This is a beautiful park, sculpted and manicured as a living memorial to all those people who lost their lives as a result of the A Bomb which fell on this city in 1945.

lovely park with many memorials, one that brought tears was the memorial for Sadako with origami cranes cherishing the memory of a girl who died from raditation poisoning. During our visit, there were groups of japanese school children ranging from elementary to middle school. They were lined up in their group ( different schools and classes ) and the would... More

This park is very effective in reminding all visitors of the need to argue against the use of nuclear weapons. The peace bell, the children's (paper crane) monument, the 'eternal' flame, the cenotaph, pond and fountains all form an axis between the atomic bomb dome across the river and the museum at the other end of the park. Take the... More

Wonderful park with many monuments and memories of people affect by the bomb. Walk from the museum end to the building end to get a good view of all the memorials.

This is a must see twice - in the daytime and nighttime. The memorial architecture is in perfect harmony - the arch, fire, water, and remaining ruins of a building. Pictures do not do justice to what the naked eye sees. While terrorism and wars continue, this is a nice escape to what we hope can one day be reality... More

Peace Memorial Park is just as its name implies - a peaceful haven in the midst of the city, a place to reflect and remember all the poor souls who lost their lives in the devastation. When we visited the park, there were lots of visitors, mainly small groups of families and friends, but it did not feel crowded. The... More

An embarrassing lesson. When you visit the museum (entry 1USD) pictures, videos, objects you do travel to the bottom yourself and then check out the great and small that is the human being. There are volunteer guides who speak English and the space is very well laid out. Amazing!

It is simple but effective in showing the location of where the bomb exploded. The simple concept tries to display the area, taking for granted that everyone knows what happened there.
