Hiroshima YMCA Japanese Language Course

The school is located in the heart of Hiroshima, the largest city of Chugoku and Shikoku region. The city is well-known for its tragic history of world's first atomic bombing in 1945, and has become a symbol of world peace and hope thanks to the huge reconstruction efforts of the forerunners after the WWII.

Now, Hiroshima has grown to be one of the most popular destinations in Japan because of touristic sites such as Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima castle and the famous Miyajima which can be also found in the same prefecture.

You will also enjoy the scenery with streetcar which is a very convenient means of transportation in the compact city where you can find everything you need.
