    On August 6, 1945 an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, destroying the city in an instant. This park was created in the centre of Hiroshima as a memorial to the dead and to pray for lasting world peace. There’s the Atomic Bomb Dome which is registered as a World Heritage Site, and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum showing the devastation of the bomb, and various memorials to the dead. The park itself is very scenic, with its woodland and riverside walks.
    The sound of the Peace Bell is one of the 100 Soundscapes of Japan.
