very interesting to view

It was covered in scaffolding when we visited, as they were testing the stability of the ruins. Still worth seeing

This dome and ruin is one of the last remaining pieces of the A-bomb disaster that ended world war 2. It remains an absolute horrible reflection to what mankind can do to each other. Never again!

This was covered with ugly scaffolding as they run "tests." Didn't see anyone working. Kind of disappointing but still near to see.

There were some construction scaffolding all over the structure so I did not get to see it in its original form. Probably another informative site. However, it looked like the contrcution should end by the end of March this year so keep this in mind.

The dome is under construction with scaffolding all over it. From the shape of it, it will probably turn out great. It is built on what is left of the government office that bore the brunt of the bomb. It is amazing any of it was left given the fact that the bomb hit right above it and killed 70,000... More

Impossible to think that the US had set a bomb of that magnitude over a children's school. And the fact that it is still standing today when the entire city was leveled really is mind blowing.

I was in Hiroshima for business, for the first time. From the train station--where I was staying--I took the tram to the A-Bomb Dome stop. The building was right there at the stop. I've seen very few things where I've had to stop to collect myself. This was one of them. Just incredible. I recommend going in the evening. I... More

Visited this monument a second time, this time with our son. A little disappointed that part of the A-Bomb Dome is covered with scaffolding and netting as they were doing some sound testing. However, that was an indication for our son to visit this place again in the future. The A-Bomb Dome is also known as the Atomic Bomb Dome... More

Getting of the train and seeing the skeleton of a once magnificent building puts the image of Hiroshima's history in perspective, its eerily beautiful and stands out in the absolutely green park around it. The small city of Hiroshima is also well worth investigating. A beautiful place with beautiful people. Also make sure to visit the museum!
