This remnant skeleton of a large building that was exposed to the Atomic bomb. Most of the structure was destroyed and this Skelton is what was left within a large radius around it. One can easily imagine the power of the bomb that sucked out...More

This building is probably the most photographed building in Hiroshima. Definitely iconic of the city. Most importantly however it is a symbol of man’s capability of destroying societies through the use of nuclear weapons. The emotional impact of seeing the skeletal remains of the Hiroshima...More

The Hiroshima memorial area was quite interesting - lots of things to see and reflect on the impact this event had.

The atomic bomb Dome is a great place to go to while on Hiroshima with other memorials nearby. The Atomic bom Dome is an incredible structure that has somehow survived the Atomic bombings in 1945 and it is a must visit!

A beautiful memorial to the harsh memories of the atomic bomb. You can't come to Hiroshima and not visit this site.

This is a very sombre monument but so important to see. You are able to get very close to it and see the damage it sustained and really makes you think. A must see

Night viewing when no other visitors are nearby gives the backlit Atomic Bomb Dome an eerie feeling. The twisted metal beams and scortched concrete of the Dome are best appreciated in complete silence. Revisit during the day amidst the crowds and you will find it...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

It is in an open park so it is always open. The whole park has various places within it, one site being the Atomic Bomb some. the museums keep open and closing hours. Hope this helps.
