Located within a larger park commemorating the bombing of Hiroshima, Atomic Bomb Dome haunts with the memory of the lives lost during the attack. Now designated as a World Heritage Site, the former exhibition hall was the only building that remained standing near the bomb's hypocenter; today, it memorializes the 70,000 who perished immediately in the bombing, as well as the additional 70,000 who passed away from the bomb's aftereffects. Though you cannot enter the ruin, you can approach and circle the surrounding gate to see light flooding through the skeleton of the building. By using our Hiroshima trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Atomic Bomb Dome and other attractions in Hiroshima.

  • It's basically a walk around the building which has been reinforced preserving it for all these years. Make sure to see the Children's Shrine behind it.

  • This was the main reason we went to Hiroshima to see this Landmark Hard to imagine what happened that day and the consequences it had in later years.

  • This is an incredibly harrowing and poignant place. It is almost the exact location of the detonation of the atomic bomb. It is amazing that they have preserved it and it is a must see if you are visiting Hiroshima.
  • It is one of the iconic symbols of the tragic Hiroshima bombing in 1945. It is a must-see site. You can walk to the park for free and take pictures of the ruins. Right across is the Peace Park and Children’s memorial park.
