Lots of memorials to see

We went the day before the 70th anniversary. There were hundreds of scouts from all over the world for their jamboree. Despite that, outside of the museum had lots of room to... read more

This is not a great memorial, if you didnt know what it was you would just walk by a mound or earth with grass on it, as i guess many tourists do without realising the significance we did find a explanation sign but this really does warrant a special tribute

We stood wondering what this was in the middle of a Park, I confess I did have to ask. The mound is where the unknown and unidentifiable remains lay. Take a moment to remember those innocent souls that had their lives taken....

We went the day before the 70th anniversary. There were hundreds of scouts from all over the world for their jamboree. Despite that, outside of the museum had lots of room to roam about and see all the various Memorials. Well worth the visit

I didn't really know what it was when I was there but I saw a bunch of schoolkids go and look at it, so I thought I would as well. There was no grass when I was there. It was yellow.

This sad but elegant memorial sits amongst the many other records of the sadness, loss and destruction that afflicted this city at the end of the Second World War, unnecessarily , pointlessly and irrevocably.

I just saw a mound of earth that may be caused by the atomic bomb explosion that occurred in the area. But there is information that says that this mound is a collection of ash from an exploding atomic bomb survivors in this area.

This site should have been most powerful but its lack of care and execution took away its impact. On maps it's labeled "the Mound" and it appears to be just that, a mound of dirt covered in weeds. After visiting The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in America's capitol, I'd just think this site could offer more dedication, care and... More

It may not look like much but this area was certainly the most memorable for me personally. Made up of the ashes of the many unidentified bodies from the bombing it is a sad and lonely reminder of how many families did not get the comfort of knowing what happened to their loved ones and those with no one left...

It is not the beauty of a monument or the majesty of a statue, but what it has a historical and memorial almost second to none. The Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound is a large grass-covered knoll That contains the ashes of more than 70,000 unidentified victims of the bomb that day in a few moments swept away thousands of innocent...
