I was surprised to know how many unidentified victims there were, and that there were many Chinese and South Korean victims of the bombing. Seeing the memorials made me more curious about world history and reflective on the perspectives I have been learning it from.

Very convenient to reach the park, take number 2 or 6 tram from hiroshima JR station which cost 160 yen per trip only, get off right next to the dome. Once u got off from the tram, u can hear lots of sound from the crow, seems they are shouting for the soul of the victms. Its a memoriable place... More

The arch, fire and the dome are in a straight line. And it's really good. The place is well maintained.

I think every human should see this. Very humbling. A bit sad, obviously. I found the message here to promote peace and to never use nuclear weapons again. I did not find it insulting to Americans. If you are in Japan, get on a train and go there. Only takes an hour or two to tour it.

Well worth spending the time to wander around these lovely grounds and reflect after visiting the Hiroshima Peace Museum.

When you come out rattled from the museum, before you see the Dome, you go through this park. It's a good chance to clear your head. You will see strings of thousands of origami cranes, often in artwork, all made by local schoolchildren and guests. This has been a symbol of Japan's postwar commitment to peace, and most Japanese hope... More

when I visited to this park, I didn't think about my life carefully. I knew the girl whose age was around 10 years old was dead until she will be 20 years old because of a disease from atomic bomb. I imagined to die until 20 years old. I felt very sad and hoped to survive long. After then, paper... More
