Very nice park to take a walk in and to visit the Atomic Dome and the Peace Museum. The Sightseeing bus has 2 stop there.

A very intensive experience of a sad act of human war efforts. It definitly gives you all the information about it from a very neutral point of view. Even if you are not interested in history nor the bomb, the park is beautiful itself and is nice to walk in and enjoy the spirit of the moment.

It is fine to have such memorial park for WWII but the government does not have repentance. No respect to Chinese, no sorry to the people died in WWII because of Japanese warlords's invasion. I do not like this.

Wherever we went there were reminders of the many that were lost and testaments to each other and the world that what occurred here would not be repeated. It was a humbling and emotional experience that certainly will not be forgotten any time soon.

Set in 12.2 hectares park, consisted of A-Bomb Dome, Museum, International Conference Center, Canotaph, Memorial Hall for Atomic bomb victims, peace statues, bended clock tower, ponds with beautiful trees and seasonal flowers. Good park to scroll and relax to feel the peace and blue sky. There was a small pier for cruise to Miyajima for 1000 yen.

I visited this at the end of December, and it is perfect for after the museum just to wind down. There are many memorials, take time to see them all.

After visiting the museum, one needs a place to sit, reflect and debrief. The Park provided this opportunity for me and my husband. We had both read John Hershey's Hiroshima and the combination of this account and the museum exhibit was a bit overwhelming. We needed to sit and reflect

I think this park serves it purpose. It's a nice place to walk around and remember the horrific war.

This large, peaceful, leafy park is home to various memorials to the victims of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, including, the Cenotaph, Flame of Peace, Children's Peace Monument and Korean Atomic Bomb Memorial, each of which has its own moving story to tell. The Cenotaph and Flame of peace are also aligned with the Atomic Bomb Dome across the... More

The part itself is fairly sombre and sterile. Some of the plaques and displays are worth looking at, however plan your visit around the museum and other attractions rather than the park visit.
