Hiroshima peace park is a very beautiful park.
Like the name implies, the park is very peaceful despite heavy pedestrian traffic from tourists and school groups.
Like the A-Bomb Dome and the Museum. This is one of the must-see sights of Hiroshima.
There are many lovely statues and memorials within the park. All paying respect to different things, some are decorated with colorful origami cranes. Its a very heavy, but at the same time, lovely place.
If history is not really your thing, or all the war memorials make you too sad, the park is always good for a stroll or to relax.
The wander through Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is hard to put into words. Sadness engulfs the area, and a strange aura exists seventy years after the atomic bomb was dropped. A reminder of suffering, a memorial for the dead, and a strange overwhelming calm shimmers across the park. I visited with a friend, and neither of us spoke as we walked around. Buddhist monks were chanting close to the epicentre, and everyone walked with sombre expressions.
