The Chugoku region is situated in the southwest corner of Honshu, the largest of Japan’s islands, and it’s bounded to the north by the Sea of Japan, with the Seto Inland Sea running along its southern coastline.

Around seven and a half million people live within Chugoku’s five prefectures, the largest of which is Hiroshima. The Hiroshima prefecture is home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Genbaku Dome, a memorial to the tens of thousands killed by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima city on 6 August 1945 and The Itsukushima Shrine, a 16th century Shinto shrine where the iconic torii gate appears to float on water at high tide.
