The A Bomb Dome

Beneath and inside the door to this "Memorial Mound" are the cremated remains of 70,000 unidentified atomic bombing victims.

 Survivors of the atomic bombing began contributing funds to build a permanent vault at this site and in 1955 this "Memorial Mound" was completed. 

Children's Peace Monument dedicated to the children killed by the atomic bombing.

The Fire of Hope for eternal world peace. It has never burned out since August 1st, 1964.

The Fire of Hope for eternal world peace can be seen in the background. The A Dome is visible behind that.
