  • The memorial is located near to the museum and while you might be tempted to head straight there, you should pay a visit to this place. Entry is free. I won't say too much as you need to experience it...  more »
  • This, again is a must see... I was extremely impressed that the plaques showed the remorse for their part in WW2 and acknowledge the devastating impact impact it had on Hiroshima and the world... 
  • Admission is free to the Museum, ever, because its not big place but can feel the tragedy of indirect or won.

  • 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
