  • When I went there was a group of students singing a peace song and the local station filming - I think, anyways; well worth the visit when in Hiroshima.  more »

  • An important visit and deeply moving. The museum itself is really emotional and so are the monuments, especially the children's memorial filled with origami cranes from all over the world. The setting is beautiful too. You can spend an afternoon quite easily to really give the park the attention it deserves.
  • This is the most memorable and meaningful park that I’ve ever visit. A very simple park but the significance that carry the event that had happened during the WW2. This park symbolises that PEACE is the paramount important in our current world. This park has carried the real meaning of peace the world should pursue! It’s located In the heart of Hiroshima. Nice peaceful park and it’s a MUST to visit this park when in Hiroshima!
  • If you visit Hiroshima, the Peace Memorial Park should be near the top of your list. There is so much to see, and you could easily spend the majority of your day at the park and different museums. The museum dedicated to the victims was especially, with a documentary shown at the end, consisting of first hand accounts. The Dome itself is also very errie. All of this is situated close to the city itself, so it's easy to access and leave. Lastly, please be respectful towards the rules on photography in the museum. I witnessed a tourist walk around snapping photo after photo inside the museum for the victims. I wanted to say something, but didn't want to cause a scene in such a quite place.
  • This place was beautifully sad. Such a great experience to walk the park and reflect. If you have time check out the museum next to it. Definitely worth a visit!
  • One of the most peaceful places on earth after what has happened to this place during 2nd world war! Absolute peace of mind and lush green gardens around you! This place shouldn't be missed at any cost if in Hiroshima, Japan. Wheel Chair Accessible, No tickets needed, Ample parking space, great place for long walks! And yes Indian Restaurant available along with other food joints!
