  • Bumped into this walking through the city streets, don't know if it had access, I didn't see any. it looks old enough to have been one of the surviving buildings, but don't think so.  more »
  • Worth making the detour from the nearby 'A-Bomb Dome' to this 'Former Bank of Japan', if only to view the contrast between "then" (1945) and "now". Today it is just an interesting old building...  more »
  • This is quite eerie inside. We saw no staff or visitors when we were walking around. Its a great building and one of the few to survive the bombing, only one person in the building survived because they were in the basement. It needs to be better utilised. The vaults and the huge (thick) doors are impressive.
  • It has a really creepy vibe. The fact that I was the only person in the building made it extra creepy. Most of the rooms were empty and the basement floor was closed off. No one was there so I walked around the basement anyways.
