This skeleton of a building is all that remains in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on August 6, 1945, and serves as a symbol of both the horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.

If the idea of a nuclear war seems remote and abstract, a visit to Hiroshima will cure anyone of that. The stark image of this bombed building with the memorial grave to the people who died instantly inside it can't help but fill the viewer...More

Entering the city of Hiroshima, you are met with life and vitality. People are bustling about through large buildings and malls. We walked to the Atomic Bomb Dome and met with solemn tranquility and respect. This structure serves to remind visitors and locals the terrifying...More

In my opinion, this is a must see. This is a reminder of what mankind can do to itself. It's a good opportunity to reflect and just think of the devastation this region endured.

An absolutely must visit, very emotional to see the impact of the bomb, not just in the building but the area around as well. Not to miss if you're in Hiroshima.

Hard to describe a place that has been left untouched after an A bomb blast over 70 years ago. Eerie and Sombre and plenty of time for reflective thought as you view the building. A visit to the A Bomb Museum is a must do...More

The classic tourist attraction of hiroshima and also so sad to see. It was really emotional to see how destructive that bomb was.

We combined viewing the dome with a visit with the nearby Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and park as it is close by. It is photogenic and awesome that it survived total destruction.

I think Shirakawago is too far for a day trip from Kyoto. Personally I'd spend a night or two in Kanazawa and Takayama, stopping for a few hours in Shirakawago en route. Himeji can be visited for a few hours en route between Kyoto/Osaka and Hiroshima.

Hiroshema One day visit from Cruise Ship (7 Replies)
We will in in Hiroshema for one day, July 4th. We are interested in visiting Peace Memorial Park, Atomic Bomb Dome and Hiroshemia Castle. Also want to try Oysters and Okonomiyaki. Is this possible in a one day visit? What is the best way to get to these areas from the cruise ship pier?

Response fromProfandMom|
I would skip the castle because Hiroshima's is nothing special and is just a concrete shell. You can easily do the rest of the items on your list. I would try to add Miyajima if possible. There are lots of oyster places there right by the dock.

Hello My adult daughter and myself will be visiting Hiroshima as part of our Japan vacation. We will arrive from Kyoto at approx 10am and are staying at the Sheriton Grand Hiroshima Hotel right by the station. We leave Hiroshima at midday the following day. We would like to visit Miyajima, see Hiroshima Castle, the Peace Memorial Park (not the museum) and the Atomic Bomb Dome. We are looking for advice on how to plan this visit so we make the most of the short time we have. Thank...More

The castle, peace park and A-bomb dome are all very close to each other so easy to visit. I'd be inclined to check tide times so as to time your visit to Miyajima for when the tide is in to see the torii gate 'floating'
