One of the most popular tourist stops is the Peace Memorial Park and Museum in Hiroshima, Japan.
President Obama's visit to that city is currently putting it into the spotlight.
I visited Hiroshima in 2004 as part of the first G-TOUR that was sponsored by G-FAN magazine.

(CNN) —More than seven decades after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, effectively ending World War II, President Barack Obama is set to become the first U.S. president in history to visit the site of the attack on Friday.
The president's visit shines an even brighter spotlight on what's already one of the most popular tourist attractions in Japan.
According to figures released in April, nearly 1.5 million people visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in 2015 -- the year that marked the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing.
The number of international visitors has risen by 44.6 percent to 338,891 -- a record high.If one is interested in history, particularly World War II history, a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum would be worthwhile.
