Suggestions for sightseeing- Hiroshima


| May 15, 2020

Hiroshima is widely known for the events of 6 August 1945, when the city became the world's first to be visited by the horrors of nuclear holocaust. The events of that day are etched forever in the minds of Hiroshima's population and the city is full of reminders, none more poignant than the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, or A-bomb dome, with its skeletal shell that has been preserved as a symbol of the devastation of nuclear war. The Peace Museum and the open expanses of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park with the eternal flame that will burn until the last nuclear weapon is destroyed, are essential stops on any visit to the city.
