A person could spend a full day in this sobering museum. The exhibits and videos are first class. The authentic letters and documents from government leaders leading up to the explosions are outstanding.

Very nice memorial. No cost or charge to view and stroll around. Located in large park. Worth visiting when in the area and as part of the museum.

Good to walk around and read the various explantation boards. Quite a beautiful memorial to such an awful event.

Although the main museum is undergoing a major renovation, a small section is still open to view artifacts and very moving recorded testimonial recollections of bomb survivors. Melted roof tiles highlight the intense blast of heat and remnants of schoolboy uniforms remind viewers of the...More

We visited here in winter and with all the little reminders of the war it was still contemplative and beautiful.

A picturesque park with various meaningful attractions such as the Peace bell and flame - views across to the dome

This park is the perfect background for this trip into one of the darkest moments in the history of manking, the matrix in which all the monuments are embedded.

To be here in Hiroshima is a somber reminder of the devastating impact of war. The Peace Park Memorial reminds us that we should never let this happen again.

Hiroshima is flat. The Peace Park is flat. Very easy to get around.

The park is open all through the year. But the A-bomb museum is closed on New Year's day.

2 days in Hiroshima/Miyajima (5 Replies)
My friend and I are arriving in Hiroshima via the JR Rail Pass on Monday July 5th between 2-3 p.m and leaving for Himeji on July 7th between 11-12 a.m. I would like to spend most of Monday afternoon at the Peace Memorial Park to visit the sites and Tuesday will be spent on Miyajima Island. Could someone help me organize an itinerary? Are Hiroshima Castle, Shukkeien/ Prefectural Art Museum feasible in this allotted amount of time? I would like to maximize my time. We are staying at the...More

In my opinion, your Monday afternoon time will be barely enough time to visit the Peace Museum and the Peace Memorial Park. You might want to go back to the Peace Memorial Park on Tuesday morning, and then go to Miyajima. (Not a big deal, since the museum admission fee is nominal.) Given your limited time, I would not go to Hiroshima Castle at all. If you have extra time (maybe before you leave for Himeji on Wednesday), you could make a quick trip to Shukkeien garden, which is small and very...More

We are staying the last 3 of our 8 days trip in Osaka; we are going to have H+K 5 day pass. We are mainly interested in Hiroshima peace memorial, Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima, and Bikan Historical Quarter in Kurashik. Do you think we can make this in a one day journey? Thanks!

No, that will be way too rush. Hiroshima and Miyajima takes the whole day. Rather than rushing it through and squeezing Kurashiki in, take your time in Miyajima and add Mt. Misen and Daishoin Temple.You won't regret it.

That looks like a nicely paced trip. Matsumoto is really stunning so I always recommend visiting there, even though the journey can be a bit long. The monkey park is the summer months often has no monkeys/few monkeys visiting but you can check their facebook page to see whether or not monkeys arrive each day
