You can't miss this if your in Hiroshima

This whole area is worth a reflective look. The Peace Park across the park has many hidden rewards for the thoughtful and keen walker.

The entire Peace Park is pivotal to any Hiroshima visit. It's also a great place to orientate yourself from.

The A-bomb dome is really a testimony of what happened in Hiroshima in 1945. This is probably the first thing you should visit when you go to Hiroshima for the first time. It's located close to the museum and other interesting monuments. Don't forgot to go see the hypocenter too.

Hard to believe that this structure survived the bombing of Hiroshima. It is quite striking and reminds one of the destruction that humankind can make. All world leaders need to see this up close and personal to remind them of their great responsibilities.

I've read several books on WWII and have seen many films on the subject. May future generations never forget what happened in Hiroshima. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemed to repeat it." Take some time to walk around the park and sit by the river.

This place makes me cry and give me the chills, I cannot just imagined the sufferings of the victims of this terrible event. The ruins is a great reminder that nothing can be gained from war.
