We suggest you take a visit to South Korea's war memorial and national museums in Seoul or talk with anyone who had to experience fighting in WW2 to gain their perspective.

So, the two museums pair up quite well.
Right across the street from the Yamato Museum, this amazingly positioned submarine is just part of the museum for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (it's currently the world's 5th largest naval force).

Small museum, but amazing art
This is a fabulous museum that we got to enjoy on our last day in Hiroshima.
Small museum but attractive, located beside beautiful Shukkeien Garden.
My wife and I visited this school during a rainy day, and the stories that are in this small museum make the experience of Hiroshima a lasting one.
Throughout the museum, you will see many orizuru (折鶴) or origami folded cranes that signify the praying for world peace.
Inside were the usual physic investigation games found in most science exploration museums.
This is a fabulous free museum--in America you would be charged at least $15 per kid to climb, explore, do science projects and all sorts of hands on activities.
One of the best museums in Japan I have been to
This is one of the most accessible and enjoyable modern art museums I have visited.
We went to the hill where the museum is situated on the tour bus that you can hop on and off, it is part of the privileges you have with your JR pass.
Secondly, you can visit the Museum where there is a faithful reproduction of a Okonomiyaki shop, and street vendor wagons and "lolly" shops.
First we did a quick museum tour which talks about the history of the dish and then talks about the company that makes the Okonomiyaki sauce.
Oddly this is a hands on climb on museum so for this reason a bit sad to see kids sitting and abusing some of the collection but still well worth seeing.
The proof: this museum is criminally neglected by tourists when in fact offers a great perspective of the history of the Hiroshima prefecture.
Great museum and close to castle
The museum director also gave us a tour and speaks great English so we leaned a lot about Hiroshima and got some great recommendations about places to go.
When we arrived there we received a very pleasant welcome and we were also guided through the museum by an English speaking guide, who was ready and available to answer our questions.
