“Should be experience by all, very moving and humbling”

Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims
Ranked #4 of 298 things to do in Hiroshima
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We all know what happened in Hiroshima over 60 years ago during WW II, but it's another thing to walk in the area of the atomic blast, see the only remaining building and listen to the story of children who were there. Should be experienced by all.

This place is other stop in your visit to the area most damaged by the atomic bomb in 1945. Other opportunity to meditate, to pray if you believe, to think about violence, about the stupidity of war. To cry, if you want to cry. To take another non-smiling photograph.

Certainly worth visiting - entry was free and the facility and central fountain were very nicely done. There's informational tablets, but I think the purpose of the main underground fountain area is meditative.

An underground hall of remembrance which bears the names of the victims is circular so as you stand in the middle you look out at neighborhoods and see the destruction in all directions. It is certainly worth a few tears and a prayer that this will never happen again.
