Iwakuni (岩国), a small city of 150,000 people in southeastern Yamaguchi Prefecture, is best known for its structurally unique Kintai-kyo Bridge. Beautiful around the year, the bridge is particularly attractive during the cherry blossom season, which usually takes place in early April.

During the Edo Period, Iwakuni used to be one of the feudal domains of Japan. Its former mountain-top castle was reconstructed in the 1960s and counts to the city's other tourist attractions. Iwakuni is easily visited as a side trip from Hiroshima.
