In most articles about Obama's visit to Hiroshima, they say that the visit is the first to Hiroshima by a sitting U.S. president.

This implies that there may have been visits by presidents before or after their tenure in office. Have non-sitting presidents ever visited Hiroshima? If so, which ones?

Jimmy Carter has visited Hiroshima. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_visitors_to_the_Hiroshima_Peace_Memorial_Museum

This Forbes article mentions Carter but no-one else, suggesting he's the only one.
