Not a lot to it but the picture speaks more than a thousand words. Nice to see something that looks very realistic of what was left. Well kept hedges and lawn with high black railings around at to the drama of the site in the park.

an amazing initial view as we walked down the memorial gardens. Seeing the before and after photos made the dome more incredible. It's hard to articulate how you feel when you view these things. I was overcome with a heavy feeling of sadness for all the suffering endured. The entire area is a must see.

Clearly it was this site that brought us to Hiroshima. A lot of feelings are felt as you walk by, observe and think about history. While there are many people visiting at once from different beliefs, cultures and theories of this event, overall there is no level of disrespect for anyone who visits. Sometimes the older Japanese will looks mysteriously... More

As a monument to the blast, it has been kept very well. A terrible reminder of the power of atomic weapons and of how destructive wars can be. Worth stopping by here on the way to / from the Peace Museum.

It is unbelievable that that is building survived the atomic blast. It is located in a beautiful park at the back end of the Peace Memorial Museum. We visited the Dome first however I think most people would have a better understanding of how is Dome survived the blast by visiting the Museum first. I understand that is lit up... More

The Atomic Bomb Dome gets 5 stars because of its significance. As a "tourist" site it is rather trivial, just a half demolished building. But all of us must stand, stare, and think about what caused the war, how it grew, how it ended, and the unimaginable suffering for the hibakusha, the bomb victims. Should bomb have been dropped or... More
