Hiroshima Castle was the home of the daimyō (feudal lord) of the Hiroshima han (fief). The castle was constructed in the 1590s, but was destroyed by the atomic bombing on August 6, 1945. It was rebuilt in 1958, a replica of the original that now serves as a museum of Hiroshima's history before World War II.
The garden was designed in 1620 by Soko Ueda, a principle retainer of Lord Asano of Hiroshima, as a villa for his lord. The garden, lovingly referred to as "Sentei" by the people of Hiroshima before the war, was completely leveled as a result of the first atomic bombing in history. A large number of survivors took refuge here immediately following the bombing, but died before receiving medical care. Their remains were interred within the garden.
