Shopping street. Maple leaf cake is popular here. There are many flavors. 
I loved the chocolate flavor.

This shopping street is not big. Both sides are full of souvenir shops and some restaurants.
If you miss buying souvenirs from here, you can buy them at Hiroshima station.

In the afternoon, I went to Bomb Dome (Peace Memorial Park) where is well-known place and has good atmosphere around that area
