Peace Memorial Park was created in remembrance of the lives lost in the atomic bombing on August 6, 1945, and to pass along the message that this tragedy should never be repeated. There are numerous cenotaphs and monuments in the park with flowers and origami cranes. At the Peace Memorial Museum, you will be able to see films, pictures, belongings of the victims, and testimonies by the survivors.
Across the river from Peace Memorial Park, the symbol of destruction stands right where it was. The formal Industrial Promotion Hall was bombed out at an instant, and the iron frame and some walls were the only remains. Most of the buildings around it were blown away in an instant. The dome was declared as UNESCO's World Heritage site and is a reminder of the tragedy forever.
