  • I meant many people died in the atomic bomb and the respects of its knowledge. To search for names of those who died at this facility and photo to one person at each of them we realized the sinfulness of nuclear weapons and war and I had daily life, family, joy and sorrow. Objects of water flowing in the Middle, for the victims of praying is like

  • Very moving video presentation exhibit. Our kids 9 and 11 were able to handle it, but we had prepared them for it before the day. It's in the middle of the park so just add it to your day here.  more »

  • 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
