This is the place where our world changed in an instant. We can not second guess what was going on during the WWII at the time, but the decision was made and history is still trying to understand. Looking at ground zero and seeing the building that remains, and then seeing the pictures of the city of Hiroshima before and... More

The park is a great place to take a stroll through and pay your respects at several points in the park.

Park is laid our nicely as it feels like a very peaceful place. Within park there are several monuments remembering the war, but most importantly the importance of lives lost. There is English explanations throughout.

A peaceful place as the name suggests. This is in the area between the A Bomb Dome and the museum. Was here on a rainy day and it was still a nice spot to enjoy.

A lovely space which is peaceful, in the middle of the busy city. The iconic dome stands there as a lasting memorial and we were able to talk to some teo people who were just born when the bomb was dropped. They have written out their stories in many languages and sit and help you make origami cranes. The flame... More

The site has is both quiet and peaceful while packed with many monuments to look at. Each makes you understand the fact that the history of the world is marked by the cruelty of man towards other men. It is the goal of this park to educate the world to find a path towards peace and goodness toward each other.

Large park with many memorials to look at and reflect. Visit early or evening for photos. Not crowded and opportunity to ring the Peace Bell too. There is a little local playground adjacent and near the wharf where the little ones can play too and meet locals.

This place is such a special one with a very sad history. The park is very peaceful and school children are hanging garlands with origami at the memorial sign for all the children who died during the attack. This is something you can not skip when in Hiroshima!
