The Peace Memorial Park was created in dedication to the victims of the Hiroshima atomic bombing and for the hope of world peace. The A-Bomb Dome was formerly the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall which was located just around 500 feet from the hypocenter of the atomic bomb. Due to the vaporization of the atomic bomb, the building did not completely collapse, leaving the skeletal remains to be preserved by Hiroshima as a reminder.

The tour will end in Hiroshima after some sightseeing back in Hiroshima. You can also extend your vacation before/ after this Anime Japan Tour in Hiroshima, Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto.
