In Hiroshima, at Shukkeien Garden, we saw hundreds of beautiful flowers. Such a relaxing and beautiful place. I'd recommend a visit this time of year, especially if you've visited the A-Bomb Dome and need some time to think, or something beautiful to look at. The garden was originally built in the 1620's, but was destroyed during the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Now, rebuilt, it provides visitors with some tranquility. There are tea ceremonies, though I didn't see any while I was there. There's a 100 yen discount for students, even college students, so bring your school id. The normal fee is 250 yen, I believe.
