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.

Impressive, emotional, meaningful. It's pretty daunting and hypnotizing. Try to find the old man who sits around there who is a survivor of the bomb. He had lots of stories to tell which won't appear anywhere in the museum...
This should be the first stop on your tour of Hiroshima, followed by a visit to the museum.

This location is on the park, very nice area and river can calm down your mind. Meet a guy when atomic bomb hit his mom was 4 months pregnant for him. His mom still alive and healthy. Around this area do have lot of good restaurants.

A sombre mood for me as I visited this reminder of how destructive the atomic bomb was then. N how nuclear weapons of modern days must NEVER be deployed as their destructive power would be many times over!
I deliberately went back at night to look at it again n it does not give me an eerie feeling but just a sense of loss.
Blessed those who died instantly n those who suffered great unimaginable (as no one had ever been harmed by an atomic bomb before this) pains before dying by end of December (4 months after)!!
A place to contemplate peace!

This place really shined some light on the destructive power of a nuclear blast and how devastating war can be. For all of my fellow military sisters and brothers who are stationed in Japan or any others who have the opportunity to take a trip to Atomic Bome Dome please do so because seeing this place has a way of putting what we have sworn to do in order to protect our country in a much clearer prospective. War is not pretty so let's look at this and do what we can to prevent it. Study and learn from your history or be set on a path to relive it. Let's all be better for our future🙏🏽✌🏽

I’ve been here twice now, second occasion in the late evening and was very nice. A river is next to it which adds to the beauty of the area and is nice to see the building is well maintained. Toilets are very close by too and the dome is easy to access via tram. If you are within the Hiroshima area I recommend coming along to see and experience some great history.
