Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chugoku / Hiroshima Prefecture / Hiroshima / Naka / Children's Peace Monument
When in Hiroshima, pay a visit to Children's Peace Monument, a touching memorial dedicated to Sadako Sasaki and the thousands of other children who died as a result of the atomic bomb. Acquaint yourself with the moving story of Sadako, a little girl who developed leukemia from being exposed to radiation in the fallout of the 1945 bombing. Sadako believed that a person who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, and so she kept making them in an effort to wish for world peace, until her death in 1955 at the age of 12. Pay your respects by donating a crane, a symbol of peace, in remembrance of Sadako and other child victims of the war. Put Children's Peace Monument on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hiroshima trip planning tool .
