Went with our G Adventures group and our guide gave us some of the history. We also saw the A bomb dome, peace bell and children's memorial as they are all within a short walk of each other. A peaceful place and definitely worth a visit. It was hard to imagine what happened there all those years ago.

A lovely open space where everyone is respectful and an eternal flame. At the river end of the park, as the dome comes into view is the Sadako statue and glass boxes containing the paper cranes. A lovely place.

This is a large park near the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Atomic Bomb Dome. There is a river, and a very beautiful fountain / monument. I was so impressed by the beauty, we were here at sunset and it is hard to express the power and beauty here. Large fresh arrangements of flowers, incense burning at several points at... More

We took the free public bus from the train station to all the main attractions including this park, which connects the Museum and the iconic shell of the domed building. The park has wide paved walk ways so it is easy to access for wheel chairs. We found it tranquil and bright and a great sense of hope and peace... More

this is a place of calm that I had to see,a strange ambition if you like. I was a baby at the outbreak of war in 1939 and in my teens I read just about every book I could about the39-45 conflict that we call the 2nd world war. It all seemed so simple, we fought, we won, game over,... More

This whole park with all its many deeply moving features really just must be seen. You can see everything, including the museum, in an hour if you're shirt if time - but go.

A highlight of my time in Japan. It's easy to tell that a lot of thought and care goes into maintaining the park so well; not a blade of grass is out of place. Quiet, peaceful, the perfect place for sombre reflection.

This is world history, it's not-to-be-missed. Because we live in Oahu part of the year (Pearl Harbor bombings); and because we've visited Kanchanabari in Thailand (where the Japanese undeniably used prisoners of war to build their railroad to Burhma), we were especially interested to see, firsthand, how the Japanese portray this horrific event. It's world history. It's not-to-be-missed.

The park is large, peaceful, green, and filled with an essence of sad remembrance and pain. There are LOADS of little memorials all meaning something special. There are free tours that I highly recommend - the locals are very well informed speak brilliant english and want to tell the story.
