  • My partner and I visited Hiroshima during our stay in Japan. We went there one day, without making night. The Loop Bus, which is the typical tourist bus that leaves you in the main places to visit in the city is included with the Japan Rail. The first stop was at the peace MEMORIAL Park LA, which boasts more than 100,000 square metres of space in which there are several monuments that make reference to the atomic bomb (Museum, Dome, monument) to the peace of the children, etc.. Among them is the room national peace, built in memory of the victims of the atomic bomb, whose library is interesting because you can see photos and videos of the time, in individual posts. We saw the heartbreaking testimony video of one of the survivors. It is a place that, even though you have little time to spend in Hiroshima, it's interesting to walk around and soak up the atmosphere.

  • A beautiful place in memory of those who lost their lives in such a horrific event. Free to enter and a clean clear open area where you can see the names of all the innocents. May they never be forgot...  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 place to reflect and understand how import is peace to all.
