Too bad it was a wet day

Unfortunately we didn't get to see the cranes out because it was snowing it it was still a lovely peace monument. Truly momentous in the context of the dome and the museum.

This was another favourite of the park. Very visually nice. So lovely the faded old paper cranes are reused - you see them in the museum. Many people ringing the bell of memory.

Great opportunity to imagine what would it happen inside children's mind during and after bombing; If you visit the area with a total open learning mood, it gonna be an amazing experience.

Thousands of children died on August 6, 1945. Many more died soon thereafter from their burns and injuries. And many more in the years that followed from the cancers and other ailments they developed from exposure to the radiation. The monument itself is not much to see, but the meaning is profound. Recommended.

The memorial is inspired by the life after the bomb of a young girl, who survived the initial explosion and it immediate aftermath, yet eventually lost her life due to the consequences some years later. Her life moved a nation to celebrate Peace. The origami cranes, which you will see when you go there, connect the youth of today with... More

This monument tells the story of Sadako, who died of leukemia due to radiation exposure in Hiroshima, and memorializes the many children who lost their lives in the atomic bombing. Once you visit, you will understand the many chains of paper cranes.

Bring your pre made paper cranes and add them to the exhibit--they have forms waiting for you to fill out to tell where the cranes came from. Be a part of history in this lovely memorial!

Maybe everyone knows the story of Sadako but it was so touching hearing the bell and mourning all the children lost, in the silence of the moment.. A memorial to all the innocents, the victims that couldn't have a life..

This place dedicated to many children that died from the bomb immediately and later. Sadako representing those children. There are peace bell under Sadako monument and many paper crane. Visitors should consider about the damage caused by the eruption. This is why so many children have died in that time.
