World Heritage: Atomic Bomb Dome4.8
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.

It was the most profound experiences of my life. It is one thing to read and watch on TV the horrors of Atomic bomb, but to actually see and hear from survivers is surreal. I will never forget, and I truly hope the world doesn't. The people of this city are beyond amazing, they are friendly (I have never seen such hospitality before and I have traveled to many countries and cities), kind and make you appreciate and be happy to visit this wonderful place.

Well kept and cared for area. It is an amazing and must see site for any tourist. It is a truly inspiring and emotion provoking experience. It is a short walk from the Peace Park and there are a number of places to stop for a break, food and drinks. There are also a number of volunteers around to ask questions.

What a unique experience. Really opened my eyes to the extent of what happened in Hiroshima. Around the building is often a guide with free books you can read for more in depth look into the events which took place here before.

Educational, thought provoking, moving, angering, saddening . All things to attribute to the location of the world’s first nuclear/atomic weapon use. A prescient and critical reminder of what horrors the human mind is capable of if given the tools and authority to enact its more primal urges. A monument to just how terrible people can be to each other. And more importantly, how too much nationalism can invoke the worst in humanity. Even more important given today’s global political climate.

A landmark and nice sightseeing spot, especially with the peace park, the museum and the memorial near by.
Go there to learn more about history and / or just a stroll in a lovely and relaxant park.
It’s also worth a visit at night since the dome and the park have nice lightings.
