The Park

The Atomic Bomb Dome, in its original design, was completed as the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotional Hall, by Czech architect Jan Letzel on April 5th, 1915. However, as it stood just 160 meters from the epicenter of the atomic bomb, it suffered severe damage from the blast. With a gutted steel frame and damaged exterior, its known colloquially as the Atomic Bomb Dome, a building that stands in testament to the tragic history unfolded here.

The interior remains off limits, but visitors to the Dome still able to visit the outside. There are also evening illuminations that provide a magical atmosphere you can’t experience during the day.

The Atomic Bomb Dome sits in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a place known for its Peace Bell, Children’s Peace Monument, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and other sites that commemorate those who passed.

Just steps away in the park, you can also find Hiroshima Orizuru Tower, a 13-floor multipurpose facility that offers up views of the Atomic Bomb Dome from above, or a Ferris Wheels with ample views from above.

    殘留下來的遺跡,是要提醒後人不要再犯同樣的錯誤。

    看到許多日本人學生旅行來這邊,每個人靜靜的哀悼因為戰爭而失去無辜的生命。

    參觀資料館看了一些歷史文獻相片,心情悶悶地,那霸還是在外面拍拍照就好

    原爆圓頂是當初原子彈爆炸後,沒有倒塌的建築物之一,原爆遺蹟被聯合國教育科學及文化組織登錄為世界遺產物,也代表祈求和平的理念,參觀完之後讓我感到非常的震驚😟
