As others note, the fact that whenever you visit, people are laying flowers and saying prayers for those killed by the bomb makes this an ever-evolving memorial site... altered as it is every 6 August when new names are added to the list of those lives taken by the bomb. It's a simple yet impressive structure, too - and the way it frames and works along with other areas in the park is both visually stunning and thought-provoking, too. Not only is the flame for peace visible through it, along with the dome, but of course the children's memorial is nearby, and looking at it from the other side, you see the museum beyond it. It makes a strong central point in a park that is a both beautiful and moving reminder of what happened to Hiroshima and its people.
