We had to make a visit here after visiting the one at Nagasaki last year. Similarly, the visit evokes deep emotions....running through and seeing the exhibits....its a wonder why destruction and suffering can be so profound. A good 2-3 hours to slowly stroll and soak in the atmosphere. Educational and good for kids to experience.

Its right at the exit of the peace museum. Its quiet, its sad and emotional. Its a great reminder of the tragedy caused by the war. Please keep in mind when you visit this place, do not joke or fool around. Its a place we should all show respect.

A very moving and disturbing setting, where the atomic bomb exploded. A place of memories and profound sadness. The Japanese people describe it with awe and disbelief. A place that will never be forgotten

After our visit to the peace museum we literally stumble into the Peace Memorial Park, which is huge and the exit of the museum guides you to the main walkway of the park towards the Memorial Cenotaph. Continuing to the Children's Peace Monument and the main Memorial, the Atomic Dome. There is more to see but for us, it was... More

With the autumn foliage in November and the cool weather, it made for a very pleasant and peaceful walk around the park.

Spent the day here, which was enough time to absorb all of the relics, listen to stories, watch videos and observe the locals. The children's memorial is always busy as huge school groups queue to pay their respects and leave their colored cranes for peace. This is a sad place, sometimes seeming cold and featureless but nevertheless a highlight of... More

There was a little bit of snow around the day we visited and it seemed fitting that it was a cold and crisp day. After you've seen the museum you can wander around the park and up to the a bomb dome. Cafe ponte in the north east of the park has good Orange juice if you need a break.

We were fortunate in having a private tour with one of the survivors. He was in utero and was fortunately on the outskirts of Hiroshima when the bomb exploded. Many of his relatives died during and shortly after the explosion. He had an album with many photos and inside stories to relate. The museum is first rate and very moving.

I've wanted to visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial since I was a little girl reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. It's such a testament to the Japanese people that a place that was so devastated is now a beautiful memorial. Very moving.

This park is home to the Peace museum, memorial to the victims, cases filled with thousands of paper cranes made by children from around the world and beautiful trees and gardens. A moving place to spend a few hours.
