After enjoying the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Peace Boulevard, we come back to the Genbakudome-mae station. The next destination is Orizuru Tower. This building stands just in the midpoint of Genbakudome-mae station and Kamiyacho-nishi station. Opened in 2016 and it's already loved by not only tourists, but citizens too. The top floor, is a deck made of wood called the "Hill of Hiroshima" and wind blows though its space. Of course, you can see the Atomic Bomb Dome and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park from here, but on a clear day you an also get a view of Mt. Misen in Miyajima. In "Orizuru Park," on the 12th floor, you can make an orizuru with special paper and then throw it towards the "Orizuru Wall" right next to the park. This wall has already become a symbol of peace by the collected orizurus that visitors have thrown.
