Lovely feel about this entire area leading to the museum, and you can get some great shots back towards the Dome.
This park and the starkness of the dome , the beauty of the surrounds, the wonderful tributes and memorials make this an essential place if you visit Hiroshima. Along with the Peace Museum it will leave you emotionally raw as you feel the impact.
Websites and reviews will give you accurate information however seeing it for yourself is the only way to get the full EMOTIONAL experience. You can take photos but flash is not allowed. A must see if going to Hiroshima. Side note, Okonomiyaki in Hiroshima is delicious and restaurants are just outside of the park area.
We visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The places relives the untold sufferings and pain the people of Hiroshima had to go through as result of the Atom Bom Explosion of World War II. YNWA. 5 Stars (Without a shadow of doubt)

This should be a compulsory visit for the leaders of the world!
As previously said, this is a must see. Well set out over a large area with many things to see. Very peaceful and a call for peace. Very moving.

The 6th August 1945 marked the start of a whole new kind of total warfare and this Memorial Park is a stark reminder of that. One must not forget the atrocities that Japan inflicted upon its colonised... More
8:15 am, August 6, 1945 Some things are never spoken Some things are hard to heal A child’s need for love that is not there Beethoven’s funny hat and clothes He shunned companions near the end But gave us universal music instead Adolf and his kind tried to destroy us Nor the many twisted alleys that led nowhere A poet...

This is a part of the Hiroshima experience that I wish every citizen of the world could have. Before any more bombing is ordered by any political leader, I wish they would come here - see the results including the museum. We need to find better ways to resolve disagreements. Walking around the park is free and so worthwhile.
