This monument is very touching as it tells the story of a girl that died of leukemia 9 years after the a-bomb hit Hiroshima and how she made origami paper-cranes to get a wish and survive. Now children all over the world make peace paper-cranes...More

In my primary school we once made paper cranes and sent them to this memorial, so being able to go and visit it was special to me. Seeing all the paper cranes is a beautiful way to remember such a sobering, tragic story.

I love history so I found this to be a really great place to go in Japan. If you are a history buff go to see all that you can in Japan...it is such a fascinating country.

I get it, but perhaps the sight of the Atomic Bomb Dome pushed the Children Peace Monument down the pecking order.

It is sad to learn the story behind the monument - the story of a young girl who suffered from leukemia caused by the atomic bomb and eventually passed away despite folding a thousand paper cranes in the hope of recovery. The monument is surrounded...More

A must while in the memorial park. Serves as a reminder of the destruction of war and the innocent lives that were lost, especially children.
