This Peace Park together with the museum and bomb site make for total insight to the devastation caused. Very well done and a great tribute to all who lost their lives or whose lives were changed forever.

it is a peaceful park to just sit and enjoy the huge monument. the park is close to the hypo center and memorial museum so you can visit all. i prefer the peace park in Hiroshima though - just personal view.
