Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • The remarkable remaining of Hiroshima Prefecture Industrial Promotion Hall, is now called as Atomic Dome, was in the area of the first atomic bomb exploded on 6 August 1945. It is now served as symbol of both horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.
