The dome and ground-zero are a “must do” if you are in Hiroshima. You can see photos of the dome a million times in books and TV but when you see it in person, up close, the loss of life and tragedy of that day...More

Stark but critically important. Start your visit here and wander around the periphery of the building. The shuttle bus 'Meripura-pu' stops here. Nice 15 min visit - views of he river here and of the local feeding birds. Some nice photo opportunities. Near to near...More

A must see, but very sad part of history. Hope we never have to witness anything like this again, can’t help but be touched by the whole situation.

Without a doubt, Hiroshima and A-Bomb ground-zero area should be visited as part of any trip to Japan. We started the day as a tourist.. we ended the day having a real perspective on Japan, the world we live in and how humanity can recover...More

The frame of the structure inexplicably stands amidst a rebuilt Hiroshima, juxtaposed against gleaming high rises and robust foliage, unimaginably defying the ferocity of the horrendous atomic bomb that exploded 2,000 feet above...More

It is a moving experience and a stark reminder of what occurred in the past. Very educational (the museum is only ¥200 entry) and something which won’t be forgotten any time soon

Seeing the remnants of the building and contrasting it to the original photo was quite interesting. Also quite amazing to realise that you are standing at the hypocentre of the blast. It is situated in the peace memorial park.

We saw the dome on a very rainy day. Highly emotional site with the Peace museum, the park and the flame to remind mankind about the devastation that nuclear weapons cause. Very important in today’s times when Head of countries sometimes compare the size of...More

The A Bomb dome is perhaps one of the most iconic structures on the planet, instantly recognisable as the enduring symbol of the moment when the A bomb exploded just a few hundred metres from here and obliterated the city in an instant. History is...More

Don't bother with a tour. It's simple to get around on foot and you can get headphones with English translation. Inexpensive and intensely moving experience. The City of Hiroshima is beautiful and very peaceful with wide... More

Hiroshima has plenty of places for sight seeing. Other than the Atomic Dome and Park, there are other places you can go. Their shopping district is good. I personally like it as it it's sheltered and you can walk and window... More
