  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Excellent place, I discovered it by accident starting out for the day. Right around the corner from Crown Plaza Hotel, suffered nearly direct hit from Atomic Bomb on June 6th reopened June 8th one day before Nagasaki was bombed. Very interesting displays throughout the building, the vaults and 1st and 2nd floors withstood the blast intact, amazing atmosphere, read everything and photograph it and don't forget it. Spent roughly an hour soaking up the atmosphere, amazing vaults, free of charge when I checked out an art exhibit, must see in Hiroshima
  • 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.
