★ If I take a foreigner to some tourist sights in Japan, I will recommend Hiroshima.  I have been to Hiroshima many times.  There are many places to visit.  For example, Matsuda doom stadium, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Yamato Museum, Miroku no sato, and so on.  We can watch baseball games in Matsuda Stadium.  It's very exciting.  Miroku no sato is an amusement park.  Most people can enjoy visiting there.  So I want foreign tourists to go to Hiroshima.
