The Atomic Bomb Dome
4.4/5
119 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site
The first blast vault, otherwise called the Hiroshima Peace Monument, is situated on the banks of the Yuan Anchuan River in the focal point of Hiroshima. In 1945, the US military besieged Hiroshima with a nuclear bomb. About every one of the structures close to the blast focus were wrecked to the ground. Just the arch was scarcely standing and not dumped. The site of the building is presently safeguarded as a commemoration to the occasion and is incorporated into the World Heritage List. The inside of the building is not open and must be seen outside the fence around it. The semi-roundabout steel outline shape and broken dividers at the best are recorded witnesses.
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park

City Park
This museum is, from a moral and historical standpoint, one that perhaps all visitors to Hiroshima should visit. It contains heartbreaking and informative exhibitions and items connected with that fateful August 6th day in 1945. In addition to historical records, contemporary exhibits here attest to the continued threat of nuclear arms. There is thankfully a wealth of information in English for the international visitor. The museum is located in Peace Memorial Park .
