If it wasn't for one of the park's maps pointing out the Gates of Peace, I would not have gone to see it. It is directly across the street from the Peace Memorial Museum. On the gates are inscribed the word "peace" in many languages.

The Gates of Peace are located just to the east of the Peace Park on the far side of a major highway. Sitting detached from the park they are little visited and seem almost an afterthought. While they are impressive in their own right they are not nearly as moving as the monuments dedicated to the lives lost in the... More

On opposite side of road to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The glass arches with inscription of the word “Peace” in different languages. Pigeons seemed to be guarding the gates on one winter day.

Positioned at the gate of peace memorial park. A structure consisting of a rectangular array of strings placed in sequence at close range, about 9 feet tall each and aesthetically very beautiful, but the main feature are all those many written on it in almost 50 different languages. Very interesting is to visit it during the day but even more... More

Another well defined and sensitive memorial depicting the whole process to peace and the challenges to this city following the first aggressive use of the Nuclear/ Atomic Bomb. Another lasting memory.

Running along Peace Boulevard on the south perimeter of the Peace Park. These ten large gates covered in peace written in 49 languages, were built to mark the 60th anniversary of the bombing. They are best seen at night.

It was quite something to walk through the gates of peace, seeing all of the different languages that had been used, giving the feeling that peace is wanted from all over the world.

Totally worth it! Great place, great view, great history. It's just sad all those people blocking the view to take pictures of it instead of just watching it...

If you're at the Peace Memorial Park, after visiting the Cenotaph, keep walking towards the fountain, past the bronze mother/child statue, and cross Heiwa Odori, you would be at Gates of Peace. This is a series of rectangular "gates" with writings of peace in all different languages. In fact, you can see white posts wishing for world peace throughout Japan... More
