At the north end of 12-hector Peace Memorial Park, the shell of a domed building has been left standing since August 6th, 1945. This structure was the only surviving building after the atomic bomb exploded 600 meters above, and is the most renowned symbol of Hiroshima and a testament to what happened here. The rubble and debris inside of it still remains there.

The place, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, is beautifully lit up at night near the river. It is recommended to visit the nearby memorial museum for more context and explanation. Take a tram from Hiroshima Station for 15 minutes to get off outside this building.

I’ve been here twice now, second occasion in the late evening and was very nice. A river is next to it which adds to the beauty of the area and is nice to see the building is well maintained. Toilets are very close by too and the dome is easy to access via tram. If you are within the Hiroshima area I recommend coming along to see and experience some great history.

Nice park. World heritage site in Japan. There’s a museum nearby too. Famous place to visit. Ruins worth seeing. Truly a historical site. Can take many pictures and also with varying angles. Many visitors around.

The skeletal remains of a building that withstood the force of an Atomic bomb. Very interesting to view from all side, and sits in a park along a river. Places to sit and some food stands near by. A great place to start before exploring the rest of Peace Park.

Incredible piece of history. If you're in Hiroshima you have to visit this place. A hallowing reminder of what mankind is capable of doing to itself.

So many feelings visiting the A-bomb Dome. Thinking about all the people that were killed here, all the destruction and devastation makes you feel uneasy but also in peace because it's a monument for the Peace. Really touching. Must visit
