It is good to walk through this park on the way to the museum. Take time to read the memorial writings. Easy to get to - if arriving at the hiroshima train station, take the meipuru-puru bus which stops at the major sites in hiroshima including this one.

Here was a serene park. No one will make noise here. The park was peace, quiet and actually, it'll make people with heavy heart. Walk slowly here and relax in the park. Regret about why a war should be carried out. Human shouldn't fight with each other.

This is a beautifully designed memorial park. Even on a cold winter's day it is lovely to stroll through. While it is a sombre reminder of the events of 6 August 1945, the spirit of the people of Hiroshima and the dedication to peace are inspiring. We walked though the park, starting at the Atomic Bomb Dome (catch the streetcar... More

This is a great place for a stroll and there is a beautiful stone arch that lines up with the flaming fountain and the dome. I recommend starting at the dome and walking through the park to the museum.

It locate near the Atomic Bomb Dome. It is very nice to walk around. It was very cold when we visited during the end of December. But it's worthwhile.

We rang the bell of peace. This park has been so beautifuly done - all exhibitions nicely flow together and very visually pleasing. Give yourself lots of time to fully see the park.

We walked twice through this park. Well designed and maintained. Easy to stop and imagine what was once here before it was reduced to ashes in 1945. Good place to stand at 8:15 in the morning and think about August 6, 1945.

Walk beyond the A-bomb dome when you get off the tram and continue down towards the museum. Pop in to visit the paper cranes display, they are gorgeous (read the stories about them first though!). On your way back up walk up on the opposite side of the river to the A-bomb dome. This is for 2 reasons, 1 it... More

The Peace Park is serene, with many monuments to world peace. It is easily accessible by the hop-on, hop-off tourist bus.

If you visit Japan, you must travel to Hiroshima and this Memorial Park. To walk there on this little island, the museums and statues is moving.
