Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome)

August 6 , 2021

Atomic bombings of Hiroshima

Held on the night of the anniversary of the atomic bombing as a way to pray for lasting world peace. It began shortly after the end of the Second World War, when citizens and people who had lost loved ones in the war began setting hand-made lanterns floating down the river. The lights within each lantern are lit from the fires left from the atomic-bombing of Hiroshima.

*Scaling Down to Prevent Spread of the Novel Coronavirus(Floating lanterns are cancelled)
