You don’t go to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park for the Cenotaph, but it is a nice sculpture with a strong story to see on your way to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Remember to look through it to see both the Flame of Peace...More

This is a great place in the park to stop and reflect, but to also see the beautiful view through the Cenotaph to the bomb dome.

Pretty sure I walked past this on an appropriately dreary grey day with my Tour Group after ringing the Peace Bell but before entering the museum, don't know what to say about it really...solemn?

This is a 3 by itself but a 5 as part of the Peace Park. If you are already in the park, you might as well stop by and see it.

This is one of the many monuments in the Peace Park. This one provides a direct line of sight to the atomic dome and the flame.

Walking from the atomic bomb dome toward the museum, I noticed the elements of the Cenotaph but the significance didn’t automatically register in my consciousness. It was only later (when our private tour guide explained each element) that I came to appreciate it. Moving.
