Despite an immensely sad history, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is a beautiful reminder of the good that exists in the world. The park itself is beautiful, and it's filled with several great peace monuments: even though the history has such a sad past, they look forward to a better future.

A beautiful park with a lot of monuments and memorials of war and peace to remember us to never make the same mistakes again.

An excellent memorial to those who lost their lives in the bomb. Everyone who visits Japan, should make the trip to Hiroshima to visit this beautiful city and share in the hope of no more nuclear war.

This park also tells the story of what happened in 1954. It's a huge attraction. Need good 1 hour to look around the whole park. Accessible by free shuttle.

A nice and well spaced out park. The cranes act as a brilliant and vibrant reminder of the lives lost.

The entire peace park is worth the visit. Several monuments honoring victims, children and reminders of seeking peace in the future. I visited on a beautiful weather day so I was able to enjoy the park and take my time visiting each monument - would recommend people taking their time and soaking in the area...

Located at the hypocenter of the first a-bomb, this park is somber, but not morose. It is a well done memorial adjacent to a museum. Both are worth a visit, dwelling on an effort to avoid future use of nuclear weapons.
