My husband and I specifically went to Hiroshima to see this solemn historical piece of history. Being from the U.S. but of Japanese descent,my feelings were mixed with sadness and wonder.. I'm not much of a history buff so my husband had to fill me in on the history of the place. It was quite amazing to see what survived... More

As you approach you start to feel the wight of this place, which is so important for the whole humanity. You can find yourself to stand, silent, thinking about what happened here. It's very well kept. At night is even more dramatic.

You can't miss this dome, you will see it as soon as you get to Gentaku Dome Mae station by streetcar. You can really see the destruction first hand here and it will only be the beginning as your walk through the rest of the park, memorial hall and museum.

Easy to see in Peace park. Not crowded because of the location. The dome is huge and significant and very impressive.

It was an eerie feeling to stand outside this structure after seeing photos of it many, many times. It is instantly recognisable as a symbol of Hiroshima. It has been discretely reinforced and is fenced off for obvious reasons. However you can walk all the way around it and will find that you pause on many occasions to reflect on... More

What is just a tourist place for us is the shaping event to the locals and actually the whole world was influenced by it. Standing there helps to perceive even if just a little the magnitude of this event. Mostly recommended!

Looking at this building, now the symbol of the devastating results of nuclear war, is a somber experience, causing reflection, profound sadness, and hope that humanity will learn and never repeat the horrors of that day.

It's hard not to stand in front of this structure and not to vision what happened that day. You can walk around the dome to get a 360 degree view as well as a view across the river at the park.

It was eerie to see the remains of a building after a nuclear blast. People can walk around the outside of the building but there is a fence surrounding it to prevent access to the interior. It was free to walk around it. We took the hop-on-hop-off bus straight from the Shinkansen Train Station to get here. The bus ride... More

Great memorial that five a good impression of the dezastre following the atomic bombing. However certain research is needed before the visit in order to put the image in perspective. Can be visited also at night
