It’s a great way to see how the Japanese remember the event. The ceremony is very orderly and quite moving even if very little of it is translated into English. It really sets one’s mind towards peace, and educating visitors on nuclear deterrence.

Beautiful memorial and nice statue! It’s up on a hill so bring your walking shoes. It does however have an escalator and it’s stroller friendly.

It is easy peasy. So simple Leicester station is worse, I tried it. The tram is the best way but I took a bus as I purchased a full one day travel card from the bus depot. Have a great time there..I did enjoy every day
