  • Hiroshima atomic bomb memorial service to the victims due to a Memorial. Scale is not big, but it is free and also won wide starting center how you can view a video up the damage. But as a reflection of the axis powers during the second war has highlighted the damage of the atomic bomb, without at all, and I'm a mere victims of their own appeal to the way fairly repulsive exhibiting, liner notes.

  • Although the memorial hall is just opposite the peace memorial museum and is admission-free (while the museum has an admission charge), the memorial hall is surprisingly much less crowded and much more quieter than the museum. It is a solemn place to pay respect to the victims and to reflect on the price of peace. Once I stepped into the hall and away from the noise and crowds, I instantly feel the emotions and impact of the place.
  • While far less crowded and prominent than the Peace Museum, the Memorial Hall is just as valuable and impactful. I'd recommend starting at the Peace Museum, and spending some time in the Memorial Hall to reflect. Very powerful.
  • No words to describe this experience.
  • 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.
