This memorial was not as crowded as the Museum but gave a lot of useful information. Its design was simple and spread out with plenty of space which gave you more opportunity to pause and reflect. I would recommend doing both as they take different approaches. Both help your understanding of an horrific event.

A memorial hall for the Hiroshima incident and my God was it sad. The silence when you walk down into the main hall as you view the scenery. Just haunting, extremely sad and really brings across the message in a powerful way. Free-entry and definitely worth the visit.

Well!! It is over a half a century already but seeing the ruins that give a clear account on the cost of way makes one appreciate the value of peace. Visiting this site makes feel for the victims who perished in the war decades back. My tour of the memorial hall has made me commit to be an agent of... More

I found this tribute to the victims of the bombing to be very moving and much more informative than the museum. Downstairs in the circular room is the tribute however upstairs you can read people's accounts of that day. It gave me a better understanding of the impact of the bombing (I was not alive at the time) and the... More

Walking through the hallway and seeing the various information signs I wasn't sure what to expect, when we reached the bottom there was a mural made of small tiles that created a view of what Hiroshima city looked like after the explosion with a small fountain in the middle that filled the silence with the sound of flowing water. The... More

The Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims is a meaningful and necessary memorial to those that perished. It is housed within the 'Park' and therefore an easily visited after the museum. With that said, it is not essential in the same terms of the museum if one's schedule does not permit. It does elicit further reflection... More
