A powerful silent tribute to the past and warning for the future. It is quite odd to see this juxtaposed against modern Hiroshima and needs to be contemplated in conjunction with other parts of the peace memorial and park. If you don't have a lot of time visit the victims memorial which is in a separate building to the museum... More

Peace Park and Museum The primary purpose of my visit to Hiroshima was to visit the Peace Park and Museum. I was not disappointed. The park is beautiful and a fitting memorial to those who died in the world' first atomic bombing of a city, carried out with no warning. I spent half a day walking around seeing the A... More

I've seen this image so many times in my life, but to actually be in front of it was something unforgettable and very moving. This is a lovely city and it's hard to imagine what happened that day, but it should never ever be forgotten.

Fascinating to view an actual structure left in tact from the time of the bomb explosion. Linking the Dome with the Museum where there are before and after photo's brings the horrors of war into context. A must for every person.

This is probably the number one reason to visit Hiroshima. One of the last reminders of the terrible atrocity of the WWII, it serves as a reminder of why war is such an evil. I could spend time here just watching it and admiring how the structure still stands to this day, and be sad about the lives that were... More

When you see pictures of the devastation after the bomb and see how few buildings remained standing, it is a very sobering experience. The Peace Park is well worth a walk around too, it is very ..... peaceful..... We took the Sightseeing Loop Bus from outside the Granvia at the station as we had JR passes so could get on... More

We visited the Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Dome and one would realise the innocent people that had to go through the horrendous day as well as watch their loved ones pass away as the result of the atom bomb explosion. Truly heart touching experience. Overall: 5 Stars

The white elephant in the room in Hiroshima is obviously the A bomb and they have embraced what they are now known for. The ground zero point is shown about 600m away above a hospital but this mangled dome was the only building left standing after that fatal day and was the place were everyone headed after the event to...

Must see place when visiting Hiroshima. This is one of the very few buildings left standing after the Atomic bomb. Happens to be very near the epicenter of where the bomb went off. The building is left in its original condition after the bomb went off. No trip is complete to Hiroshima without walking around the exterior of the building.... More

Every trip to Japan should include a visit to Hiroshima. The A Bomb Dome is what's left of an official building after the atomic bombing in 1945 and is a poignant reminder of the horrors of war and nuclear weapons. Calling it an "attraction" is the wrong word, but it is a testament to the resillience of the Japanese people... More
