“Children's Peace Monument”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was a delightful and moving place to visit and if you have any children a must see. We spent some time there just thinking about the stories of the children who were effected by the bomb.

“Terribly sad”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Very simple monument to remember those children that died on that fateful day. Another site held in great respect by locals who often ring the bell that you can hear as you walk around the park. A focal point or the many school parties visiting the site.

“Beautiful Monument”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This was a lovely monument to visit and we were lucky enough to see a group of school children present their Origami Cranes and sing with their teacher. A very moving ceremony and were were privaledged to see the children.

“Something to think about”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

When you hear the story behind the Children's Peace Monument I don't think you can help standing there for a few more seconds just to process the true horror that was faced by this girl, and appreciate the spirit she had as she faced death.
