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.

As a German I visited many WWII memorial sites. This one is certainly one of the best! I really recommend visiting this place, it's a very unique and IMHO important experience that nobody should miss when he's or she's in the area.

The Park was massive yet it was clean and not overcrowded. Tourist feel safe and it was well maintained. The atmosphere was relaxing and people around are friendly and nice. There was a city wifi available so it was more better. You can capture every moment and upload it right away. Though i miss the chance to see the museum in the park, it was all worthwhile. #LetsGuide

Being present at the foot of the Atomic Bomb Dome in a way brings a lot of sentiment to your heart, that sometimes you might have tears somewhat well-up for no particular reason. How the Japanese culture have risen up and retained this landmark consciously is noble and is definitely a must-see place to visit. The atmosphere surrounding the Bomb Dome is so serene, it's as if time stops and you become lost in the moment, beautiful in so many different ways.

One of the two World Heritage sites in Hiroshima. Well maintained periodically. The museum in the Peace Memorial Park exhibits documentary of this building.

A speedboat port locates slightly south from here offering water taxi to the other World Heritage site Miyajima.
