoko Ono.

This park is located on a hill and can be accessed by using the Hiroshima Sightseeing bus.
At the top there is the Hijiyama Skywalk... don't waste your time!

Good place for running or just walking. Nothing special, clear day you can see quite far away. Nice park for kids near to parking place. That picture is not from that park or if it's, then i didn't find that place!!!

Not far from the Hiroshima station, you can find the Green hill called Hijiyama park. We can go there by walk from the station. In this area there are many spots to get beautiful scenery of Hiroshima city, and also there are many other tourism object inside such as museum and manga library.

I saw a great number of temples, gardens and parks in Japan. This was by far the most outstanding garden of them all. An absolute must see when in Hiroshima. The lawn and trees are outstanding!

This is a must do while visiting Hiroshima. Take public transportation it is affordable and efficient. The public ferry is convenient. Nice place to take a stroll, to eat some nice pastries. There is a serenity worth experiencing. The deer wandering around gives the island also a very nice pleasing atmosphere.

It takes around 30 or so minutes to walk along the Heiwa Main Avenue from Peace Bridge. The main road continues through a tunnel under the park, but there are steps that take you up either side of the road to the park. I was there in summer, so take a bottle of water and a hat. Great view across the city adjacent to the museum entry. Worth a visit if you need a break from the busyness of the city.
