The people of Hiroshima have preserved this destroyed part of their city for the purpose of education and to promote world peace for all people. This is one of the most important places in the world to visit for the purpose of self-education about the use of nuclear weapons and their effect on people. The Peace Memorial Park makes for...

Beautiful open space with thought provoking and reflective monuments and memorials, the most powerful for me being the Atomic Dome Building and the Peace Bell which you could hear throughout the park.

We visited this area on a tour to Japan and found the experience very moving. The individual parts of the Park are all very interesting and they take the best part of an afternoon to do them all justice as each has its own specific meaning. The full horrors of atomic weapons became distinctly clear and we visited the epicentre... More

Start at the Dome and work you way to the museum. A bus free to JR rail pass holders drops you off here and another leaves from the museum. There's a children's memorial, eternal flame, giant mound with ashes of victims ... All set in a beautiful park with shady avenues. Many office workers sit in benches at lunch time... More

A Must See in Hiroshima. The Peace Memorial Park, Museum and Atomic Dome Building are all worth seeing. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Dome are free to visit. It is very much worth a stroll around. Bring your camera and umbrella if it is raining or sunny.

The park is a quiet open space with beautiful trees, may pathways and several memorials. It was good to be able to walk around and reflect on the atrocity that had once afflicted this city and the beauty they have been able to create in the years that have followed. There are shaded areas where you can sit.

An absolute must see. We were only in Hiroshima for 24 hours and I'm so glad we chose to visit this park. It is very moving when you get to fully appreciate what actually occurred here. Seeing small children pay their respects at the shrine was touching. The a bomb dome is visible from the shrine and well worth the... More

The whole area is full of various memorials, but this one is a large, modern building suitable for quiet reflection.

Popped down for the day on the train. Bus stop just outside the train station to take you to the memorial park. I suggest you try and get there early-mid morning if possible, if not no biggy, go anyway it's 100% worth it. I found the memorial park to be the best laid out memorial area I have ever visited....
