One has to see this to understand it. Imagine you go to work one day, a bomb goes off destroying your city, including your building. We arrived late afternoon and the late aft sun lit it up soulfully. There is not an "attraction" here, we just found it best to wander around it and contemplate. Despite whatever circumstances of the... More

We were very moved at this historical place. The whole park teaches us about World War 2. But to see an actual framework structure of what was left from the bombing was very impactful. The Japanese were very insiteful to keep this as a memorial. It is amazing how devasting the bomb was, but now the city around it has... More

Every visitor to Hiroshima should visit this place which reminds us how damaging war can be. There were lots of school children there on the day we visited, some doing an assignment, asking visitors questions etc. It was good to see children coming here on school excursions as part of their education.

So glad that this has been left as a memorial to the terrible events of 6th August 1945 . These things have to be left as a symbol of the stupidity of mankind . So pleased to be able to come and see this and pay my respects

Quite sobering, this is an easy attraction to visit that brutally shows the effects of the atomic bomb. Located near the museum, I recommend combining the two in the one visit.

I was already curious about learning more about the atomic bomb catastrophes that occurred in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as I was taught about it in my school days. The Atomic Bomb Dome houses the only building that is left (well some of it is left) till date from those gloomy days. There I found a Japanese person who claimed his... More

The A Bomb dome is a very humbling place to experience the first atomic bomb dropped location. It is amazing to see the only building left in its original condition after the war. It is a must for people to see and understand that Nuclear war there is no winner. The are many other parks, places, temples in the areas... More

The photos say it all. If in Hiroshima you must see, but of course, why else would you come here. The walk along the river is not as well kept as expected.

I doubt anyone on a visit to Hiroshima will miss this, or the Peace Park. A reminder of the horrors of war.
