If you have very young children, the atomic bomb museum is not a great idea just because it will be difficult for them to understand and even scary. This monument, however, you can visit with a nice stroll through the park, and it's abstract enough that kids aren't going get upset. It also delivers in a powerful way the message... More

We came upon this monument after crossing the bridge from the Atomic Bomb Dome on our way to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. It’s a fitting tribute to all the children that died from the result of the atomic bomb explosion. There is a plaque near the monument describing the history of the monument.

Never been so moved by witnessing school children from all over Japan proceed in front of this monument to honour what this statue stands for. It did and still does bring tears of joy to my eyes to see how the japanese people evolved from the darkest day in human history to draw positive energy and to become the advocates... More

Once you hear the story behind this memorial in the museum, you will be moved upon seeing this memorial and understanding just how many children lost their lives on that fateful day and the years that followed.

I wouldn't go back again, however it was on the way to the dome. It's quite a small monument but has a great reasoning for is existence.

This is a memorial to the children that died on that fatal day in world history. Surely if we ever needed an example of why nuclear weapons should not be part of this world this is it. Really moving.

This made me cry more than any other place. It was a tribute to all the children who died in the attack, or as a result of exposure.

During school we studied Japanese and heard this story many times of the 1000 paper cranes. It was great to finally see this memorial in person. I found it to be really moving.

This monument is dedicated to the children who died because of the atomic bomb explosion. It was inspired by the death of one of them 10 years after and this child who died of leukemia inspired a fundraising among many schools in Japan which ultimately led to building this monument. There is a panel which tells this story in more... More

really is all part of the peace museum area and a natural part of it. Surrounded by 1000s of paper swans. Do all as one visit with the museum and A bomb dome
