The highlight of our trip to Hiroshima. The most powerful museum I’ve ever visited in my life. My advice, bring a pack of tissue inside because the horror will definitely bring you to tears. I literally couldn’t stop crying seeing all the heartbreaking stories of those affected by the bombing. If you’re traveling to Japan or currently staying in Japan, I highly recommend you to put Hiroshima, specifically this museum, on your list. You won’t regret it.
Definitely a somber point in our tour through this glorious country. Very well done. Informative, interactive and very heartbreaking. A must see museum if in Hiroshima.
