One of the highlights of my stay in Japan. I stayed for 2 nights, keeping things relaxed. Seemed like others rushed in and out with 1 nighters. The place is spotless, the directors of the WFC were very friendly and super helpful.
Spending a morning chatting to a survivor who shared his story and some photos was arranged by the WFC and an amazing experience worth a 100 museums and parks. They did also arrange a tour of the park which was nice to have someone show us around as there are many memorials.
I liked that the place is linked in with the community via helping with English and that the founder has a memorial in the peace park - so WFC comes with some proper Hiroshima credentials!
