  • From the ground immediately (350 m) of the elementary school. Only the building bombed was a reinforced building to balance was. Bombing of course most of the more than 400 students and teachers died, but the reality is still unclear, and only two that's survived. After that, building upon, some as a museum store, and public is. Transmitted from such as melted roof tiles or bins currently exhibited in the building at the time. It is from a tour, contact the school Office.

  • I visited after the ceremony of 8/6/2017. Door frame burnt by hot air, but intact. It was also ground zero in the old Museum of stone pillars, burnt out a familiar model. "When you get off the Hiroshima Station one in ashes ninoshima Island I could see" radiation victim's testimony reminded me.

  • A good piece of history that is often overlooked. Worth a stop, and free. Subject to school hours, so be careful when you go.
  • Good place for my kids
  • Not open on weekdays only. Prepared to respond on weekends because more and more overseas tourists.

This is because could not even listening to jungle in the international community, seeking reconciliation, talking opponents know from recent international developments. That's why must have not attacked other countries for military force. Because it is not helping other countries should somehow yourself. 20150523

Where to stay in Hiroshima

The majority of places to stay in Hiroshima concentrate in the areas surrounding the train station, the memorial museum and park, and a couple of main boulevards. Here you can find basic, comfortable, and clean hostels, dozens of mid-range business hotels, and a couple of pricier four- and five-star international chains, all of which offer easy access to any of the sights in this compact city. For an adventurous and very affordable overnight stay in Hiroshima, you can even sleep in private pods attached to the train station's south side.
