  • It is a stately two-story building yokoamicho Park between the two countries. Article shows the paintings tell the Tokyo air raids of earthquake devastation in the hotel, photographs, mementos, reconstruction, such as had been displayed. Mementos of the disaster was exhibited on the outside. I think content compared to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum by no means inferior. Admission is free, but the hotel is prohibited.

  • Free to enter and see. Explanations in Japanese and English for most items. Shows the horrors of two major events in Japanese history in the 20th century. Also showcases the resilience and recovery from the events.
  • Incredible building. If you're nearby, worth coming to see and pay tribute to people who died during earthquake.
  • Nice place. Near by the edo museum. This is a little park. In the museum hall are many to see. Its for free.
  • It's the place where other than the A-bomb, many series of unfortunate events happened to the people along the period.
  • It was built as a facility to mourn those who died in the earthquake originally. Together to mourn people killed at this time, and even after the Tokyo air raids of the war affected areas, its current name. Earthquake is a natural disaster the war is man-made, and the 2 degrees and hope.
