Peace Park, Hiroshima

Chany's Shenanigans

Peace Park typically draws thousands of tourists to Hiroshima each year. After the tsunami in 2011 the number of tourists traveling to Japan fell to almost zero and remained relatively low for a long while after. The number of foreign travelers to Japan is slowly on the rise and this is most visible at hot spots like Hiroshima’s Peace Park. I visited Peace Park on my very first day in Hiroshima and spent many afternoons there during my 3 weeks in the city. Peace Park is everything you expect it to be and much more. After taking one step into the park you immediately realise that you’ve entered into a place which is of momentous significance. The A-bomb dome is haunting, yet such a remarkable testament to the strength and resilience of the people of Hiroshima.

Enjoy the photos
