A leafy and peaceful expanse of green in the heart of the city, it’s hard to not be moved by the beauty of Hiroshima’s Memorial Park. There are many memorials dotted through the park to the 70,000 victims of the world’s first atomic bombing, the most striking of which are the A-Bomb Dome, the ruined remains of the Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall, and the Flame of Peace, which will burn until the last nuclear weapon is destroyed. The park’s museum contains exhibits on the build-up to World War II and Hiroshima’s role in the war and information on the bombing and its effects.
What better way to experience it than on a Wendy Wu tour?
