As the 6th Come to Hiroshima series, Cultural News present a free webinar on “History of Hiroshima Castle: From a fortress of warlord to a target of Atomic bombing” on Thursday, March 25 from 7:00pm – 8:00pm, PDT.
The original Hiroshima Castle was built in 1589 by warlord Mori Terumoto. Major area plan of the castle was completed by Fukushim Clan around 1600. The castle was occupied by Asano Clan for 250 years in Edo period. In modern Japan, the castle site was used as Army’s regional headquarters, and the caste became a target for Atomic bombing. In post war era, Hiroshima Castle plays a symbol of reconstruction of homeland.
