A fascinating place to visit, especially for the close and distant relatives of those that lost their life from the bomb. I think it’s amazing that you can search the names of those lost, along with their photos which really brings it home.

A beautifully done structure that tells the story of the victims of the bombing of Hiroshima. There are images, text, and there is a video of short stories told by children of the bombing. Very heavy but a must when visiting. And it's free.

This has a quiet, contemplative atmosphere focusing on the victims of the bomb. Free entry and only took us 15 minutes (although you could spend a awful lot longer there). Worth a visit.
