This was my second time to the Atomic Bomb Dome and this time it was actually more moving for me. Maybe because I took my time reading all the information that's posted near the Dome. Plus, I suggest viewing the Dome from different angles. In...More

You see it and a feeling overcomes you of the destructive power of an atomic bomb. The twisted metal and the partially destroyed building tells a story without comment of the destructivebess of the bomb.

This site really brings home the destruction and devastation that occurred here when the city was hit by an atomic bomb.

It was interesting to see the Atomic bomb dome in person as it shows the destructiveness of the 1st atomic bomb dropped in Japan. Recommended for anyone interested in WW2 history.

This iconic, living memory of the 1st A-bomb is an important message to the world. I am glad that the building is to be preserved forever. Hopefully, its message will never be forgotten.

A sad remembrance of what happened on 6 Aug 1945 that killed 140,000 people. The view of the Atomic Bomb dome is best photographed from the opposite side of the river.

It was great to see this monument. It was a reminder what war and hatred can do to us. It is worthwhile doing this and showing to kids for what it stands for.

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

Hiroshima has plenty of places for sight seeing. Other than the Atomic Dome and Park, there are other places you can go. Their shopping district is good. I personally like it as it it's sheltered and you can walk and window... More
