Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chugoku / Hiroshima Prefecture / Hiroshima / Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
For a sobering reminder of the horrors of nuclear warfare, visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. One of the museum's two wings details the history of Hiroshima, the development of and decision to use the bomb, and the following discussions surrounding nuclear warfare and disarmament. The other wing goes into detail about the devastating damage and longer-term effects of the bomb. Don't miss the A-Bomb dome on site, one of the few buildings in the area that has been left in the same condition since the day of the bombing.

The highlight of our trip to Hiroshima. The most powerful museum I’ve ever visited in my life. My advice, bring a pack of tissue inside because the horror will definitely bring you to tears. I literally couldn’t stop crying seeing all the heartbreaking stories of those affected by the bombing. If you’re traveling to Japan or currently staying in Japan, I highly recommend you to put Hiroshima, specifically this museum, on your list. You won’t regret it.
Definitely a somber point in our tour through this glorious country. Very well done. Informative, interactive and very heartbreaking. A must see museum if in Hiroshima.
