‪INTERESTING BUILDING‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪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, if only to view the contrast between "then" and "now"!‬
לבד • אפר׳ 2019
‪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 (built 1936), seamlessly integrated into the modern cityscape, but immediately after the bomb exploded this sturdily constructed building was one of the few buildings left standing in an otherwise sea of rubble. An illustrated signboard outside and an informative leaflet (available in English) provides all the details regarding this "free-to-enter" building. Unfortunately when I visited, I was unable to view the heat-affected vault in the Basement because the Basement area was closed-off for renovations (March ~ May 2019).‬

‪Worth visiting to see the basement vaults‬
לבד • אוק׳ 2018
‪I called in to the former Bank of Japan on my way from the Fukuromachi Elementary School to the Peace Museum. Initial impressions were that there was far less to see but after wandering around for a while I found the exhibition content in the basement areas, which were very atmospheric. At the time of my visit there was also an art display in the banking hall.
Good points:
+ An interesting comparison with the content in the nearby Elementary School museum
+ Free
Not so good points:
- I did not encounter any staff during my visit so there was no-one who could answer questions‬

‪Free attraction‬
זוגות • נוב׳ 2018
‪We were the only people visiting which made it a bit eerie. Free entry. Worth going down to see the bank vaults, then up to the second floor to see the director’s office where the wood panelling shows damage from the bomb.‬

‪An essential extension to a visit to the Peace Park‬
נוב׳ 2018
‪This old building is now part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, but doesn't seem to be promoted at the Peace Park. We noticed it when walking along the road from the nearby Fukuromachi tram stop (close to Peace Avenue). I think the ground floor, the main banking hall, is used for various unconnected art or photography exhibitions; downstairs is where I recommend you go for an exhibition of art-work done by survivors in the 1970s, ie 30 years after the dropping of the bomb. Survivors of all ages had been encouraged to draw or paint what they could remember seeing. Included in this is the picture of the hand with finger tips burning, which is featured in the film shown at the main museum. There are also donated photographs taken by US military and navy, of the city before the bomb, immediately after the bomb, and later during the re-building of the city. I found this collection really moving. I also had the chance to make a paper crane, something I'd expected to be able to do somewhere at the Peace Park, but hadn't found during our visit. ‬

‪Large building survived the bomb and functioned‬
זוגות • אוק׳ 2018
‪This large 20th century western style masonry building housed the Bank of Japan. It survived the blast as did some people who were in the basement. The bank opened shortly after the bombing to enable people to function and to help to normalize life. You can wander through the banking floor, offices above and the basement with the vaults. There is an interesting, albeit very simple "old fashioned" exhibit below with photos of the city and the bombing, historical accounts from both sides and art from survivors. It is a somber but appropriate reminder. Integral part of the Peace Park experience.‬

‪Worth it to see the pictures and the bank vault‬
זוגות • אוק׳ 2018
‪The old Bank of Japan building is just 400 metres from the Peace Park. It is well worth the walk. Entry is free. This week there is an exhibition of beautiful hand made lamps. In the basement there are paintings by eye witnesses to the A bomb explosion. It was very moving. Do go there.‬

‪Somber Visit‬
חברים • ספט׳ 2018
‪We visited Hiroshima to pay respect to the sites related to the devastation caused by the A-Bomb. The former bank building houses many remembrance exhibits, as well as the actual bank vaults showing damage caused by the bombing.
No entry fee is charged, you simply visit and come and go as you wish. I recommend for anybody visiting and wishing to see a part of history that remains.‬

‪Only saw it from the outside. An easy walk from the Peace Memorial. A very high building and from what our tour guide mentioned existed prior to the A-Bomb and has undergone massive restoration since then. I wish we would have time to see the art exhibit inside on the main floor. ‬

‪Harrowing experience ‬
משפחה • דצמ׳ 2017
‪First floor of the bank is used for an art exhibition; the rest of the floors contain exhibits regarding the war.

In the basement, there were paintings drawn by survivors of the atomic bomb ordeal, describing the scene after the war. Really scary experience. The quietness of the vault adds to the reflective mood. Such force - is it necessary?‬
