See my review of the Peace Museum for more info but basically this is a simple and poignant reminder of an event which must never happen again.

Through the Cenotaph you can see the flame and atomic bomb dome, forming the perfect place to take a moment to remember and pay your respects to those that died that day. It is also a perfect reminder that we should be striving for peace in our world.

The cenotaph is in the middle of Hiroshima Peace Memorium Park and is a promise/oath that the same mistakes will not be repeated again to secure future generations. It has a simple design without dramatic exaggerations. The impressive peace flame is also nearby.

The list of persons who died during and after the destruction of Hiroshima continues to be updated as the remaining survivors pass away. A fitting memorial.

The Peace Park is filled with museums, monuments, and memorials, almost to the point where it's overwhelming. The cenotaph is certainly a pretty memorial, but I found some of the others to be more moving and interesting.

Take time to look through the cenotaph and you can see how it was constructed to frame the Flame of Peace and the bomb dome.
