The children of Japan gathered together to make a peace memorial for Hiroshima. They made thousands of paper cranes and delivered them to Hiroshima. They are on display now at the Peace Memorial Park along with a sculpture and a bell.
We visited Peace Memorial Park where many memorials are placed in memory of the 140,000 who were killed in the atomic blast back in 1945.
The A-bomb Dome Memorial is the remains of a government building that was very close to center of the blast zone.
Later we went to the Peace Memorial Museum and looked at their very graphic displays most of which I won’t show you here.
