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.

Children's Peace Monument Reviews
Un des emplacements indispensables à voir avant d'arriver au mémorial. Avons eu la chance d'avoir une chorale d'enfant devant. Beau moment. more »One of the essential locations to see before arriving at the memorial. Were lucky enough to have a child choir in front. It's a good time.
小学校の道徳の時間に勉強した、原爆の子の像。 モデルとなった佐々木禎子さんのお話は、記念館に写真と共に展示がされているので、まずそこで彼女とこの像が建てられた経緯を学んでから訪れると良いです。 more »The image of the child of the atomic bomb studied at the time of morality of the elementary school. Sadako Sasaki, who became a model, is on display at the memorial hall along with photographs, so it's a good idea to first learn how this statue was built with her.
