GPS Art of a Tiger on a Shrine Dedicated to the Memory of Hiroshima’s Heroes✨
Founded in the first year of the Meiji Era (1868), Hiroshima’s Gokoku Shrine was once located near the former Hiroshima Municipal Baseball Stadium, but was rebuilt on the site of Hiroshima Castle after being destroyed by the atomic bomb. The shrine is one of the most visited shrines in the Chugoku region, with 600,000 worshippers on the three days of the New Year. The local professional baseball team, the Hiroshima Carp, is also known to visit the shrine to pray for victory.
This is a GPS art course of a tiger, the animal of the Chinese zodiac, drawn around the center of Hiroshima City. There are many straight lines, making it perfect for a GPS run! This is also a great course for sightseeing in Hiroshima.
