I enjoyed seeing the former Hiroshima Prefecture Industrial Hall, but was a little disappointed that it was very securely fenced. While I understand that you don't want people taking souvenirs or defacing the building, it would have had more impact at closer range.

This was my second time to the Atomic Bomb Dome and this time it was actually more moving for me. Maybe because I took my time reading all the information that's posted near the Dome. Plus, I suggest viewing the Dome from different angles. In...More

As with a lot of what is found in Hiroshima regards the A bomb explosion it is a moving sight. Such a tragic lasting image

You see it and a feeling overcomes you of the destructive power of an atomic bomb. The twisted metal and the partially destroyed building tells a story without comment of the destructivebess of the bomb.

This site really brings home the destruction and devastation that occurred here when the city was hit by an atomic bomb.

Don't bother with a tour. It's simple to get around on foot and you can get headphones with English translation. Inexpensive and intensely moving experience. The City of Hiroshima is beautiful and very peaceful with wide... More

Hiroshima has plenty of places for sight seeing. Other than the Atomic Dome and Park, there are other places you can go. Their shopping district is good. I personally like it as it it's sheltered and you can walk and window... More
