Most moving for me the poor tortured children of Hiroshima. Please don't allow your leaders to fool you into war . War punishes the innocent . All children are precious

It is so sad to see the impact the bomb had on the children or Hiroshima, especially in the story of Sadako. Spent a few moments walking among the origami cranes and thinking of the peoples whose wishes didn't come true.

There was some exhibition by children post cards for peace, but due to the rain it was closed and we could only see the monument. its beautiful sculpture of kids is nice. ensure you take full 360 view of the monument to admire its beauty.

There are often colourful collections of arts made by local schooling institutions kept inside a number of glass displays to remember the innocent children lost during conflict.

To remember the children who lost their lives in the horrific A bomb more than 70 years ago. A nice walk away from the museum.

People are constantly sending in paper cranes. They have displays of them in plastic boxes. It's quite amazing to see.

This monument has within it a large bell that was being constantly rang by adults! The children can look upon this a remember the ancestors who may have perished.

This monument is not far from Hiroshima Peace Museum, and most of visitors to Peace Memorial Park also visit it. Small cranes made of paper are the symbol of peace.
