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.
