I took picture of my wife there. What we saw and felt will be always in our mind and will be transmitted to all we know. It reminded me of the horrors of war which I experienced personally as a child and young man.

Being there is amazing and seeing what people went through at this time is very sobering. A must place to visit

Its only a two minute walk from the Atomic dome site but worth seeing. There is only a plaque on the side of the street opposite a car park describing how the bomb was detonated 600 meters above the spot you are standing on.

Salute to Japanese people who preserved this painful history well but to be remembered. Hope everyone thinks what can you do for world's peace and teach the true history to our children.

This is the place where an atomic bomb was exploded 72 years ago. Now there is only a panel of explanation on the site and nothing else. Genbaku Dome is actually about 160m afar.

The a-bomb swept down the whole area of Hiroshima--you would see stunning evidence of the Atomic Bomb Dome just nearby--but, this single spot, quiet and subtle, is just equally adequately powerful to tell the entire story. 600 metres above this spot, 3,000 degrees Celsius of...More

It was very powerful to be in the actual place where history was made in 1945. I think that the Japanese made a very good decision to leave the Atomic Dome area as it is as a reminder.

A definite visit to this place when in hiroshima. Travel by tram or bus and come here to pay homage to the ones departed
