Of all the memorial sites, this is the most touching.

In the basement you see a wall mosaique consisting of 140'000 elements (the number of people that died due to the A-bomb).

On the way out you can read and hear the very emotional stories of people that experienced the drop of the bomb and the suffering and despair of the survivors. - Very touching!

Very elegantly, as well as very crisply modern designed memorial dedicated to the people killed in the Hiroshima A bomb attack. I went in the evening, and there was hardly anyone there, which added to the experience of it all. Haunting and beautiful architecture.

Of all the A-Bomb sites I liked this memorial the best. It is a very simple hall focussing on the people impacted by the blast. It contains some basic facts on the event, but all political opinions, rights or wrongs are left to the likes of the Peace Memorial Museum. I found it very moving.

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.
