The Peace Park is a wonderful place to walk, and escape the downtown area of Hiroshima. With winding trails and footpaths, bring your walking shoes because there is a lot of ground to cover. Mainly are many memorials to those who lost their lives in the dropping of the Atomic Bombs
A morbid feeling definitely creeps into your soul when you visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, but in a way where it humbles the person you are by seeing exactly how much destruction and loss was endured during the time of the atomic bomb. I can't even put into words how I felt the entire time I went through the museum and even walking the grounds of where all the destruction occurred. The reigning message that was spread throughout this place was definitely of peace. Peace after such tragedy and horror. I recommend visiting this place to really get a sense of how it would feel, even just a tiny bit, if our lives were to ever be affected by such a catastrophic event. So powerful. I remember it like it was yesterday.
You learn a lot from this museum. It is very interesting.
When Hiroshima was mostly destroyed by an atomic bomb, some brilliant historic preservation planner decided the tragic history should not be completely erased from material memory. The result was this poignant museum of the effects of bombing real, regular people, highlighted by a building whose dome was blown out by the blast. It would be difficult for anyone not to be moved by this park.
