  • It is on the street of one back road from the bag town of Hiroden. It faces a very present elementary school. Just like the Atomic Bomb Museum, it's heartbreaking.

  • This is the elementary school where I graduated. It seems not to be able to enter without permission in the elementary school any longer, but only here can enter, and it reminds me of the elementary school time. I heard that people were gone here, so I thought i was a little scared even now when I got older.

  • Very simple, small museum. It is only impressive if you have heard the history of the place from John Hershey's book Hiroshima. Otherwise it will feel lacking. An important stop for history lovers.
  • This is both sad, poignant and uplifting at the same time providing another opportunity to see the unimaginable terror and awfulness of what happened but also how people made huge efforts to help survivors afterwards. The guide was excellent but it is easy to walk around on your own to learn the story. Sadly this is not visited by many people.
