Detailed Information

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is a park dedicated to the legacy of the first city in the world to endure a nuclear attack. The park is also dedicated to the memories of the bomb’s victims (About 140,000 of them).

 

The nuclear attack on August 6, 1945, in which the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, is till date one of the most devastating bomb attacks.

 

 

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, which receives a million visitors annually, was planned and designed by the Japanese Architect Kenzō Tange at his Tange Lab firm.

 

The Park is situated on what was once the city’s busiest downtown commercial and residential district. The park was built on an open field created as a result of the nuclear explosion. Today the area consists of memorials and monuments, museums, and lecture halls, all a part of the Memorial park.

 

There is an annual Peace Memorial Ceremony on August 6, sponsored by the city of Hiroshima, which is also held in the park.

 

The purpose of the Peace Memorial Park is not only to immortalize the victims but also to further show the horrors that nuclear warfare can perpetuate, and also clamor for continuous world peace.
