  • I learned more about the whole Hiroshima story here than I did at the much more popular Peace Memorial Museum - there are unforgettable short films of testimonies from survivors and very somber lists ...  more »

  • 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.
  • A must see to remember the horrors of war and never never forget the human folly. Touching indeed!
  • 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.
  • A lovely quick memorial museum that is a very emotional experience. Definitely worth the visit.
