    There is not so spacious aisles are exhibited various exhibits. Crowded on weekends and weekday afternoon think deeply will be able the preciousness of the devastation of the peace with free guide phone and enter open time slot every weekday morning to stop each other, a close look at the cramped, but feasible, and to visit. I visited 2 times in this way. Entrance fee is 200 yen and to realize a closer look at as time permits, so minor we recommend that you want.

    It was a really strong place. You can feel the solemnity atmosphere in this architecture. Also you can hear the story of some people who were affected by the bomb. Really emotional place.

    Peace Memorial Hall was one of my impactful places that I visited in Hiroshima. Its a very simple memorial, but it is gorgeous and a very emotional experience.

    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.
