    Wonderful for kids!
    This was a great and meaningful activity with kids (probably best for 5 & older to construct the origami crane). The tower is a work of art, and we enjoyed everything from the elevator experience going up to the origami tutorial and construction to standing on the glass floor and floating our cranes down the exterior glass wall. The view from the top is fantastic, but its design with the sloped floor is so unique. On the 12F floor, there are a few interactive, life-sized games for kids to enjoy, but the best part was sliding 12 floors down to the ground floor (walking the ramp or taking the elevator are also options). Truly a unique experience, and I'm so glad we visited!

    Excellent employees, beautiful views
    Beautiful views of the Peace Park. The highlight for me was Yuta, one of the employees. He took the time to talk and to explain about the tower. It was a good experience, made all the better by the personal touch. Thank you.

    Peaceful and powerful
    Simply, in our books, this is a must-see. 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 Hiroshima. It's clear that those who created the observatory deck and tower envisioned a place for people to reflect.

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!

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

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)

I went in in early evening. I was warned the cafe at the top was closed but still went to see. The view is pretty but the safety mesh net makes taking decent photographs impossible. It is a decent place to sit for a bit but the cost of 2200 is too much for that. The room for making paper cranes is nice but again not free to make (I assumed you'd get a free paper given the entry cost). I took the slide down. It stops at every floor and it's design mesbs that you batter your right elbow at every corner no matter how you sit (at least as a solo rider).
Pretty views but not worth the cost.

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!

This was part of my tour of Hiroshima. You go up to the top, Roof level and there is an open air observation deck which overlooks all of Hirsoshima, the A-Bomb dome and Peace Park. It's beautiful. Then when leaving you can easily walk down 12 flights or you can do a spiral slide. A lot of kids did this and were having great fun. At the bottom there is a good tourist shop and restaurant. Don't miss this!

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.
