  • In this museum, which is being renovated at the moment and until next year and therefore is a bit provisional, see pictures and stuff from the a-bomb (which the Japanese call it) and its consequences. An absolute must if you are in Hiroshima!

  • Sakura, roses, tulips, etc. are gorgeous here in April! A stunning contrast to the remains of the atomic bombed memorial. A free sightseeing bus (with 2 different routes) from the JR station takes you directly in front of the memorial.
  • This place is very quiet not many people were visiting maybe they didnt realise but thats what made it so great as the peacefullness added to the emotion that was being portrayed. it was free and the set uo was simple and beautiful and very emotional was well worth the visit. is located in the peace park check the guide map
  • Deeply moving place - found it particularly interesting to do some (random) research via the names data base.
  • Everybody should visit at least one time on his life.
  • Very informative
