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.

For a peaceful place with history, nice views and a pretty river to sit by and reflect, the space surrounding the A-Bomb Dome is really nice. Of course, day to day life has an abundance of tourist visiting the area, however, it doesn't stop you from relaxing and taking in this historical remains. Nearby, there is a tower where you can view the whole park and get a bigger view of the A-BOMB Dome, but I think from across the river has a better view. Stay respectful and keep voices down though so you don't disturb the people who live there and visit the park.

I have been here a thousand times, and it always makes you think and remember all that people who lost their lives. The museum is very well done. The park is beautiful and peaceful. Always makes me think. I am glad that my children have been here and will never forget. We should never forget.
At my older son's elementary school graduation, the principal told the children that no matter where they go in their lives, as children of Hiroshima, they will always have the responsibility to tell the story of Hiroshima and never let people forgot. I thought that was the most impressive speech they could have heard.

One would get lost by visiting the Dome and museum. Must visit place. The dome will be lit in the night and gives a different perspective. You will get better look if it from the opposite bank of the river. Plenty sparrows are very bold and sits on the hand if one is feeding the grains. There is no entry fee. Place is very much accessible by train, bus or bicycle. It's better to go by bicycle as one can explore around easily.

What an eye opener to what happened. It was interesting seeing and reading what happened. Surreal experience. If you get a chance you have to visit. I got goosebumps from ringing the world peace bell.

The atmosphere set in the whole area fits its desired mood and the informstion provided is sufficient to even those who may not be fully familiar of the events leading to the scenario. The area is serene and quiet. Enough seating space and a lot of area to walk along
