Stand and wonder at the misery here 70 years ago

Take your time to stand and ponder life here and what it must have been like 70 years ago. Its close to the peace museum and park so head there afterwards

You can't be unmoved by the sight of the only building left standing after the bomb exploded above the area. The 'before' and 'after' photos at the site show the devastation. Many parties of Japanese school children were being lectured by guides - I would have loved to have understood what was being explained.

It is sad to see the history directly in front of me. It make so much more sense after visiting the Peace Memorial museum first.

This building gives people an idea of the magnitude of the destruction caused, and it is not far from the museum. Visit it if you can.

We made a special trip to visit the A-bomb building and it's something that I hope never to see this again to anyone or country. The building is maintained to keep the original structure as a memory of what happened in WWII.

A stark reminder of the events of 1945. Preserved as a reminder. There are books there that give you information about the time and events.

Being a High School Teacher for the Deaf, I teach Social Studies, I had to stop by Hiroshima to see for myself the ugliness of Nuclear bomb. It was a rather an emotional visit for me. I cried. And Ipaid my respect for those who perished. May G_D bless their soul.

I first saw the Atomic Bomb Dome on an episode of the American Amazing Race. At that time, I was overwhelmed with emotion and visiting the Atomic Bomb Dome became a must for my bucket list. When I actually visited the dome, I was a bit disappointed. The Dome was undergoing construction and seeing the dome in-person did not have... More

Since this is a building that had been standing at the time when tragedy struck, we obviously had to see it. It is fenced off yet one can still get a good look of the ruins. Can be seen from all areas of the peace park so easy to find.
