Hiroshima Peace Park
The Atomic Bomb Memorial Cenotaph contains the register of all who have died as a result of exposure to the atomic bomb. It now lists more than 180,000 people. The arch over the stone coffin is a replica of an ancient haniwa house, shielding the souls of those who died. Through its arch you can see the Flame of Peace
and the A-Bomb Dome. The stone here is inscribed: ‘Let all souls here rest in peace, for we shall not repeat the evil’.
