It is a large park with many school children on scene. I sat by the river and did some people and ferry watching - across from Atomic Bomb Dome. Relaxing.

This park is the ground zero of the A bomb, about a block or so. There is a funny T-bridge on the river next to it and the literature said that was the target of the American bombers. I doubt if they have such precision those days. The park is about a block square and in it you have the... More

The park is really beautiful and nicely laid out. I think it will be more meaningful if you have a tour guide as they share so much history and information that gives a bigger educational value.

The Peace Memorial Park and Museum are well worth a visit, a beautiful place with an understandably eery feel. The park can get very busy during the day as it is a regular site for school trips from across Japan. If you are looking for a quieter experience and a chance to reflect on the events that happened there then... More

This park is beautiful and worth the walk AFTER visiting the museum as you have a better understanding and time to reflect on the events that happened in Hiroshima. I left a paper crane at the Children's memorial and saw the mound of ashes of those who perished. After this, take a stroll down the toward the A-bomb Dome.

Seing Sadakos place on the park was soo emotional!! I have read the book of her history a few years ago and I fell in love with it. Then seeing all the origamis made by children and the Atom Bomb monument was really meaningful! ❤ If you come to Japan don't miss Hiroshima and Miyajima!!!
