The solemn sound of the bell can be heard across the Peace Park as visitors ring it, showing their sympathy for the victims of Hiroshima, and their support for a world free of nuclear weapons.

This is in the peace park so is easily seen. You can actually "ring" the belll then stand under it as it reverberates. Our kids loved it.

Hiroshima is a place for reflection. Having thought about the terrible thing that happened here and read the inscription about the Bell, I thought about my little grandchildren and felt compelled to ring the bell as loudly as I could. More in hope than expectation I have to say. If history teaches us anything it is that history repeats itself.

Another well constructed monument in Peace Park. It is an impressive, solid bell - you are permitted to actually ring the bell, which is wonderful.

I liked how the plaque with the information on it encourages everyone to toll the bell for peace. So, you must when you're there!

While walking around occasionally you'd hear the bell get rung. Adults & kids all could ring it and it has a beautiful ring. All encompassed with the Peace Park!

Ring the Peace Bell so those will hear it around the world and that we can all live in peace. Let it remind us all of the tragedy of war. May nuclear weapons never be used again.

It's in the middle of the park, so add it to your list for the day here. Fun and meaningful way to get kids involved.
