Located in the heart of Hiroshima, the Peace Memorial Park is a peaceful, green expanse dedicated to the memory of those who died when, or due to the effects of, the atomic bomb being dropped on the city in 1945. Created in 1954, the park encompasses a number of memorials including the Memorial Cenotaph, which stands over a stone chest that holds the names of all the bomb’s victims, the Children’s Peace Monument, and the Flame of Peace. Also here is the Peace Memorial Museum and the striking Atomic Bomb Dome. A place of reflection and education, the park is Hiroshima’s way of contributing to a more peaceful world in the future, and it is done beautifully.
