Just an amazing site.

Quite unbelievable to think that this was still standing after the bomb exploded a few hundred feet above it. One has to see it to believe it.

One of the most famous images of the Hiroshima aftermath. It's very haunting to see it in real life, and when we went there were lots of survivors (and offspring of survivors) sharing their stories with tourists.

If you are in Hiroshima try to visit the atomic bomb dome, one of the buildings that survived the a bomb blast on 6 August 1945. Situated near a lake(?) it is a scenic reminder of the evils that men do. It is also a symbol of resilience and survival. Check it out if in the area

One of the most iconic places to visit while in Hiroshima is the Atomic Bomb Dome. A solemn place to pause and remember the loss of life for so many people. Such a peaceful place now, worth a visit.

Hiroshima is a town that has a great feeling and vibe about it, having being rebuilt from the ashes of one of the most historical days of mankind. The significance of what happened here may diminish over time to younger generations, but for myself the remains of the Promotional Hall is one of the most iconic buildings you can visit.... More

This is the reason for going to Hiroshima. Make sure you have a look both during daylight and in the evening.

One of a very few buildings to still be standing after the bombing. Will be an eternal reminder of the atrocities of war. RIP all the victims.

A must see and something to remind us of the atrocities of war and the need not to proliferate nuclear weapons. The dome is a great way to end a tour of the Peace Museum and Peace Park, as a haunting reminder of the horrors of nuclear warfare.
