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.

広島平和祈念公園の中にある、平和の鐘です。大きな屋根の下に納まって、撞木が付いています。元安川を挟んで、原爆ドームを望むような場所にあります。原子爆弾が炸裂した瞬間を思いながら、世界平和を願いたいものです。 more »It is the bell of peace in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. It is housed under a large roof and has shrubs. It is located across the Motoyasu River and overlooks the Atomic Bomb Dome. I want to wish for world peace while thinking about the moment when the atomic bomb burst.
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.
