The park succeeds in not only being a memorial to peace but with providing a place of peace after the intensity of visiting the the Dome and Museum. It was beautiful in occasional showers of very light rain when we were there. There are a number points of interest around the park like the display of thousands and thousands of... More

We walked through this park from the Atomic Bomb Dome on our way to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. It’s quite a large park with various memorials including the Children’s Peace Monument, Flame of Peace, and the Cenotaph for A-Bomb Victims. We took the hop-on-hop-off bus straight from the Shinkansen Train Station to get here. The bus ride was free... More

The Memorial Park is vast and encompasses a whole array of other memorials within it. Definitely take your time to walk around it.

Just across the river from the A-bomb Dome, this peaceful park is where you can't help but contemplate terrible consequences of war (any war really) especially to those who have nothing to do with it! In any case, to pay respect to the innocent civilians of the atomic blast that this place is dedicated to, you could ring the Peace... More

Great park to visit and a short walk to the museum or the A-Bomb dome. Lots to see in the park and found myself wondering around for hours reading all the history. A must see if you are in the city.

This beautiful park is a memorial to all the victims of the atomic bomb attack. We visited in a light rain, which seemed very appropriate.

The reverence, the tranquility, the beauty is overwhelming when you consider the devastation that made this place possible.

The combination of elements in the park avoids both sentimentality and excessive emotion, while respecting the need to honour the victims. I really appreciated the bell, which anybody can sound, and which remains in the memory for a long time. The layout, lined up to the dome building, works well. With the Autumn colours, it looked particularly peaceful.

It's solemn and a good place to contemplate. Autumn is the best time to visit, seeing reds and yellows in the area. Afterwards you can visit the shopping street - Hondori, it's just walking distance from the park.

You cannot miss it when in Hiroshima. It goes from the A bomb dome up to the museum. Stay there a bit and think deep.
