It is very good that the Japanese left this building and did not demolish it. Also good to see a photo of it, shortly after the bomb.

The Atomic Bomb Dome was well worth the visit. Very eerie to be looking at all that remained after the bomb.

I spent about 3 hours here - exploring both the exterior and the museum. It was pretty informative and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. A must-go when one is in Hiroshima!

I walked here from the bullet train station (a long walk) and literally...you pop around a corner...and there it is. The story is well known as is the history...If you are in the area this is a must see.

A somber reminder of what was, and in today's world, what still is, unfortunately. When you are there, look at the iron staircase and wonder how anything survived. 3 days after the bomb, three trams were running, taking medicine and supplies to the survivors.

We visited twice and I preferred the evening visit as there was less people around so we had more time to reflect. You do get to see more detail during the day so we recommend two visits if timing allows

I do feel weird about rating this iconic structure because who would give it less than 5*? We have all seen pictures of this building. When you first see it in person with your own eyes it's a totally different feeling. I was struck by how small it is, especially how it is dwarfed by the high rises surrounding it... More

A great memorial to the horrific event and interesting based on all that was learnt in the museum to see a building so close to ground zero that survived Worth a double walk past both day and night if you are staying in the area.

This deserves a visit at night and during the day. There is no charge and it doesn't take long to walk around the building. At night the building is lit up so that you can see the inside. It is moving but sad.
