Each year many dignitaries visit our city from all over the world.

The City of Hiroshima is calling on world policymakers to visit our city to touch upon the realities of the atomic bombing and to understand the Spirit of Hiroshima, which is the wish for nuclear weapons abolition and the realization of lasting world peace.
