This is a very quiet and peaceful place. It is best to visit after the Museum . You see the pictures and video of those who lost their lives here.

Hiroshima is a peaceful city, unlike crowded Tokyo, that is full of humbled,polite people who are helpful to strangers and are so honest. My tiny 4'8" wife feels very safe there and has no problem trusting the people we meet. Hiroshima has turned into a beautiful city worthy of international visits with food to satisfy almost every palate! Tourists can... More

The monument houses a library with written testimonies of survivors. Extremely moving, as each personal story conveys the magnitude and utter horror and devastation of this tragic event! Definitely worth spending some time here.

It is a cold quiet place to visit, I was alone beside the guards. The video shows are very informative. I reckoned the innocent victims killed and suffered were the terrible horrible war decision made by the higher level government then.

The memorial is located near to the museum and while you might be tempted to head straight there, you should pay a visit to this place. Entry is free. I won't say too much as you need to experience it for yourself. I was really moved - make sure you have some tissues to hand.

This, again is a must see... I was extremely impressed that the plaques showed the remorse for their part in WW2 and acknowledge the devastating impact impact it had on Hiroshima and the world...

This memorial, while very moving, is also excellently done and though provoking. I am very glad I visited the memorial and took the time to reflect on what war is capable of and how many innocent people perished because of it.

It's a must visit this place; a little bit less visited that the museum, but it's interesting know anything about victims; the main hall it's quite thrilling, because while hearing the water sound I was imagining all the mess it was provoked by the bomb.

The only other time I have had this sense was at Yad Veshem the Holocaust memorial. What ever you do, of you are in Japan for more than a week, use the bullet trains, fly etc it will educate and aid your understanding of why Japan will never have nuclear weapons. We bought a JR 5 day West rail pass... More
