A somber and heart-wrenching experience of the tragedies for war. The atmosphere throughout the museum is one of shock, awe and sadness. Many people are emotionally moved by the photos, movies and displays. All of which are engaging and very interesting. I'm not sure I...More

It is powerful, a must see! Entrance is only ¥200, totally worth it. The whole story kills you inside but it’s part of history.

Visit this place to know the atrocity committed on August 6, 1945. It is a tasteful museum where respect is given to the victims. I would highly recommend anyone in the area to walk the museum and the grounds. One survivor in a video biography...More

A fitting and appropriately respectful reminder of the horror of nuclear weapons and their effect. The video is a must.

This museum is a must. It explains so well the cruelty and the ravages of the bomb. It is so sad, I believe everyone cries, including myself.

Absolutely worth visiting and reading every story and every detail. Kept me interested for the whole time. You learn from real stories the brutal impact a nuclear bomb has on a city/region and its people.

It is a moving display of the horrific devastation caused by the dropping of the atomic bomb. However, in the historical perspective laid out in the displays, the major reason for dropping the bomb given was to minimize the Soviet Union’s influence at the end...More

It says Spring 2019. The exhibition is now installed in the east building. Would be nice to know how the difference is, once it is open. I already found the temporary version quite well-made.

I think you refer Kaichu Road in Uruma on Day 9. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie… We did driving there last year far to Ikeijima Island. There's Umi-no Eki (Sea Station) building on the bridge, which has gift shop and a restaurant. When you pass Umi-no Eki, dining place is not many. The beach in Ikijima Island was beautiful.

Arrived in Hiroshima...some questions? (10 Replies)
Hey guys, Arrived in Hiroshima just now. It was a long trek from Mount Koya, though well worth it.

Tomorrow I have a full slate ahead of me, and just wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

Okonomikura - you've got to have Hiroshima-yaki... Hiroshima - style okonomiyaki. How much luggage are you carrying? Really, due to international flights, you should only have one large piece of luggage about 20kgs, and some hand luggage. - Most suitcases have wheels - so it shouldn't be difficult transporting your bags with you - you've been on the shinkansen already - so you should have noticed that there is space behind the last seat of each carriage where you can leave your large...More

Hello all I read that the Main building will be closed from February 2017 until July 2018. it's still worth to visit the museum/park during this time? It is so significant ? Thanks in advance!

I think the entrance fee is only 50yen? Even if you see nothing there and just go to the bathroom, it's worth to visit
