Very very historic and important site. A must if you are able to visit Hiroshima. So touching and emotional. Horror but definitely worth seeing. Well restored so it remain for the future. Nice surroundings. Restaurants nearby. And obviously also visit the peace museum nearby.

History. The first Atomic bomb was dropped above Hiroshima. Killing 70000 people on that day. Many more over time. This is a reminder and monument. Must visit

This along with the museum which is located next door to each other are absolute musts for Hiroshima. A very symbolic structure that needs to be there and they have respected it very well

We stepped off our coach in front of this monument and were frozen in time, for many years the Japanese were divided as to whether they should destroy the remains, the world is so grateful that they chose to keep it

Of course this is a must see when you visit Hiroshima. It has been preserved to look exactly as it did on that terrible day in 1945. Incredibly moving to see in the middle of the newly built city.

Well worth a visit. It evokes a real sense of awe. Just stand there and imagine what it would have been like.

Visited the peace park where this ruin has been left after the Atomic Bomb. Very moving when you think that ordinary people died for the glory of the Emperor.

Don't bother with a tour. It's simple to get around on foot and you can get headphones with English translation. Inexpensive and intensely moving experience. The City of Hiroshima is beautiful and very peaceful with wide... 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
