Surrounded by trees you can easily walk past but the story behind brings many people to the area so that some closure for families occurs . Due to the need for immediate burial after the bomb this area is peaceful and respectful of the people who died that day .

Even thought I have been to Hiroshima Peace Park before, I couldn't remember for the life of me what this was for. After reading the sign again, and finding out there are many people buried here I thought that this was a nice memorial to those who were lost. It is sad and a bit overwhelming to take all of...

Totally hidden, I had to google map it in the memorial area to find it, but utterly eerily and brings together the magnitude and heritage of hiroshima. Close by is the Korean Memorial

One of the less obvious memorials at the Peace Park, used to entomb the ashes of some of the thousands who did.

Containing the ashes of unidentified victims, it's unfortunate that it now sits next to the smoky parked tour buses.

Another sad but significant memorial in this very emotional Peace Park.it is hard to fathom that this is the sombre resting place for about 70,000 poor souls lost on the day of the bombing or soon after . Let us all hope that the park helps in the long term to world wide peace. On your visit make sure you... More

If you have only a few hours as we did in Hirshima, spend it wondering through this park. I was not sure the significance of the mound when we first saw it but the plague explained everything. Such a beautiful resting site for so many lost that day; a fitting memorial in the rememberance of the dead.

It contains the ashes of tens of thousand of people who died here. It is simple, humble, and a very important site to remember what happened there.
