This skeleton of a building is all that remains in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on August 6, 1945, and serves as a symbol of both the horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.

The atomic bomb dome is the remaining building where the hypocentre of the atomic bomb blast was near. It survived and is in damage but still evident what building it was. When we where there it was undergoing a structural integrity check so not clearly visible all around but still moving. Worth the visit. The park grounds around it very... More

As others note, this is a must see. They have it under scaffolding to check the structural integrity. The signs apologizing to visitors for the dome's appearance seem a bit ironic when read by an American visitor.

Everything about Hiroshima advocates peace and despite the dome currently being under scaffolding, one is still left with the impression it's meant to deliver. One of the few buildings left after the bomb was dropped is being maintained to ensure that it stands as a reminder to us all of the horrors perpetrated by humankind.

We are home now after a 2week visit to Japan (Our Son lives there) and we travelled for12 days looking at cities and places various. Many rivers were crossed, many Shrines were admired and even strange? food was eaten (strange by Essex standards anyway), of all the places we visited ,none were more atmospheric than Hiroshima and the Atomic Bomb...

This building made an impact on us as a family. My children are studying the causes and effects of WWII, and information is great, but the reality of seeing the shell of a building spoke volumes. The information in the display boards was clear and concise and the message that reminds us to reflect on the causes, but work towards... More

An incredible monument left as a monument to a dark time. I stayed for a couple of hours around sunset shooting pictures from all angles in varying light, but I'm not sure any of them truly do it justice.

You can't miss this. It's not just Japan's history, it's world history. It's amazing to see how the city has re-invented and re-built itself around this, the sole surviving structure after the world's first nuclear bomb. I appreciate that they have preserved this symbol, this testament to the survival of the human spirit. I'm so appreciative of he opportunity to... More

This dome has certainly captured the attention of many - it is beautiful in many ways. It seems to have stood because the force was primarily downwards rather than sideways. You can not go up to or inside the building and it is being renovated to keep it for the future.

For me it was very sobering seeing this preserved relic of the atomic bomb. I think it was a wise choice to keep the building standing and all should see it to get a feel of the power of the bomb

the best thing to see in Hiroshima is the Peace Memorial Park. This stretch has a series of memorials dedicated to various parts of Japanese history, from the A-Bomb Dome building, to the Peace Park itself used to be the political and commercial heart of the city. The A-Bomb Dome, also known as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, is what remains... More
