On that fateful day- August 6, 1945 at 8.15am, a U.S. Army B-29 bomber dropped the first atomic bomb in this area, destroying most of the city. Innocent people lost their lives instantly. I felt really sad while exploring the remains of the Dome. This...More

Everyone has to experience this, it will be different for each individual. Sobering. Not much about how they Japan started the war and inflicted terrible suffering all through Asia.

It’s a nice walk around the Dome, it really does drive home the point of such a terrible weapon that we don’t want to see used again.

It is a must see to feel the start of the atomic age. That it survived is because of its construction and it’s position to the bomb activation. A moving visit and an important point in history.

This is very evocative. Worth walking all the way round as there are information boards showing the original structure, which really brings home the destruction.

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
