Beautifully moving experience. I found Hiroshima a lovely city that has made peace the forefront of its city.

This was a highlight when visiting Hiroshima. You feel a sense of peace amongst such a reminder of tragedy. There is an insane view over one of the only buildings to survive an atomic bomb, and it is a piece of great architecture

Amazing views of Hiroshima and the peace memorial park
Oct 2019
A wonderful observation deck and some floors of interactive activities including paper crane making where you get to drop it into a huge window and it falls several floors.

Your day ticket also gives you free entry for the evening where a bar is opened and there is a wonderful ambient setting to enjoy a peaceful drink.

Fantastic experience!!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
My girlfriend, dad and brother went here just to check out the rooftop that we noticed from the street. We didn't know that they had a number of other things included with admission. We had a wonderful time and we're very impressed!! The Japanese girls working there treated us extremely well and taught us oragami. Then they introduced us to a guy named kevin who worked there. Talked with him for a while and it was great asking him questions about life in Japan, as he was from the United States and were interested in his story. Super awesome person!!!! Then we got to take the slide down from the top down! Really cool! I would definitely come back here again!!! Highly recommended!

A must do whilst in Hiroshima
Mar 2020 • Couples
A must if you are visiting Hiroshima. This location is so much more than just an observation deck over the A-bomb dome and skyline of Hiroshima; it is a place for reflection and celebration of peace. You will learn how to make an Orizuru (paper crane) and then set it free from the see thru floor side if the tower. There is also an interactive exhibition where you can learn about the site then and now and how Hiroshima has developed and progressed since 1945. A quirky end to your visit; you will have an option to go down to the ground floor via a spiral slide (optional) Ground floor has a great souvenir shop as well as a really good restaurant serving the local dish; okonomiyaki (vegetarian option also available)

Peaceful and powerful

Simply, this is a must-see and must-experience. As another reviewer said, this is not a typical city observatory. The architects and designers did a beautiful job creating an environment to observe and think about peace. It's clear that those who created the observatory deck and tower envisioned a place for people to reflect--the deck, made of wood with cushions--is an incredible place to view Hiroshima.

We intended to have some time here, but we ended up lingering far longer than we had planned. The observation deck is stunning, the activities inside the tower will engage the whole family, and the food--both on the snacks available on the deck level, as well as more substantial food on the ground floor--was good quality.
We went in the day, but I wished that we could have come back to experience the tower in the evening as well.

As others have noted, there were discounted admission prices if passports are shown (but not sure if this is still offered).

We highly recommend this, especially after time at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

This photo does not do it justice. This place is beautiful. The outside is so simple and classy. You can eat or hang out side or you can sit inside where there is a restaurant. The seating there is truly unique. There is a mini shop within if you want to buy handmade jewelry or make up brushes. There is even a food sampler there to give you samples of their oysters....which they are known for. If that doesn't do it for you the staff are extremely nice and they had me laughing thee entire time. I walked up the stairs (all 12) When you get to the 19th floor you get to make a paper crane and make a wish. My fav part was the top. I love the scenery, The flowers on the ceiling and the giant bubble you can eat and relax in. The flowers in vases just make me smile all day because that is Japan in a nutshell simple and pretty very serene. I enjoyed this place. It was my favorite part about my trip!! I am def going back

Start your day here!

Start here for a great view of the dome from above. History of the building too. Make a paper crane and drop down along the building. 1st floor has reasonably priced souvenirs. Discount entry if you show your passport or zairyu card. Great place to start before the park and museum.

Lovely view of Hiroshima
Jan 2020 • Solo
Great experience! The rooftop/observation deck (13th floor) is gorgeous and the views of Hiroshima is stunning. You can see Miyajima Island in the distance! On the 12th floor you can make a paper crane and add it to their glass wall of origami cranes. There’s even a slide that takes you from the 9th floor to the ground floor!

Great View and atmoshere
Dec 2019
We found this a great place to sit and relax and look at the view of Hiroshima Peace Park area. Fee to get to the top. But you get to make a Paper Crane and place it in the glass wall for peace. Cafe at the top to buy coffee or drinks. Just sit and enjoy. We went late evening.
