A beautiful place to sit and people watch.

I love to set on the park benches near the river and people watch, lots of school children and locals out for a stroll. The sound of someone ringing the peace bell in the distance... read more

I love to set on the park benches near the river and people watch, lots of school children and locals out for a stroll. The sound of someone ringing the peace bell in the distance is very soothing. Very near to the Hondori shopping district and lots of restaurants..

Hiroshima Peace Park is a sacred place, and visiting it is nothing less than a modern-day pilgrimage. The site is worth the time and attention of every Japanese resident and visitor. The museum, in spite of being crowded and a tiny bit worn-looking (a good thing!), powerfully conveyed the scope and extent of the bomb's destruction. The dome was an... More

We had not originally intended to include Hiroshima in our Japan trip, but we decided to take a day trip from Osaka - which was very easy with the Shinkansen. A day was enough time in the town. We found the visit emotionally challenging, but we were very glad that we chose to go. The horror of that day in... More

One can't appreciate the reverence felt when visiting this park. From the A-bomb dome to the peace candle we were overwhelmed with awe and reverence. Take the time to visit all of the memorials in the park and be sure to cross the bridge which is supposedly the intended target and reflect on what took place here and hope that... More

The Hiroshima Memorial Peace Park just outside the museum is a must to visit. It is a beautiful park dedicated to the souls who lost their lives during the A Bomb attack in 1945. Its quiet large so give yourself ample time to walk thru it. There are many monuments to the children, the citizens of Hiroshima and Korean citizens... More

I enjoyed walking around this park. It is well maintained and peaceful. It is also centrally located in Hiroshima, so you can also visit hypocentre, cenotaph and museums nearby. Definitely worth a visit.

A place to breathe after the harrowing experience of visiting the museum. Walk to the Children's Memorial for a complete visit of this park.
