The Peace Park and Memorial museum are a must see for all visitors to Japan. An extremely emotional journey. From the Atom Bomb Dome through the Rose Garden and the Memorial Museum, all are very confronting and thought provoking. The staff and the volunteers in the museum are amazing...they deal with a very tough subject with grace and diplomacy. The... More

Hiroshima memorial park and the peace memorial museam is a place that MUST SEE in your life time. It's very emotional and feel like how rude and what a tragedy can happen during the war. It comes to mind that how much a war can turn people to inhuman and what a damage can be done. Within 10minutes inside the... More

After visiting the Hiroshima peace memorial museum I went to visit this famous park and was a deep emotion to walk here where 70 years ago there was one of the greatest tragedies of mankind. In this park there are numerous memorials also walking along the river where you can see the famous Atomic Bomb Dome. Very touching experience

Everything about this place is devoted to preserving memories -- memories of the dead and the survivors alike. The park succeeds in fostering a contemplative attitude. You will not be the same when you leave.

The park around the ground zero point at which the atomic bomb was aimed, including the "A-Bomb Dome" -- the ruin of the former Industrial Promotion Hall, should not be missed. There are now smaller memorials to the several groups of peoples who were wiped out by the bomb (including POWs and Koreans forced into labor) and the park itself... More

The main reason for our visit to Hiroshima was to see the memorial. The main Administrative Centre that was 600metres below the actual bomb when it detonated is still partially standing, although everything else was basically levelled within a three km radius. The ruins of the building have been stabilised and remain as they were post-H Bomb as a memorial... More

Well done memorial. Within the museum, get the tour guide. Heavy for me at some points - too many 'children' stories at one time - all the suffering from the children and not mention of the soldiers/military that was being aimed at - but overall, good teaching space to learn of the history of the events.

They say there are 50 sculptures within the park, each with a different focus of respect for victims or survivors of the bombing. We observed several with the assistance of a wonderful local guide. Three highlights were the self reflecting bell, the peace cranes of Sadako, and a surviving tree showing its burn mark but alive nonetheless. The layout of... More

Especially the monument for the children, displaying the folded paper birds from all over the world (constantly renewed).
