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 just stood and looked at this building around 20 minutes. It’s really hard to explain my feeling at that time, everything was so quiet with the sunset. Even local people or tourism talked like whispering to each other. I feel like this place has a magic which nobody can explain. If you are in Japan or travel there, I highly recommend Hiroshima.

The remarkable remaining of Hiroshima Prefecture Industrial Promotion Hall, is now called as Atomic Dome, was in the area of the first atomic bomb exploded on 6 August 1945. It is now served as symbol of both horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.

I've been here so many times growing up, and it is always such a somber, yet serene place. Peace Park is a place that if you are in Japan, you should find the time to visit. Here you can sense the indescribable loss of life, yet at the same time, appreciate the rebirth of a peaceful culture.

Truly a powerful place. It's so surreal and eerie to see this building standing here, then the city of Hiroshima in the background. This place is a great precursor to the museum ahead and really sets the tone for the area.

Note: Visited prior to Covid, so things may be different.
