In Hiroshima city center scenic spot in the original explosion park, visitors like knitting here should be regarded as a marker of the Japanese heartache.

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.
The Children's peace monument is located in the center of the peace park. And circling it their are thousands upon thousands of paper cranes around this monument dedicated to "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes." It is always miraculous so see the effort put into creating and maintaining this memorial monument.
On the north side of the original explosion Memorial hall, a river away from the original explosion dome, there are many paintings made by thousand paper cranes. And the ultimate destination of these thousand paper cranes is to break them into paper pulp and reconstitute paper. If you look carefully, you will find that the postcards attached to the original explosion memorial are made of the pulp broken by thousand paper cranes. It's free. There are some tourists taking pictures here.
Behind the statue is a sad story, mainly to commemorate a girl who survived the original explosion but died at the age of 12 after she was infected with blood cancer by radiation released during the explosion. In addition to mourning the girl, it is more important to arouse the world to love peace.
Located in Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, this is a monument in honor of Sadako Sasaki & the thousands of other children who were victims of the atomic bomb. This lovely monument was built from funds raised by Japanese school children.

Thousands of origami cranes from all over the world are delivered to/displayed at the monument on a regular basis.
This monument honors Sadako Sasaki and all of the other children who were affected by the atomic bomb. In the statue Sadako is holding a crane as it was said that she died while trying to fold 1,000 cranes to wish for health after she had been diagnosed with leukemia as a result of the bomb radiation. Here it is common to see families and children placing their own senbazuru (1,000 cranes) to wish for peace.

Because many of these buildings are built after the event, the buildings are very spacious, and the background is the pure blue sky.
