About National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims

A solemn memorial space dedicated to the victims of the atomic bombing.

Includes large archives and memoirs (mostly in Japanese), but often features video interviews and recitals of these memorials and poems. An incredibly touching and poignant space, more focussed on the human stories than the Peace Museum next door.
