We visited the A-bomb dome first and waled here. It is a beautiful little memorial that recognises the children killed during the bombing. The memorial is in the shape of a lovely tower and there are 8 doves perched on location around the tower along...More

You will discover this on the edge of peace park and like the children's monument a place you should visit.

Erected to commemorate the children mobilised as part of the Japanese war effort, this monument poignantly reminds us of the terrible cost of war. After visiting the Memorial Museum you realise that many of the casualties from the atomic blast were young children. A sad...More

We were not aware of all the extra children who were in the city the day of the bombing, so this memorial and its audio explanation were very helpful to us. So tragic. The spot is peaceful; a nice recognition of the children who were...More
