Peace Bell, Hiroshima

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Had a quick look at this place, too. As you walk around, you will see it in front of you,
  • The bell is located on the atomic dome side of the park. You can actually head up the path and walk into the bell area to ring it. You might have to wait if there's a lot of people wanting to ring the bell and take photos.
  • Beautiful memorial and symbol of peace. You can ring the bell yourself. Great experience.
  • Amazing place. Just amazing.
  • Spend a few hours to relax here.
