It is a powerful image when you walk through the park and see this building that you have seen in the media many times. And to think - when the bomb exploded above Hiroshima, it did so above the Genbaku dome - which, despite the catastrophic devastation across Hiroshima - was able to retain its shape.
It is a beautiful and meaningful experience, to simply walk around the Dome. Most people are silent as they take in the significance of such a site. It is a reminder of the tragedy of war, but also a very powerful symbol of peace and restoration.
