Sad to read the stories and see the impact of the bomb. It's best to hire a guide to understand the sequence of events.

Visited Hiroshima unfortunately during one of the coldest winter there. First walk into the surrounding, give you chills. Reminds you to one of the biggest tragedy happened to human being. There were volunteer to explain to us about the history, met with one of the survivor. The dome has a beautiful surroundings, river, museum etc. We just visited the dome.

The last remaining ruins of what was old Hiroshima turned into a symbol and a reminder for future generations. Intresting to check out and see, better to go to the museum first to read up on the history of the site. Kinda odd seeing this symbol of distruction on t shirts and mugs in order to sell souvenirs though.

The history and story behind the entire event is very moving. To see this monument and what it represents is very surreal. Combined with the entire peace park, this delivers (or at let should) a stark reminder of what could happen if we don't learn from history. It is a moving scene.

Living here in town, seeing the dome is unavoidable. Most people can't enter it (I've been in it though), so look and reflect from a little difference. Interesting fact, the darker colored metal supports have been added to help reinforce the structure, the lighter pinkish colored metal is original. Also, contrary to popular myth, there are several other buildings (including... More

Surprisingly this is one of the very few remnants of the Hiroshima bomb destruction. Legendary from the Hiroshima catastrophe site photos it's hard and disturbing to see it.

Walking around Hiroshima you easily spot the Bom Dome which was the only building to sustain the blast because it was located just below the explosion area. The building is not accessible and there's fences all around it.

The tragedy of that day in August 1945 should not be forgotten, and the A Bomb done is a fitting reminder. The building is as it was on that day with the exception of the steel structure internally to keep the building upright. A must see along with the memorial park and the museum to begin to grasp that awful... More

An interesting urban relic from the world's first deployment of a nuclear weapon. The building is worth a visit because of what it stands for and where it stands but I will always be lost for words when it comes to reviewing the wastes produced by the atomic bomb and to be quite frank, I'd rather it still be a...
