Owner description: This skeleton of a building is all that remains in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on August 6, 1945, and serves as a symbol of both the horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.

This was quite the sight. Amongst the cherry blossoms and the beautiful park around it stood this historic building devastated but amazing no the less.

This is a must see if visiting Hiroshima. Close to the museum, it is a lasting reminder of the horrors of the bombing. It’s free to go and see.

An incredible memorial to a world-changing event. Don’t visit Hiroshima and miss it. Very sobering and relates well to the museum.

ここに来るたびに、原爆投下という凄惨な出来事が人類に突きつけたものをまざまざと思い出させる。物言わぬその遺構は、無機質だが残酷だ。はっきりと「大量破壊兵器を投下すれば、全てを無残にさせる」と物語っているからだ。訪れる全ての人に知ってもらいたいために、案内は日本語の他、英語・中国語・韓国語で書かれている。ここを通る人のほとんどは笑顔はない。ただ、じっと人類が過去に仕出かした過ちの結果を見つめている。
いつもではないが、往時を生きた人が、この近辺で語り部として活動している。日本語は勿論、英語等の他言語でも語り部をしている。是非、彼らの話を聞いてもらいたい。
ただの遺構、ただの世界遺産ではない。「私達の未来は、私達の選択次第で、良くも悪くもなる。私達は何を選ぶべきか」、そう考えずにはいられないところの一つだ。

Everytime I come to this spot, I remind of many issues that the horrible incident of dropping the atomic bomb made mankind confronted. It does not tell us anything, and it is very inorganic and cruel.
All people can not turn away their eyes in "the reward with weapons of mass destruction".
Information on the Atomic Bomb Dome is described not only in Japanese but also in English, Chinese and Korean, in order to make as many people as possible to understand. Most people kept staring at it without smile.
Often the storytellers of the incident are active around this spot. They'll tell you the frightfulness of those days, not only in Japanese but also in other languages. You should always listen to their stories. They'll answer your question as much as possible.
It is not mere a remains or heritage. "Our future will be better or worse depending on our choice. What should we choose?", I can not stay without thinking it so many times.
