Something everyone should do when they are in the park. Something about ringing the bell makes you feel a little more humble inside.

This is in the peace park. Fun ringing the bell but this is part of the area attraction. You certainly would not make a trip here to see this. Also if you forgot to see this or ring the bell it would not be a shame. This is part of the overall visit for the area...not a special item on... More

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.

It was lovely to hear the bell as you walked through the park and know that yet again another person if ringing this bell and thinking of Peace. Each of our family members took a turn to ring the bell and add our message of Peace throughout the park. The beautiful sound of the bell only further adds to the... More

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

It's a cool bell that you can ring yourself. It's a part of the peace park experience that is all very moving.

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.
