Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims is free and just as its name states. The Hall of Remembrance contains 140,000 tiles representing the number of people who died.Three is a 360degree panorama as seen from the Shima Hospital, the hypocenter of the bombing. In the center is a fountain asa clock at 8:15 am —the time the bomb dropped. From March 1, 2024 to February 28, 2025 there is a special video exhibit about the 4000 Akatsuki Corps; very very interesting and captivating.

I appreciated that all attractions related to the Atomic Bomb incident of August 1945 are all in the same location. This makes the visits more accessible to the visitors.

Be sure you visit this attraction and others that are in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Interesting and informative exhibits on the effects of nuclear bombs!

On our second day in Hiroshima we visited the Peace Memorial Park and this museum that focused on the victims. Here are several important points: Japan accepts responsibility for beginning the war; Japan does not condemn the United States for dropping the bomb; Japan is committed to stopping the use of nuclear weapons above all. Although the victims are remembered, the testimonies of the survivors are incredible and invaluable. As in many disasters, the survivors sense a guilt for having survived while family and friends perished. Last but not least, attention is given to the non-Japanese who perished including American prisoners of war, foreign students from China and Malaya, and religious missionaries.

Everything is so close together on the island that you may as well go inside here. A beautiful sombre reflection room is at the bottom. Elevator for access.

We visited this memorial after going through the Peace Museum, and it further reinforced our resolve to support the end of nuclear weapons worldwide. The memorial's huge, circular Hall of Remembrance displays a panorama of the bombed city as seen from ground zero. Made with 140,000 tiles to represent the estimated number of victims, who died by the end of 1945, the scene left me both sad and reflective.

The panorama appears on the wall's top half and a list of the 226 neighborhoods in Hiroshima at the time of the bombing are listed below. Twelve pillars of light symbolize the hope for peace and support the ceiling. The memorial also holds a victim information area with their photos and names.

A fountain at ground level has been set up around the memorial to symbolize the desperate need that the blast victims had for water. A modern sculpture appears here, featuring a clock, stopped at 8:15 a.m., the time of the atomic-bomb blast on Aug. 6, 1945.

One of the newer additions (2005) to the Peace Park, this memorial is free to enter. It is located in the Peace Park, north of the museum and east of the Cenotaph, by the Motoyasu River.

This is the most serene of museums with a wonderfully respectful atmosphere throughout the facility The building is straightforward to navigate with a good mix of educational and thought provoking exhibits. Some of the videos describe the vets in graphic detail so there is some discretion required

This simple yet incredibly effective memorial hall is a personal memorial to all those thousands of individuals who died. The underground circular hall, in muted light, which shows the devastation immediately after the bomb will bring you close to tears. To hear stories of individuals and testimonies is heart-breaking. This is also where people can go and try to find out more about loved ones who died. An essential part of any visit to the Memorial Peace Park area.

To the tens of thousands who lost their lives, their names and details that have been collected together and will never be forgotten. The subterranean hall gives a 360-degree view of the devastation that resulted.
