A-Bomb Dome & Peace Memorial Museum

Updated: Feb 19

Hiroshima, Japan


Visit the A-Bomb Dome. The A-Bomb Dome has been left in ruins as a reminder of the supreme destructive potential of nuclear weapons.


The Peace Memorial Museum tells the story of Hiroshima before and after the bomb. The Children’s Peace Memorial is profoundly moving. Outside, a Peace Flame continues to burn until all nuclear weapons are abolished.


There are many stories here. Learn about Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl born in 1943. An outstanding 11-year-old athlete, Sadako was diagnosed with leukemia, ‘the atom bomb disease’. Her best friend told her of a legend that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes would be granted a wish. Sadako’s wish was to get well so she could run again. She started to work on the paper cranes and completed more than 1,000 before dying about a year later.
