It’s nice to reflect on the past and after so many years the feelings evoke still remains the same. Overall for a good walk around the park and memorial as this is the main highlight of the city.

Go at night, or before sunrise also if you are visiting from US, easy as you are awake early anyways. Also go back at day. Nice to just walk around in the peace park on the other side of river and just contemplate.

This memorial is to look at from the outside only, but it's very interesting and touching to see it in real.

This is the first place the US dropped an atomic bomb. The dome is preserved the way it was when that happened, for the purpose of teaching us about the tragedy and telling us to never have a war again. With the knowledge of exactly...More

The a-dome ruin indeed tells a part of contemporary history. I thought it was a very touching experience combined with the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

This site really shows the horror of the a-bomb day. As others also wrote - do it in the dusk/dark time. Especially wintertime when the trees surrounding the site are without leaves, it makes it feel even more depressing/spooky. I also like the info signs...More
