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 recommended place to visit. Amazing to see that this structure still remained after the bomb was dropped. Surrounding the dome there are many beautiful parks. I would also recommend renting a bicycle and cycling around the area. Recommended!

This is one of the area to remind us that there should never be wars anymore. There are many memorial statues and buildings here, including the memorial peace museum. Take a walk in the morning, afternoon and evening to enjoy different views. Tram or street train are available within a short 10 minutes ride from Hiroshima station. Must visit area of Hiroshima

A tragic part of history presented in such a beautiful, tranquil way really pushes home the whole pursuit of world peace. As the entire city represents so well. The smell of the ocean while taking in the building and surrounding space is a moment I think most people who visit will treasure and take with them. There are many great places to shop and eat around the park and the atmosphere is considerably less somber than I thought it would be. A must visit for any first timers in Japan!

This place makes you feel the pain of the aftermath of a nuclear explosion created by the most civilized nation of the world. The nation who has dropped little boy should be ashamed of themselves and rather try to make this world free of nuclear warheads, which they can at present if they are truly sorry. I salute Japan for their endless perseverance in rebuilding this city and my heartfelt condolences to all the people who had lost their lives and families.

This area is not about saying “Wowww!! Such a nice place “ rather it is too see and feel the destruction of the nuclear weapon. Pictures shows how was the life before and after. Only one feeling “Peace and No to War”
