Sit a wonder how this survived when everything else got destroyed in the blast. Something to reflect on.

The A Bomb Dome is a place where you can feel a shiver down the spine as you read the description and see the images of what happened here in that morning of august 6, 1945. They keep the place as a reminder for future generations of the horrors of the war.

I can't even begin to imagine what it would have been like...absolutely horrifying. The sadness is overwhelming....the story is told in great detail so future generations never forget and hopefully never repeat.

The only building that is preserved in Hiroshima after WWII. Spectacular and beautiful at night. Took numerous photo, different angle of the same building. Beside the doom, stands the peace museum. I am glad i took the effort to peace museum

This is the only structure that survived the bombing. It is a sad reminder of that horrible day in the history of mankind. You feel overwhelmed standing by it. It makes you feel very sad and peaceful at the same time. Lot of people are around having brochures and files giving actual accounts of survivors. Overall it stresses on message... More

We just walked around the dome for an hour. Nothing much to say as it a rather emotionally charged experience.

This part destroyed building was the only building left after the A Bomb exploded. It's miraculous to think it survived even in part. It's located right by the river, the peace park and the museum. When you read about this, and see it, you can sense the horror of the time. But yet it's strangely peaceful. The story is sensitively... More

It's hard to stand next to the dome and see what was caused by the atomic bomb. The difference between the dome's remains and the beautiful park around is so huge that it is hard to see. I am happy it was preserved and we can still see what can be caused by an atomic bomb and not just hearing... More

You will not miss the structure, which is the sole surviving from that day when the bomb dropped. It has information around it for those interested to read the history. You have to be here and see it to experience the feeling and understands the true horrors of the atomic bomb.
