This is a large water feature that you come to as you walk from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and the A Bomb Dome building. It is a monument dedicated to those who died on the day the bomb was dropped and those who died because of it later. It is a moment to reflect on the enormity of that day and the lives it took in an instant. May it never happen again.

The Cenotaph and the eternal flame is built in memorial of those who lost their lives in the Atomic Bombing. Many people come here to pay their respects.

A must visit in Hiroshima..

A very thought provoking and moving place to visit. Great to see many Japanese school children visiting and paying their respects. Free to visit and located in the peace park.

The walk from the Peace Park will take you past the eternal flame and end the cenotaph. No doubt this is held in high respect by the Japanese as in the space of 10 minutes, two elderly Japanese paused, bowed and continued their walk. A good photo opportunity and another place to stop and reflect on 6/8/45

Easily seen during daylight yet I think it would be most poignant at night seeing the flame burning after dark. Gives you a cause to pause and think of everything that let up to the events of 8/6/45.
