The peace bell adds another dimension to Peace Park and all the other monuments, statues etc. When you hear the bell ring you cannot help but think about what happened here all those years ago and the suffering the people of Hiroshima endured. You can also stand and queue to ring the bell and pray.

This is within the Peace Memorial Park and definitely one of the memorials to be seen. It is surrounded by lovely planting and designed beautifully. Calming and poignant.

Get a map to fully understand the Peace Park within which you will find there are many monuments to see ... all of which have a message to tell. In there is the Peace Bell, of which in fact there are three. The most popular stands close to the Childrens Peace Memorial in a kinda upside down open structure. You... More

One of the many monuments in the Peace Park. Situated at the top end near the entrance by the T shaped bridge. Queue up here to ring this massive bell and pray for peace.

Make sure you see this as part of a visit to the memorial park and Bomb Dome. You don' t have to spend long here but I have to say that going to ring the bell made me very emotional and was an experience I wouldn't like to miss.

It was a blue skies and a few tourists around, and we took turn to ring the bell for peace. I can see from every faces of each tourist that they prayed for peace and hoping the world can hear. It was a moving experience.
