About city


Fukuyama is the second largest core city with a population of 460,000 located to the easternmost in Hiroshima prefecture. After the region had prospered as a castle town, the city began administrative operations as a modern city on July 1, 1916. Even though some areas were damaged during a war, Fukuyama has been thriving with modern heavy industry and local industry synergistically.

Now it is known as a leading coastal city of Seto Inland Sea.
