  • Probably the most memorable park I've ever been to. It displays the legacy of the Hiroshima city, which was the victim of world's first nuclear attack. It is said that this park was build in an open field which was created by the explosion and today, there are number of monuments and a museum within the premises. This is not just a memorial of the 1945 devastation, but also an icon that urges on world peace and stand against nuclear weapons. It is so touching to see most of the locals who passes by the park stops for a few seconds to bow and pay their respect to the victims.
  • A very humbling and interesting place to see. I'd highly recommend it to anyone. I was there early in the morning so there wasn't any crowd at all, the best way to see it in my opinion. Walked around the whole park reading the signs and then took a tour of the museum. Something that stood out to me is the respect the locals give to the Memorial, if you stood and watched for a bit you'd see them on their way to work or doing some task and they would stop for a minute, pay their respects, bow, and then move on. The memory lives on and this park is a fabulous tribute.
  • One of the most memorable parks I have ever been to. It takes up the tip of a small island inside the heart of Hiroshima and the walk to, inside and from the park is extraordinary. But the scenery is only part of its appeal. An an American, it made me feel a variety of emotions, and I am so happy to see how far our countries have come and to see the city of Hiroshima flourish.
  • I was there last month and i was interested to the way that Japanese use to explain their position against irregular weapons and their review of history specially during the second war. All the respects to that innocent souls of nuclear attack's victims.
  • The memorial park has been designed with great care and foresight. The monuments will serve as a reminder forever. Three structures align with the vault creating the starting point looking through the eternal flame to the atomic dome. Beautiful albeit its construction borne out of indescribable tragedy.
