Hiroshima - Japan

Hiroshima
City pop : 1.13M Metro pop : 1.8M

This city is about 400 years old,
and it has become to be a very important city in Japan.

Once, this city was destroyed,
but it didn't die.

Following pics show revived H I R O S H I M A.

the skyline is everything but spectacular but because this is the first time I see pix of modern day hiroshima and because I really like japanese cities (and because of pic 3) I give it a 7.5/10

another underlooked city. It has come a long way since it was leveled.

8/10

You should post some of the pictures from the other thread you created, these don't do the city much justice. Based on the other pictures I saw, I give the city's skyline an 8.0/10

What a beautiful setting! There's more to Hiroshima
than I imagined. Very densely built. Those were
phenomenal pictures! I give it a 6.5 due to its
relative lack of height, but great density.

Not much of a skyline but it looks like a compact, cool city. 6.0. The pictures of the missionairies in the second photo get a 10.

I was just in Hiroshima last month and I was impressed. Very modern and clean and very much so on a human scale similar to that of European and northern American cities. I was also impressed by Kure, Japan (about an hour south of Hiroshima).

It's pretty dense, but nothing that really stands out (from what i've seen in those pics anyways) ->7/10 I do like it, tho.
