This is a stark reminder of the devastation of war. One can walk around the building. There is a new coffee shop nearby that provides a welcome relief.

This is one of the few buildings that survived the atomic bomb; and is the most iconic building of the Hiroshima Peace Park

One of the wonderful sites we were able to visit during a business trip to Hiroshima. This is an amazing structure still standing so many years after the bombing and able to have survived the blast.

At the park, you cannot go into the building but adjacent to it and the destruction of the atomic bomb can be felt through the remnants of the brick walls and copper dome.

It's a quiet and thoughtful area. Makes you think if it was all worth it to see the pictures and read the history about what happened here.

Seeing how this structure withstood the effects of the atomic bomb is beyond me. The surroundings really beautiful. However, the sufferings of those affected by the bomb will forever be etched in everyone's memory.

It is in an open park so it is always open. The whole park has various places within it, one site being the Atomic Bomb some. the museums keep open and closing hours. Hope this helps.
