Nice shrine inside Hiroshima castle block area. There are small souvenir shop just nearby the shrine where you can get Hiroshima crafts and souvenirs. You can also get some Omikuji (fortune telling charm) or wishing charm here.

we visited gokoku twice. the first time was around 4pm and we were turned away from goshuincho, which is surprising as it was kind of early to be closed. the second time we managed to get goshuincho.
shrine grounds are nice, its a good shrine to visit if youre near the castle!
