An interesting sculpture on the opposite side of the road from the museum at the entrance to the Park. The sculpture depicts Dante's 9 gates of hell, overwritten by peace in multiple languages, to which a 10th gate has been added representing the hell of nuclear war.

Part of a list of memorials in the vicinity which should all be seen with a well planned walk around the memorial park.

Across a busy road from the Peace Memorial Park. There are too many other memorials in the vicinity that render this monument unmemorable.

Hopeful for the future. The whole park is worth strolling through to absorb the atmosphere. The gates are just one part of the whole complex dedicated to the victims of the bombing of Hiroshima.

If it wasn't for one of the park's maps pointing out the Gates of Peace, I would not have gone to see it. It is directly across the street from the Peace Memorial Museum. On the gates are inscribed the word "peace" in many languages.

The Gates of Peace are located just to the east of the Peace Park on the far side of a major highway. Sitting detached from the park they are little visited and seem almost an afterthought. While they are impressive in their own right they are not nearly as moving as the monuments dedicated to the lives lost in the... More

On opposite side of road to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The glass arches with inscription of the word “Peace” in different languages. Pigeons seemed to be guarding the gates on one winter day.

Positioned at the gate of peace memorial park. A structure consisting of a rectangular array of strings placed in sequence at close range, about 9 feet tall each and aesthetically very beautiful, but the main feature are all those many written on it in almost 50 different languages. Very interesting is to visit it during the day but even more... More

Another well defined and sensitive memorial depicting the whole process to peace and the challenges to this city following the first aggressive use of the Nuclear/ Atomic Bomb. Another lasting memory.
