Une des fameuses places d'Hiroschima. L'entrée n'est vraiment pas cher. Tout est en japonais et en anglais. On se rend mieux compte des dégâts qu'à pu connaitre la ville. more »One of Hiroschima's famous squares. The entrance is really cheap. It's all in Japanese and English. We are more aware of the damage than we knew about the city.
Lots of reading means you can easily spend hours here, but the information is well organized, compelling and easy to follow. It will give you chills but it is an important educational experience. Having traveled to other "war" museums I felt the presentation of information was very factual and non-biased, which is a difficult achievement. Highly recommend to all visitors.
An absolutely must in Japan! The heavy meaning of the memorial and the museums in the zone is to great for humanity. I suggest to expend from 2-3h in there to access the museum, read the meaning of every location and memorial. An excellent place for reflection as an human being.
