There is a strange, solemn beauty here. Sometimes there are guides around talking more about the bomb, but it is also all right to go without a guide. Everything is so peaceful but it is also a little silent around here, because it was ground zero.

Nice quick stop to see a monument that symbolizes peace and the need for disarmament of nuclear arms.

As part of the beautifully designed memorial park, the Atomic Bomb Dome is a stark reminder of the impact of the bomb. We visited on a winter day when it was snowing lightly, and it was a somewhat surreal and very moving experience. Highly recommended to see this and the other features of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.

We got off the at the Hiroshima Train station and found a bus to drop us directly in front of the A-Bomb Dome. It's pretty cool to walk around, not much to see. But it is right across from the Peace Park, which you want to go to, so you might as well stop by the Atomic Bomb Dome.

It's an amazing experience to see this remnant in the midst of of a rebuilt city. There are some very informative plaques around and it's a lovely short walk from the museum. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to see this solemn relic. You can get there easily from Hiroshima station using the red tour bus. There's a day... More

The sight of this structure was quite sobering and it felt like a shrine/memorial. surrounded by manicured garden and fence. Local volunteer guides with excellent English were keen to talk about the event and its immediate and long term social impact.

I have a tour here last December. I've visit japan couple times before, and actually Hiroshima was the place make me to know about Japan when I was young. Here, a very serene and peaceful place.

It is quite nice area. It is a must to visit if you are in Hiroshima. Japan did a good job to maintain this area for their kids to learn their history.

An easy to get to site which gives you a good sence of what it looked like after the bomb. They have gone into LOTS and LOTS of trouble to keep it looking original.
