With free admission and built at the vortex of the atomic bomb blast, this memorial is well worth visiting. You journey through a downward spiral to the bottom where records can be accessed of the victims. I didn't have enough time to explore fully and...More

They have a video screening room which screens video of the tragic event and real life account interview. We spent some time walking around the place reading up bite size information. There is a staircase which leads to a circular memorial showing tracing of buildings....More

A must visit - a place to contemplate and reflect on one of the most shattering events of the 20th Century. Very respectfully and tastefully done, with no sense of bitterness, just of loss and of hope for a better future.

This memorial aptly reminds of the people who perished after bombing by America during WWII. It also has pictures of people who died during the bombing. The very silence overpowers you with great sense of perils of nuclear war.

If you're at memorial park in Hiroshima then definitely take the time to visit this memorial. The memorial itself is simple and beautiful, and the library gives you an opportunity to see the faces of the people who were so effected by the devastation.

This is a direct memorial and tribute to the 140,000 innocents who died when America dropped the Atomic bomb on them. Unlike other spaces in the park and museum this has a hushed serenity about it

Although the site was under construction during the time of my visit, it was really informative and moving to see what happened during the time of the bombing. I learned a lot about the effects of nuclear war, its victims, and the about the bomb...More

This memorial is a must see. Free to enter. Does an incredible job remembering the victims of the atomic bomb and sharing their stories. May we never forget.

I suspect most people head for the museum as we found the memorial hall to be quiet and (as bizarre as it might seem) peaceful. It is a fitting memorial to those innocents who paid the ultimate price for the decisions made by their “leaders”...More

It won't take you more than 30 minutes to experience this site. Once you walk down to the center, take some time to read the brochures provided. The structure is very symbolic and a wonderful place to reflect and honor the lives lost as a...More
