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.

I enjoyed the traditional Japanese sit down shower! The style of the room was modern but with traditional flare. The little corner sofa with a table was a perfect touch. A very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The view is nice. I love this hotel!

Very well preserved remains from the A bomb. You cannot right up to it, however you can see close enough. the area itself is very well kept and very beautiful. from here its a short walk to the museum. A must visit if in Hiroshima

The actual shell of the building that survived the blast is well maintained, easily accessible, and as a tourist destination, far less congested than other popular places. Whilst it is moving to be in the city where such an event took place, and to read the various memorials in the area, it didn't have the impact I was expecting as a result of how everything has been rebuilt, and somewhat sanitised. This is a good reflection of how people, and the country in my opinion, have reacted though - never forget, learn, but move on!

I've always wanted to visit this location ever since I was young. It marks both a low-point in human history but also as a beacon for peace.
It's in part of what is now a larger complex within the Peace Memorial park, which has an interesting museum, however for me it was most meaningful to view at night as the rest of the city around it just fades away a little bit.
Very interesting site and a must visit for anyone in the area.

The now preserved building probably synonymous with the atomic bomb dropping. I was surprised that debris had been preserved right around the base of the building as was on the day. The pictures are as close as you can get, there is a fence around to protect it but there are some good spaces to be able to take a picture or just to look and think.
