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.

A visit to the dome is a moving experience and a reminder of why international peace is so important. To actually visit is a humbling experience

I was unsure about this one but I am glad I went. Very sobering to read some of the stories scattered around the area about how destructive it was and to see how much they have re-built. Try going at night for a full effect.

Another relic showing the effect of the bomb. Personally not as impressionable as the museum. You can’t get near the building.

This is a fantastic piece of history. Reading the plaques around the area make a pretty straightforward message. Keep peace and prevent war which I think the Japanese people really believe in. The structure had a board there which showed the building before the bombing and what it was used for. This is a nice little stop off that won’t cost you anything.

It is an amazing memorial to those that perished in 1945. Beautifully maintained. Along the river near the T-shaped bridge that was the intended target. Go. Read. Learn and respect.
