The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is behind the Atomic Bomb Dome in the delta between the Ootagawa and Motoyasugawa Rivers, and here you can really feel what Hiroshima is as "a city of water and green." Cross the bridge and you'll soon see a flat stone with a flame on it. This is called the "Flame of Peace" and it was ignited on August 1st during the 19th memorial of the war by 7 women born on the very day the A-Bomb was dropped. Since then, it has been blazing along with the idea to keep it aflame until all the nuclear weapons on the earth disappear. On the surface of "the Cenotaph for the A-bomb Victims" behind the flame, these words are engraved: "Let all the souls here rest in peace; For we shall not repeat the evil." And the stone chest holds a registry of the names of persons who died from the bombing.
Every year, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony is held on August 6th and many people in the world visit here for consoling, including those who are the victims of the A-bomb and their living family.
