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.

Some places transcend the very idea of a star review. How can I give a meaningful rating to a memorial site that reminds us of the tragedy and folly and cruelty of war ... and the resilience of a people that rebuilt such a vibrant and wonderful city from the ashes?
It seems shallow to assign any sort of "rating" to that sort of experience, and though I've been here a dozen times or more, the feelings remain as fresh as the day I first saw this place in person.

Absolutely breathtaking, it's really a true sight to see. I can't explain all the emotions it gave me as it was quite horrific yet beautiful that they use this as a symbol for why peace must be insured. It was pretty quiet when I went at 6pm and managed to get some great photos, it's really beautiful in peace park nearby too where you can see the crane origami peace memorial. It's an incredible place to see and visit and you must do this when you visitm

Very easy to get to, we dropped by after visiting Miyajima. There are lots of people but still an nice walk along the river. Lots of food close by. The dome is there and powerful reminder of war. Must visit in Hiroshima.

It is a reverend place. It is amazing how the Japanese exerted all this effort to maintain the dome. It is touching as well as heartbreaking to be in such close distance to a building that witnessed the first atomic bomb in the history of man kind. What is wrecking is the thought of how much the people inside this building suffered if a building made of concrete and steal ended up like that even after the restorative efforts.

Incredible place to visit- it is truly moving to see in person. This is must see in Hiroshima. I'd suggest grabbing some snacks for a little picnic on a nearby park bench to contemplate the events that occurred at that very location.
