It's a must visit this place; a little bit less visited that the museum, but it's interesting know anything about victims; the main hall it's quite thrilling, because while hearing the water sound I was imagining all the mess it was provoked by the bomb.

The only other time I have had this sense was at Yad Veshem the Holocaust memorial. What ever you do, of you are in Japan for more than a week, use the bullet trains, fly etc it will educate and aid your understanding of why Japan will never have nuclear weapons. We bought a JR 5 day West rail pass... More

The last stop before exiting they have survivors telling their story, and it was truly amazing to hear. Very sad, but I think it's a must.

Dedicated to the victims of the bombing, this simple indoor memorial is focused around a circular reflection room that has a huge mural depicting the post-bombing aftermath made of tiles - the number of tiles representing the number of victims. They also have an interactive display where you can read about the known victims - we searched by name and... More

This memorial has first-hand stories of atom bomb survivors. It mourns the victims of the bombing, and in the process, encourages a world of peace. A must-visit in Hiroshima.

When we went in November, the first part of the Hall was closed. This is the part that describes what the Japanese did in Asia pre-1941 and how the war was started in Asia Pacific. Without that portion of the Hall, one was left with a description of the horrors of atomic weapons. If not for the first part of... More

After visiting the peace museum, the memorial park and the children memorial, this is the last part dedicated to the atomic bomb victims, visit it in religious silence to respect the pain, the mourning and the losses..

Memorial centre with incredible whole room 360° view of how Hiroshima looked after the bomb. The best thing about this free attraction was the interactive exhibit at the end which focused on experiences by Japanese civilians and soldiers in the blast. Check out all the computers and books for people's stories. It's worth it!

Of the Hiroshima places I visited, this affected me the most. It was very somber as you walked down into it, then once you entered the building I think it was the simplicity of the design and the sound of the water that brought tears to your eyes. You sort of stood on the spot and turned around to be... More
