Situated in the center of Hiroshima and reaching to within one block of the Hypocenter (Ground Zero), this park holds many of the most popular and photographed sites dedicated to the memory of the victims of the A-Bomb which exploded at 08:15 on 6 August 1945: the Fountain of Prayer, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Cenotaph for the Atomic Bomb...

Very poignant and thought - provoking. The different plaques and monuments contribute to the cosmopolitan feeling in Hiroshima. The A-bomb was inflicted on humanity as a whole and the park reflects that wonderfully.

An important place in world history. Beautifully kept gardens with many monuments and of course the A Bomb Dome remains lie in the park.

A really nice place to walk around and soak in the history. They have made such a beautiful thing out of all the destruction and pain - it's really touching. Although, we got targeted by christian preachers. They weren't intrusive, just it took ages to leave them, s we lost out in some time in the museums.

There are lovely gardens, sculpture, fountains all memorializing the thousands of deaths, yet all standing for peace and as a warning that these weapons extract a horrible cost.

Lovely manicured park. Interesting right angled road bridge with tasteful reminders of that fateful day. Bring a colourful origami crane to hang with the others.

The care and thought put into this park has created a perfect memorial for the tragic events of 1945. Walking through the park is short, peaceful stroll.

The peace park is a heritage site and its a pleasant stroll down it with a volunteer guide practicing his English while explaining the various landmarks there. The garden clock on the ground is a must see as are the loads of garlands made of origami cranes which are an ode to peace in the world
