Located within a larger park commemorating the bombing of Hiroshima, Atomic Bomb Dome haunts with the memory of the lives lost during the attack. Now designated as a World Heritage Site, the former exhibition hall was the only building that remained standing near the bomb's hypocenter; today, it memorializes the 70,000 who perished immediately in the bombing, as well as the additional 70,000 who passed away from the bomb's aftereffects. Though you cannot enter the ruin, you can approach and circle the surrounding gate to see light flooding through the skeleton of the building.

There were so many cats at the site! Maybe local cats having a wonder? We saw different breeds on both days we visited it was very nice. The site was very clean and quiet. Respectful and able to sit and reflect on what happened here. So very important for the community.
This is one of the area to remind us that there should never be wars anymore. There are many memorial statues and buildings here, including the memorial peace museum. Take a walk in the morning, afternoon and evening to enjoy different views. Tram or street train are available within a short 10 minutes ride from Hiroshima station. Must visit area of Hiroshima
