Peace Bell, Hiroshima
(4.3/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • Really emotional to watch people ring this bell, say a prayer and then do it yourself. There is a plaque on the bell to tell you exactly how to solemnly ring it. 
  • Another attraction of the complex of bomb that makes you reflect on all the events that occurred in Hiroshima. Touching.

  • The bell is in the Peace park so its easy to go and see. You can also play the bell if you want. Or atleast some people did.
