Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine

Summary
Hiroshima Gokoku Jinja is a Japanese Shinto Shrine in Hiroshima, Japan. Overview The original shrine was founded in 1869, the first year of the Meiji period, in Futabanosato Hiroshima. The shrine was established to mourn the Hiroshima-Han victims of the Boshin War. In 1934, it was dismantled and moved to where Hiroshima Municipal Stadium now stands, and in 1939 its name was changed to the Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine. In 1945, it was destroyed by the atomic bombing, and was rebuilt within the confines of Hiroshima Castle in 1965 with the aid of donations from the citizens of Hiroshima. The Hiroshima Gokoku Shrine is one of the most popular places for celebrating Hatsumōde and Shichi-Go-San in Hiroshima.
