Not associated directly with the atomic bombing.
Jul 2018 • Family
Despite the proximity to the Genbaku dome, this double monument is not associated directly with the atomic bombing. It is a monument to the children's writer Miekichi Suzuki, a native of Hiroshima, who died in 1936. It was erected in 1964 as a symbol of Hiroshima's return to normal life and overcoming post-atomic trauma. The sculptor was Katsuzo Entsuba. The inscription Akai tori (Red bird) is applied to the left monument with the bust of the writer. It's the name of his children's magazine. A quotation from Miekichi, in his handwriting, is inscribed on the right monument: I shall cherish my dream for eternity. Just like a young boy. So I worry less. Miekichi. Not a bad slogan for therapists.

Great statue

Very impressive statue to the writer Miekichi Suzuki who was born in Hiroshima. He was famous for writing a magazine for children where he suggested learning by observation.

Very sad
Mar 2018 • Couples
This is a very sad little memorial commemorating the famous Japanese novelist.
He was "lucky" that he died before the bomb was dropped.

I couldn't help thininkg about the Japanese animé called Hotaru no haka (Grave of the fireflies) as there were many children whose parents died during the bombing.
