Cherry Blossom Season is fast Approaching.


Constructed with the hope of eternal world peace, the park consists of a number of peace-promoting monuments. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum exhibits visual materials showing outlooks of Hiroshima at the time when it was granted with permanent peace after the war.

You can see several sites including the A-bomb dome that has been designated as a World Heritage Site, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Hall for Atomic Bomb Victims, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, and International Conference Center Hiroshima. The bell chimes for peace within the Peace Memorial Park was selected as one of “Japan Sound View Best 100”.

Also, this place is a popular spot to admire beautiful cherry blossoms.
Every year you can see hundreds of people having Hanami near the rivers all along the peace park. As soon as the blossom blooms, then the crowds will follow.
