This is of course a historical monument, just a little spoiling with big new buildings so close in. It was best to visit this in the evening when it is lighted up. It is a must see if you go to Hiroshima.

It is remarkable to see how devastating the initial blast was. We read the literature on the bombing and how much damage was caused, but seeing the aftermath in pictures and in real physical form are far different. A worthy reminder of the terrible consequences...More

The area is beautiful. Not to lessen the area but it is like going to the Alamo. You see the aftermath in pictures and when you get there there is a big city that is built up all around it. The Japanese people are very...More

If you’re in Hiroshima you simply must visit the remains of the atomic bomb dome. To see what has been left is thought provoking and harrowing at the same time. You can walk along the river towards the peace park and museum from here -...More

Nothing much to say, just come visit to see, feel. Less than 30 mins reach from hiroshima station by tram. Calm place alongside ota river. The dome is well deserved. Peace.

The Hiroshima peace dome is what was left standing after the atomic bomb detonated about 600 m above the building which was the Hiroshima exhibition building. The locals decided to keep it as a reminder of man’s folly and the futility of war. It is...More

Definitely worth visiting, if nothing but to think about what happening to Hiroshima many years ago. Quiet, reflective, and a beautiful river juxtaposed the horror that happened at this very point.

There is no activity, just silence. You stare and think about what happened. There is a plaque telling you who was in there. It's a beautiful building standing for future peace. I've visited it twice now just to stare and think.

Such destruction of such a bomb just takes your breath away. It's great that they keep the building in exact the state as directly after the explosion. I can recommend the museum nearby as well!

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
