We visited this monument which forms part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The ruins are a memorial and a place to reflect on the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 where over...More

Being 200 meters away from the hypocenter, this building is the last remaining from the bomb. It's amazing that it's still standing there, reminding the world of what happened in Hiroshima. If you're into history and you already have an idea about what happened there...More

It is pretty amazing that this relic, with some extra supports, still stands 70 years after the USA was forced to drop an atomic bomb here. It was a sobering reminder of of the consequences of unabated world domination by blood thirsty tyrants. Everything around...More

Easy to get to and it’s such a real and stark reminder of the atrocities of nuclear warfare. Walk around that area to see other attractions.

No cost to walk around the Bomb Dome. Memorials and description placards to read. Easy strolling and the park is just across the river. Worth including this free sight.

When visiting the dome and memorials you realize how fragile life is. This is a must visit on anyone’s trip to Japan. Very easy access to get to the dome.
