Definitely go here if you can. The information is important to take in. The museum was under construction when we went, so we didn’t see the whole thing, but we still got plenty of info.

The ramp down to the main room gives one time to contemplate what occurred here. The memorial room itself with 400,000 ties to create a 360 degree picture is stunning. Back upstairs there is an extensive library of video testimonials. Very impactful

Hiroshima happened about 70 years ago, the world needs to keep this in mind as the US and other countries posture today.

Beautifully and thoughtfully laid out, this is worth a visit. Note the process the architects followed to make this memorial. Wonderful.

This is a place you must visit. It is a simple memorial that just floors you. Too many were lost in such a short space of time.
