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
When visiting the park, several people rang the bell. I love bells, and this one's tone really carries, and has the proper sound to convey loss, hope, and memory. more »
Mooi monument dat je tegen komt in het peace park. Jammer van de aanleiding om dit monument te plaatsen maar wel mooi. more »Beautiful monument that you encounter in the Peace park. A pity of the occasion to place this monument but nice.
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.
