This is so thought provoking! From the horrors of war, and the enduring hardship after the event. Through to the endurance of the human spirit and the tenaciousness of people. draw your own conclusions when you visit. Beautiful parks and gardens

There is really not much to state here. This is not a museum but a building that shows the destruction of the dropping of the atomic bomb and how it survived.

Without a doubt, Hiroshima and A-Bomb ground-zero area should be visited as part of any trip to Japan. We started the day as a tourist.. we ended the day having a real perspective on Japan, the world we live in and how humanity can recover...More

Hiroshima has plenty of places for sight seeing. Other than the Atomic Dome and Park, there are other places you can go. Their shopping district is good. I personally like it as it it's sheltered and you can walk and window... More
