Castles were important sites of political power throughout the medieval and early modern periods in Japan. They were built by warlords in large numbers from the 1400s as fortified headquarters from which they ruled the surrounding regions. The castles sparked economic activity in the regions which often led to the creation of towns in their vicinity. More recent historical monuments include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park which commemorates the victims of the 1945 atomic bombing.
