This is a great place of high historical significance. The ruins of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in WW2 stand majestically in this beautiful park. It is an amazing sight. The gardens are also lovely and there are plenty of eateries nearby.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack, and to the memories of the bomb's direct and indirect victims. It is very quiet and peaceful around here. Located 2 minutes walk from the A-bomb Dome. There's also a museum you should check out right next... More

This place is not really a park where you come for a picnic and have lunch. It is peace memorial sign with lots of greenery and you have to pass through this park to get to the memorial museum. nice place to take pictures. right across the dome as well.

Most impressing is the statue of Mother and Children in the Storm. You can see a mother protecting her child. When I walked around the statue I noticed there was a second child trying to climb on her back. This statue - for me - is a tribute to all mothers protecting their children. Children of all ages in any... More

I am in trouble this time! I do not know too much what to say, because whatever you see there, at least, to me, gives a sad feeling. Reminds to the atrocities happened in the past

I was there as thick but light snow fell throughout the evening. There was some iconic features, like the children's artwork, peace clock, the flame similar to that in new york for 9-11. Nothing like Central Park as it was just numbing with stillness. Maybe because I went after the museum so had a solemn sensation hanging in me. A... More

a well laid out public space where you can walk at your own pace on a route of your own choosing to see the multiple memorials to those killed by the atomic bomb.

The peace park is a collaboration of monuments, beautifully sculpted pathways through the greenery and most memorably peace bells. The most popular bell at the park is over fifty years old but with a gentle knock you can send out a beautifully solemn yet hopeful sound across the park. The park quietly commemorates those who lost their lives while promoting... More

The Peace Park is a fitting tribute to both the horror of what happened and how Hiroshima has been rebuilt. The park and memorial is well worth a visit it is peaceful and yet moving as it tells the story of the dropping of the A bomb and what has happened since. Well worth a visit. The park is free...
