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.

A heart dreading place where one can see what nuclear weapons do to a person both physically and mentally. The atmosphere was full with visitors holding a handkerchief in their hands to wipe off the tears while reading the heart wrecking stories of Japanese people after the bomb hit the city.

Great amenities and good staff response.

There were so many cats at the site! Maybe local cats having a wonder? We saw different breeds on both days we visited it was very nice. The site was very clean and quiet. Respectful and able to sit and reflect on what happened here. So very important for the community.
