Her area is the place that evoke most emotions. Seeing that so many children send drawings to this place. Her story is so sad. Ashe got lukimia a year after the bomb, believing that a thousand birds from origami will save her. She managed only 750... When she passed.

The Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu is a ways from the museum proper but don’t miss it. The park is very large but not that impressive. The museum itself is very interesting displaying many pictures of Hiroshima before and after the bombing. The museum is definitely not disabled friendly. We didn’t see any elevators or signs for disabled visitors... More

Obviously the major tourist attraction in Hiroshima, but this has been done to give respect to those who lost their lives and still are. The park is quite large and there are many memorials throughout it. The A-bomb Dome reminds us very vividly of the destruction wrought on this city. The quiet of the crowds around it shows respect.

Its important to see how a place has transformed. The view form inside the arch is very nice. You can see the flames and then the dome as well. Don't miss it.

This is probably the reason most visitors come to Hiroshima. The museum has artifacts and photos and facts that are quite confronting. My father-in-law was in the Australian Navy Occupational Force here and it is hard to imagine what he experienced witnessing the destruction of so many innocent lives.

After being duly impressed in Nagasaki, this memorial had even more impact. Not a place you go to for fun but something you need to experience. Done very tastefully and especially the memorial for the little girl with the paper birds makes you very quiet..

The Park is quite large. As one wanders about one finds many small memorials like a monument to the Koreans killed in the bombing, a monument to the students who were building fire breaks, and many more. Each one helps to render the abstract total of 150 000 dead to individuals. The guide boards are informative.

It was good to just walk about, see all aspects of the hypos centre of the nuclear blast and appreciate and learn more about it. The day was warm, the local eatery was superb.

No memorial can ever do justice to the many lives lost through war but this place is a beautiful tribute.

The Dome is the icon of the horrific dawn of the atomic age, and the museum is a sobering analysis of it, but the Peace Park individualizes it in a special way. The memorials to this girls school, that labor association, to the men and women who were working inside the Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall the instant it was incinerated,... More
