Peace Bell, Hiroshima

4.5
Ring Peace Bell, and remember the lives lost when the bomb fell on Hiroshima on the 6th of August, 1945. A statement in favor of universal peace and a monument to all lives lost in wartime, the bell displays a map of the world with each country depicted as borderless, symbolizing togetherness, fraternity, and shared identity. Visitors can toll the bell and listen to the sound ring out around the surrounding park. Created in 1964 by Masahiko Katori, a survivor of the Hiroshima bombing, the bell stands as a powerful argument against nuclear weapons. Peace Bell is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Hiroshima Edition.
