The lasting remains of infrastructure are symbol enough of the destruction, but just as informative and impressive are the flyers and booklets out front meant to educate (not indoctrinate). Apolitical, factual, and self aware, this site does its job as a message of history without intention to politicize.

Seeing the Atomic bomb dome (the only building that remains from that fateful day) is both awe inspiring and haunting. You are provided information about the building, and you can read the stories about people who were there that day, and what ultimately happened to them. Nearby are memorials to the students who mobilized to help, as well as one... More

One of the few buildings near the hypocenter to remain standing, the Atomic Bomb Dome stands just across the river from the Peace Park as a stark testimony to the destruction of the atomic bomb. The Peace Park was constructed with the central path leading from the Peace Museum, past the Centograph, and directly to the Atomic Bomb Dome, really... More

Walking towards the peace memorial museum, one sights the bomb dome first right beside the river. The stark contrast of the lovely bright flowers growing outside to the dark, gloomy remains of this dome effectively communicate the passage of time and the spirit of the survivors. The dome marks the entry into this area of tribute and memorial sculptures.

That war is never right.. This is located at the Peace Park, just a bridge across. It's quite visible from the museum so you should spot it rather easily.

It really is quite amazing that there was one building left standing. It just doesn't make sense to see it there in the middle of the park.

This is one of the top sights in Hiroshima, and for very good reason. It is a stunning reminder of the atrocity that occurred and a must visit in Japan.

Although it is very close, some 200-300 meters from the hypocenter, this is the only building that survived the A bombing. Some say it's due to it's round design so the blast impact split around it. It was the Industrial Promotion Hall, some kind of a trade fair building designed by a Czech architect. Try to visit it at dusk... More

›e saw the building while driving. Its impact is a little diluted by the presence of many modern buildings around it. But it is still interesting to see it.

I came here as a day trip from Osaka. It is located near the tram stop. This is one of must-see when you visiting Japan due to the reason that everyone should know why. The best rated tourist attraction in Japan according to this website is actually the nearby museum which I didn't have enough time to get in. The... More
