Hiroshima was hit by an atomic bomb in August 1945. Today, you can visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, Peace Park and Museum to learn more about this horrendous event which affected thousands of people.

Another way of learning more and discovering information not available in museums is to speak to Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Survivors, another fascinating addition to your list of Things to Do in Hiroshima.

Visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima on the 6th of each month to speak to survivors of the Atomic Bomb. In this video, I talk about the story of Takaaki Morikawa, who was just 6 years old at the time of the Hiroshima bomb. He provided fascinating and intreresting information relating to his experience during and after the atomic bomb.

Please note that I chose not to film the actual meeting for this video as I didn't feel comfortable; ie I didn't feel it would be respectful. Why not visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima to hear Takaaki's amazing and unimaginable story for yourselves!

Visiting HIROSHIMA Today: IS IT SAFE from RADIATION?!

Hiroshima today is a city transformed, but it's known for harrowing history. The Peace Memorial Park, Atomic Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Museum are very important for everybody to experience… but I didn’t expect to find so much fun on my city tour.

From tasty Okonomiyaki to craft breweries and rooftop bars. Hiroshima in 2019 is a really vibrant, modern place. But it also owns it’s history, presented best by the story of Sadako Sasaki.

This is my Hiroshima travel video, that I hope captures my thoughts and feelings of the place.

PLACES AND SIGHTS FEATURES IN THIS FILM:

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum - 0:40
Somewhere that everyone should visit in their lifetime. A poignant reflection on the bomb blast through interactive exits and artefacts.

Atomic Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome) - 1:00
The former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall is one of the few ruins left standing from the blast. It is now a centrepiece of the peace park and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site

Peace Memorial Park - 1:19
A beautiful place to visit, dedicated to the victims of the bomb. Very peaceful with several museums, memorials and art installations.

Hiroshima Trams - 1:37
The vintage trams have been a feature of the city since long before the bombing. They are still the best way to get around the city.

Orizuru Tower Hiroshima - 1:43
The best rooftop bar and viewpoint I visited in Japan, located right next to the Atomic Bomb Dome. A beautiful and modern design with several floors and interactive exhibits. It’s a great place to come with kids to learn about the history and a great spot to drink and unwind. You can also get down the building through a series of slides - lots of fun! There is a ¥1000 JPY entrance fee for tourists.

Okonomoyaki - 1:47
A savoury Japanese pancake and a native speciality dish of Hiroshima. Nagataya is a great restaurant to try it for the first time, but get there early - there’s always a queue!

Miyajima Ferry - 2:07
¥180 JPY for a one way trip, there is also a dedicated JR Line Ferry for anybody with a rail pass.

Itsukushima Shrine - 2:15
One of the most famous Torii gates/shrines in Japan. Partially submerged by water at high tide. You can view it from the land or take a boat through it.

Miyajima Brewery - 2:33
A great little stop for craft beer lovers on the Main Street on Miyajima island.

Hiroshima Carps - 2:35
The loudest and proudest baseball fans in the country! They play at the Mazda Zoom-Zoom Stadium. You can buy tickets at the stadium box office or from 711, Family Mart and Lawson.

Hiroshima Arcades - 2:48
There are a couple of Taito Stations in the city, which are good fun as always!

Paper Crane Memorial - 4:12
At the Hiroshima Orizuru Tower, you can make your own paper cranes to drop into the memorial on the 10th floor.

Are YOU planning a Japan trip in 2018? Looking for things to do in Hiroshima? The Onomichi Temple Walk is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture by checking out numerous Japanese shrines and temples (over 25 in Onomichi), visit Cat Alley and take the ropeway (or walk) up Mount Senko-ji.

However! Onomichi is a typical small Japanese town (almost like a ghost town and pretty deserted) with most local shops being closed on certain weekdays, which is frustrating! To actually find some life in Onomichi head to the area clos to Onomichi Station, where you can find Onomichi U2, with places to shop and eat.

Please note the negativity and sarcasm in this video is exactly that and is a reflection of how it can feel being in Japan for an extended period! Extreme honesty is a trademark of my channel and no offence is intended - Japan is awesome!

Overall Onomichi is probably a great place to visit in Japan, just not in early February when it's freezing cold and snowing!

peace and a multicultural spirit.

All visitors to this city are taken on a physical and spiritual journey. From the mouth-
watering fusions of Japanese and Chinese cuisine in Shinchi Chinatown district, to the
challenging realities exhibited in the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum.

This diverse paradox is what makes Nagasaki so uniquely special and such a wonderful contender for your next #vacation.

Field trip to Hiroshima to hear A-Bomb Survivor's story. (Student exchange in Japan)

We take the Shinkansen to Hiroshima to hear a survivor of the atomic bomb blast speak about their experience prior to, during and after that moment at 8:15am August 6th 1945. Definitely one of the most memorable moments from my exchange experience in Japan.

Something that surprised me was the survivor saying that there is almost a 'stigma' attached to survivors like her. That is, she said that she would love to get married one day...but nobody will marry her, because some survivors have given birth to children with problems (genetic defects caused by radiation). I believe she also said that while she was angry for a lot of her life, she no longer holds a grudge against the US...and that one of the most touching moments of her life was when a group of American students apologized to her on 'behalf' of their country.

I hope my video does not paint a picture of 'doom and gloom' for Hiroshima today...Today, it is a beautiful place where people go about everyday life like others around Japan. But the city has not forgotten their past, and works to ensure that the atomic bomb used against Nagasaki soon after the Hiroshima incident will remain the last of such weapons ever used in war.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is a museum located in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, in central Hiroshima, Japan, dedicated to documenting the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in World War II. The museum was established in August 1955 with the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Hall.
A focal point of that is the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. It sits across the Motoyasu River from the famous Atomic Bomb Genbaku Dome, which withstood a direct blast from the bomb.
The museum is elevated on a series of columns that overlooks greenery in every direction where there was once ruin and desolation.
Designed by Kenzō Tange and inaugurated in 1955, the museum is now a national and international symbol for peace.
Evocative exhibits at the museum include a blistered and fused tricycle that a 4-year-old boy was riding during the blast that burned him to death. Similar moments are invoked through artifacts as small as a wristwatch or a lunch box carried by a student who perished at school.
These give a sense of the pain and suffering of the victims and their bereaved families
Photos, documentary films, nightmarish drawings by survivors, scientific explanations of the explosion and artifacts such as melted glass and charred clothing hint at the unimaginable.
This museum was established by the city of Hiroshima to convey the reality of the atomic bombing to the world, and contribute to the total abolition of nuclear weapons, and realization of lasting world peace,
The museum is where visitors and survivors alike come together to learn more about attack and reflect on its consequences and humanity's future. It has attracted millions of visitors to the city and has consistently been the top rated museum in Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum designed by Mr. Kenzo Tange, opened in 1955, aiming to convey the reality of the damage incurred by an atomic bomb to people around the world, and to contribute to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of everlasting world peace.
At 8:15 a.m. on August 6, 1945, Hiroshima became the world's first city destroyed by an atomic bomb. The bomb destroyed most of the city and claimed many lives. Some victims, who barely survived, also terribly suffered both mentally and physically, and many of these survivors are still suffering.
The Peace Memorial Museum has collected and exhibited victims' mementos and photos as well as materials that show the devastating damage caused by the A-bombing. It introduces the history of Hiroshima before and after the bombing and the situation of the nuclear age.
The museum also holds lectures on the experiences of the A-bombing by survivors and lends out materials for peace education.
The museum was designated as an Important Cultural Asset of Japan in July, 2006, for the first time as post-war architecture.

A Moving and Poignant Re-Opening for the Main Building of the Peace Memorial Museum
The Main Building of the Peace Memorial Museum closed its doors in 2017 for renovation and fortification against earthquakes, and after two long years, the wait is finally over. Opened on April 25, just before Hiroshima Flower Festival and the unprecedented 10-day Golden Week holidays, the newly renovated Main Building Exhibition Hall is an emotional journey that combines photographs, artwork, artifacts, and stories from survivors to paint a complete picture of the events and aftermath of August 6, 1945.
The exhibit opens as visitors make their way down a darkened hallway, illuminated only by the soft spotlight on a black-and-white photograph of a young girl in bandages. As visitors proceed, they are met with large panels of photographs of Hiroshima along with captions from eyewitnesses in Japanese and English before coming to 3 larger-than-life photographs of the infamous mushroom cloud. The photos, complete with people looking on in the foreground for perspective, give visitors a sense of the overwhelming size of the blast in terms that are easy to understand. The rough black walls of the exhibit provides a stark contrast to the photographs, adding another level of focus and emotion. Visitors are kept in a state of semi-darkness, paralleling the darkness and uncertainty that followed the bombing.
From there, the exhibit proceeds chronologically from the bombing to the effects of radiation, black rain, the ensuing firestorm, and the survivors in post-war Hiroshima. Raw snapshots of the aftermath, including photographs that openly depict children suffering from burns, soldiers with radiation poisoning, and bodies lined up on the ground, may be hard to face for some visitors. But these photographs are perhaps the most powerful deterrent we have against nuclear weapons, and without them, the picture of what happened on August 6 would be incomplete.
From photographs to actual artifacts such as the well-known charred bento box and twisted bicycle, the exhibit carefully explains each one in Japanese and English, and provides an audio tour, as well as explanation
