Hiroshima Castle was built by Mōri Terumoto, one of the council of five elders appointed by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. In the Edo period, it was used by the Fukushima clan and the Asano clan. The castle tower was designated as a national treasure in 1931, but it was later destroyed by the bomb. The castle was restored in 1958 and as part of its 400th anniversary in 1989, the interior was fully refurbished and now acts as a museum detailing the history and culture of Japanese samurai families.
