  • An important visit and deeply moving. The museum itself is really emotional and so are the monuments, especially the children's memorial filled with origami cranes from all over the world. The setting is beautiful too. You can spend an afternoon quite easily to really give the park the attention it deserves.
  • This is the most memorable and meaningful park that I’ve ever visit. A very simple park but the significance that carry the event that had happened during the WW2. This park symbolises that PEACE is the paramount important in our current world. This park has carried the real meaning of peace the world should pursue! It’s located In the heart of Hiroshima. Nice peaceful park and it’s a MUST to visit this park when in Hiroshima!
