What people are saying:

I read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes in elementary school and have never forgotten the story. Reading it as a young child, I didn’t understand that Sadako had been a real person. It was only years later when I was learning world history and about the events of WWII that I understood. Beneath the monument, there is a peace bell that visitors can ring, offering their prayer for world peace and Sadako’s wish for a world without nuclear weapons. Definitely a worthy effort.

    Nice memorial

    Childres Peace Monument is dedicated to the children who died from the bomb, symbolized by Sadaki Sasaki. I highly reccomend to read Sadakis story - it is heartbreaking and nice at the same time.

    Another reminder of the horrors of the war

    The Children's Peace Monument is inside the Peace Memorial Park. It's formed by a central sculpture and several paintings, all reminding the horrors of the war and how it affected the kids.
