The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is evocative and moving. In the background the Atomic Bomb Dome, one of the surviving structures close to the hypocentre of the blast can be seen. The museum skillfully covers the political history, science and personal stories relating to the events of August 6, 1945. Although it avoids blame for the event, there are strongly worded pleas for a nuclear-free existence. One exhibit shows telegrams sent from the Mayor of Hiroshima each time a nation performs a nuclear test.
