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.
Peace Bell Reviews
平和記念資料館が9時30分に開くので、それまで原爆ドームなどを散策していました。すると9時30分に係の人が来て、平和の鐘をつける準備に取りかかりました。それまでは立ち入り禁止です。よって、朝一番の波岩の鐘をつきました。鐘づくりの人間国宝である香取正彦氏の作品だそうです。 more »The Peace Memorial Museum opened at 9:30, so we had been walking around the Atomic Bomb Dome. Then, at 9:30, the person in charge came and prepared to put the peace bell. Until then, it is off limits. Therefore, the bell of the wave rock of the first wave rock in the morning was turned on. It seems to be the work of Masahiko Katori who is a human national treasure of the bell making.
So many monuments to see in Peace Park, and tribute to peace. Children’s groups met here. It was very busy more »
Hiroshima memory place is a must visit. So humbling, emotional, beautiful. A must visit.
Interesting historical landmark. Didn't realise the amount of other languages on the bell. The bell can actually be rung which I didn't expect. If you walk over the T bridge it will lead you in the direction of the bell.
