The Hiroshima Castle, also known as the Carp Castle, is a historical castle in Japan's Hiroshima prefecture. From 1591 to 1869, it was home to whoever was the city's Daimyo (Feudal Lord), among them are Mori Terumoto, one of the castle's pioneering men, and Asano Nagaakira, a first-generation Asano.
It was well-built and proved that it can mightily survive for centuries, it stood there until the heavy atomic bombings in August 6, 1945.
When it was re-constructed 13 years later, the replica became a museum of Hiroshima's history pre-World War II.
