Some may said it is the negative world heritage. However that is exactly why people should visit here. A serene site which reminds us of the perils of war and how much devastation can happen subsequently. This is where you see the history and learn from it.
A world heritage site. The only building to survive the 1945 nuclear bomb. The symbol of Hiroshima. The symbol for the power of nuclear weapons.
You really need to see this.
There is a strange aura around this building, the air was very heavy for me. It's a very strange experience looking upon and standing beside such a sight. It's situated next to the beautiful peace park and a serene river.
For a place that is the last standing memory of the bomb, its a very peaceful and relaxing place.
If you're in Hiroshima, you NEED to see it. No question.
A World Heritage Site and not surprisingly really, the Atomic Bomb Dome is a harrowing reminder of the end of the Second World War, and stands today as a symbol of peace. I find it truly amazing that the building wasn't destroyed completely. Definitely worth seeing.
