It is unbelievable this is still standing considering how close it is to ground zero! Well worth a look.

This ruin conveys so much. Half destroyed and in the middle of a nicely planted park surrounded by rather modern buildings, it is hard to believe that 70 years ago, the atomic bomb exploded 600m above it. Survivors stick around to teach you how to fold cranes and to tell their stories. Bestregardsfromfar

It is not so much what is is but what it represents that makes this a must see in Hiroshima. It is all a bit hard to believe that it actually happened, So whilst being a tourist attraction it is more a place humans visit, take quiet reflection and think "this is why we should never do this again".

I would suggest that you go during the day and at night. I thought at night was better as it's light up and there are less people. It's a beautiful monument and a nice area to walk around.

For some unknown reason, this structure is largely intact, though very close to the detonation point of the Bomb. The information surrounding it is inspirational and in keeping with the message of peace. NOTE: In early April, 2015, much of the building was surrounded by scaffolding as it was being evaluated for stability and repair. This hindered some photo opportunities,... More

Amazing to see the dome in the midst of a modern city, a remnant of the atomic bomb. It is somewhat surreal. Tried to imagine what the area looked like, but could not, except for the photos I had seen.

There's not much more to add other than my pictures and a reminder to all...don't overlook the info guides outside offering free talks. There's an amazing man who was 'in uetro' on that fateful day. Quite a sobering thought.
