This unique place is perfect to remember and understand more clearly what cruelty has happened due to mankind. This is a must do for all visitors. Keep these memories in mind for that it won’t ever happen again.
This is a classically moving world war atrocity site (like European concentration camps, Gallipoli, Pearl Harbor etc etc).

Within the Peace Promanadem and surrounding the peace memorial museum and wonderful Peace Hall is the park.
The park is an open area where you can stroll through and contemplate the horror of the bomb as you make your way to the dome.
We were the only Americans visiting the park the day we were there. It was very well done. Enjoyed the walk through and all the statues and explanations. Every American needs to visit there just to be reminded of how far we have come.
It’s a pleasant walk round several iconic memories of a world tragedy. They’ve made a good job of preserving the dome as it ended up after the bomb dropped and if you make a visit to the museum, which is only a 5 minute walk...More

I speak Japanese and I thought the public transportation was complicated for me so I can imagine for non Japanese speakers will have more difficult time. I suggest to take a cab since the time is usually limited for those people who stop by the big ship and it's better to walk around the Peace park and feel what actually happened. The must see site there is Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and the park and the dome. To go through the museum will take about 1 hour or more. Walking around the park and to get to the Dome which is aligned to the Peace Memorial will take about another hour. Cruise ship usually have a land tour so maybe you should take one of those. Also the must see site Hiroshima area is Miyajima Island shrine which is Japanese National Treasure. It's 1/2 hour train ride and then need to take a ferry which is pleasant. That's another half and hour. In the island you can stroll around the shrine it's a small area so you only need probably 1-1.5 hour. Be aware of deer because they follow you and put their head in you bag and start to eat stuff!
